Patient Comments (2)
Metairie La |
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.
