What People Say About Dr. Bret Langenberg, DO

Would not reccommend Mr. Langenburg. My parent had a first hernia surgery that slipped and their stomach started sliding into their chest. They could not eat or drink without being sick and it coming back up. We got a second opinion and they said they didn't want to clean up someone elses mess. Second surgery was worse. What blew us away was his lack of interest in his work or how recovery was coming. We had to go to the ER 3 days after. We gave him oppritunity to see us to help but he declined siting it was no big deal. Now 2 weeks after the second surgery we find out cause of pain again is another hernia. We have lost all trust and dont know what to do. 0 for 2 we cant trust him for a 3rd time especially when he ignores our situation like its no big deal. My parent is still losing weight because they can not eat or drink anything without it being rejected. Do you think he cares? He cares more about his golf swing and tee time then about his patients. Would not recommend him.

Patient abandonment. Went to Urgent Care on a Sunday night because of breathing problems due to 3 consecutive days consistent hiccups and when the doctor at the U.C. did an Ultra Sound & CT on a hard spot he felt in my lower abdomen, he found a grapefruit size fluid mass pushing my bladder and other organs. Prescribed me Reglan for the hiccups and told me to call my surgeon who performed my robotic hernia surgery first thing in the am, which I did at 8:30 am. Call me for more info...

From the moment I walked into Dr. Langenberg’s office it was a good experience. His nurse, Danielle, is fantastic and made me feel comfortable right away. At my consultation with Dr. Langenberg, he was able to answer all of many questions regarding my gallbladder and potential gallbladder surgery. He has a wealth of knowledge and is very personable and has a great sense of humor. I did end up scheduling the cholecystectomy, and his scheduler, Veronica, was helpful and friendly. The surgery
