No bedside manner, wouldn't even give me a simple muscle relaxer. Not very friendly at all & didn't care if I smoked weed for my pain because he wasn't going to write me anything even with the herniated disk, DDD, bulging disk & patellafemoral disease. There is no excuse but I did have to take a urine test, for nothing.

After spending 3 hours in the office, I was offered injections and I asked for medication to get me through after a MVA. He did not send medication to pharmacy over holiday weekend. I had to get another physician to prescribe something for pain. When his office opened, his staff stated he would not prescribe medication since I was prescribed something by another doctor. All he wants to do is multiple injections, he doesn’t want to help you, he just wants your money. Stay away! Don’t waste your time or money.

Dr. Lonseth and his staff are wonderful. He’s giving me my life back. I do annually injections which allows me to deal with my back pain. I started seeing him when he was with EJ. I consider him to be one of the top 5 doctors in my life.

Amazing doctor. He helped me to be able to walk again without major surgery and without pain medicine. Been going to him for about 10 years and travel to go to him.

I've been going to Dr. Lonseth for about 6 months. I am now looking for another doctor. I wait at least and hour for each visit. I have also had to call the office numerous times to remind them to call in the prescription. Now when I've been calling for weeks no one will call me back. Don't waste your time with this doctor and his office.

Lonseth is very comprehensive in his management of quieting pain. Trying to rid myself of pills, but the stimulator leads are difficult to keep a continuing response. My knees & legs give me hell.

Sad sad day for the new office people at dr.lonseths office. Again they messed me over for the second month in a row. Went in for a routine visit and the office personal said they called in my prescription. Called the pharmacy and they said they didn't receive it..called the office, they said they sent it.. Called back the pharmacy, nope didn't get anything. Some where somebody is lying. Don't think it's the pharmacy...js.... wonder when this office is gonna get it together. NEVER...

My doctors at Tulane Hospital highly recommended and referred me to Dr Lonseth. As a new patient he took time to get to know me as a person and not just a patient. He gave me my treatment options and I felt that he was honest, not pushy and very experienced at his speciality. I went forward with my lower back injections and I not feel like I made the right choice..my pain is almost gone.

I have been a patient of Dr Lonseth's for years...I simply adore him. He really takes time to understand that I have various spine issues due to a bad fall I had years ago. I know he is very knowledgeable has has helped with a variety of minimally invasive procedures that have given me long-term pain relief. He truly is the best doctor and I would never trust anyone else but him. Janet

I agree that ever since he has moved the wait time has increased tremendously to 2 hours on a good day! When they forget to follow thru on what they say they will do,the staff gets irritated and blames patients for their mistakes. In addition, any mistake they make warrants a new appointment to collect another fee. This is truly a shame because he is a good doctor and his management staff is destroying him. I'm sorry I will no longer refer anyone ever again

I like Dr. Lonseth and feel he's been good with treating my daughter's chronic back pain. However, his office staff is AWFUL. They never return calls. They charge co-pays even though my daughter has met her annual out-of-pocket maximum and now I'll likely have to file a grievance with my insurance company to get that money back. And even though Dr. Lonseth is in-network for our insurance, the next door surgery center he uses is not.

Never. He's only out for the money. Went in with pain on both sides on my back. Wanted to do an injection on the right side then 2 weeks later go back to the other side when he could do a bilateral injection. What's really going on. The front staff is clueless about my insurance. I met my deductible so I'm at 100%. But this Tina charged me for the visit. She said I have to pay 10% which wasn't true. I would never go back.i will report him to the medical board

I went to see Dr. Eric Lonseth today as a new patient. I left angry, absolutely shocked and frustrated. I had confirmed that he was a participating physician with People’s Heath. They said he was and I drove 45 min, expecting to schedule a Sacroiliac injection.. I arrived and filled out paperwork, and then saw his PA, Daniel, who agreed an injection would help. Then Lonseth comes in and tells me that the surgi-center (which is on-site) DOES NOT accept Peoples Health. Unbelievable.
