Dr Lahtinen has always been a concerned and compassionate doctor. He diagnosed me with thyroid disease when others missed it, which made a huge difference to my health. My kids love him too. He is a good family doctor who respects our freedom to make medical decisions for ourselves.

This is a catch 22 b/c I would recommend this doctor since he is professional, helpful, kind, and smart, but I can't recommend most of his staff; the place is a nightmare and nobody is doing anything to control the misconduct. Take Dr. Lahtinen and put him in a clinic of his own with compatible staff and it would be heaven there.

After jumping through hoops to have his office acquire my medical records, I was informed that since I have taken pain meds (which were given to me by doctors because of my extreme pain for Gout) that I would not be accepted as a new patient. This is a first for me. Worst experience I've ever had to deal with. I now at least begin to understand why his rating is where it is. Probably just the scratch of the surface.

He takes Medicare/Tricare & is ok. I've NEVER gotten more RUDE and UNPROFESSIONAL TREATMENT though than when his medical assistant called today (I told her my dear father died 4 days ago, and t that I have a jaw infection and need to have all my teeth pulled next week. ) to make a appointment for me. I can BARELY THINK straight, and she bawled me out. Did NOT EVEN SAY SHE WAS SORRY, about my beloved father when I told her. No COMPASSION and I've gone there before.
