Offered to see me in person. Used mask as did I during the visit. Gave me good suggestions on how to manage chronic swelling in my foot. Very thoughtful and caring manner. Did not rush me.

I had a great experience with Dr. Loncarich. I ruptured my Achilles tendon and Dr. Loncarich performed my surgery. He is extremely informative, very understanding of any concerns, and stays updated with the newest/best procedures. The surgery was successful and I could not be happier that I chose to go with Dr. Loncarich. I would recommend him to anyone.

Ten years ago I had bunion surgery by Dr. Loncarich. The doctor I wanted to see was in a car accident and unavailable. Dr. L was assigned to me and I believe it must have been his first foot surgery ever. Not only was the bunion not corrected but I was left with both of my second and third toes crossed over which hurts to this day. Not wanting to go into surgery again, I am unable to wear shoes without prophylactic measures.

Dr Loncarich was a God send for me. I had an unsuccessful surgery on my Achilles by another Dr. at different facility. After 18 months of continued pain (1st Dr told me this was normal), I went to Dr Loncarich for 2nd opinion. He diagnosed the problem and performed surgery in April 2018. I was able to walk comfortably all over Italy 5 months later! I could not be happier with him, his staff and facilities. He spent plenty of time with me and made sure he answered all my questions. I highly recommend Dr David Loncarich for your foot and/or ankle needs.

I've been a patient of Dr. Loncarich's for many years but if I didn't come see him every few months , both he and his assistant would make condescending remarks like "Oh....you haven't seen the doctor for two months." Not to mention whether or not I needed to see the doctor...you should come see him whether you needed to or not. I just felt very uncomfortable with their attitude. Too smug and over-confident. They need to bring it down a notch.

He was rude and condescending. I thought I could look past this, hoping his affiliation with Fondren Orthopedic Group meant he was a good surgeon. However, the surgery was not successful. I had another surgery by a different doctor, and I am finally able to walk again.
