This guy is a Clown! Over an hour of waiting for him to see me, he was dismissal of the family MD, and other doctors treating myself. He said "you have bad feet!" And suggested I go to a surgeon, what? He will speak over you try to scare you into more services for his cronies. Buyer beware here, don't give this Clown any of your hard earned cash. I knew right away when he started answering cell phone calls. Scam.

He misdiagnosed me and refused to accept that he was wrong. Nobody should get anxiety when going to see a specialist when they are supposed to help you.

My rheumatologist retired-my records went to him. He had the biopsy report that confirmed my disease literally in his hands @ my 1st appt. More than 2/3 of the appt was spent with him interminably saying I didn't have said disease & why, as I kept asking him to look @ the biopsy report he held in his hands. I prevailed;he finally looked at it. At 2nd appt he said my swelling was imaginary. Two days before 3rd appt, after digging my watch out of my imaginary swollen arm, I called & fired him.

I was willing to give him the benefit of a doubt and visit despite the negative reviews. In fact, I went to 3 appointments. He was brusque and straightforward, which I generally prefer, but was 45 minutes late (for an early morning appt.) and spent my appt time telling me of anger with staff, quickly prescribed medication and was gone. At the 3rd visit I felt he slowed down but was trying to scare me into moving into a next level drug. I'm going with my gut and not going back.

He spent less than 15 minutes with me during my initial appointment. During this time he did most of the talking, interrupted me, ignored me, answered a text on his phone, told me to stop my medication, and sent me on my way. Rude, unprofessional, disrespectful.

I agree with the person who said Dr. Letourneau is horrible. Thats puting it mildly. He is beyond rude and unprofessional and insensitive. The best thing about seeing him is leaving his office. His nurse Nancy was very kind and compassionate.

He's horrible dr.he is rough and full of himself ,while examining me ,he dug his fingers into my neck,back and sides,which of course elicited a response.his diagnosis was wrong,and when I received a 2nd opinion ,my new Dr.laughed and said that Dr. Letourneaus diagnosis was all to familiar since most of his patients received the same diagnosis ,and he insists on prescribing very expensive medication even though cheaper brands are available.He even charges for joining his support group....
