Avoid for any reason. Very unprofessional doctor, doesn’t treat you with care/kind, starts talking about random unrelated and sexual situations from the past after he asked about my orientation. That is absolutely unacceptable. Forgets to call you back, forgets your paperwork and test results. He doesn’t have a lab in his practice so you have to go around town trying to do your lab work in undesirables labs and then meet with him again, when it should should all be done in one stop at his facility. The receptionists and help staff are just as incompetent and unfriendly, they don’t explain anything and even booked the wrong appointments. Do not recommend and will never come back. Doctors like these should not exist.

Dr. Littlejohn is a arrogant and unprofessional. After waiting for over one hour with no indication of when he would actually show up he finally arrived. When I mentioned the long wait time, he simply motioned for the door in the universal symbol for "if you don't like it, you can leave." Well, leave I did. I will never be going back and would discourage anyone from going through the same time waste that I did.

I was totally devastated when the best doctor I had ever seen in all of my 75 years left the area where I lived. His patience was remarkable and his attitude relaxing - he chats and listens and all the while seems to get information he needs to treat you. His kind, gentle touch alone seems healing and reassuring. It's been 10 years since Dr. Littlejohn had me looking for a new physician and I haven't found his equal yet, But now I know where he is. It's about time, Ben Littlejohn.
