Patient Comments (2)

Houston, Texas |
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...more

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.
