What People Say About Dr. James Leffingwell, MD

All I needed was a doctor to look at my hearing test results and ok my hearing aids. The office staff in Mansfield is LOST. The online check in is a joke leftover from the 90's. Since they put my address in wrong I really had to hunt to do the checkin. Showed up for my appt and doctor was off in the ER. OK. Came back a week later and was handed more pages of forms to fill out. I said no and got my copay back. As I was leaving I heard them all laughing at me in the back.

Front desk and billing people don’t seem to know what they’re doing, rude. Last 2 times I have been here I have spent over an hour in the waiting room.

Dr. Leffingwell is very experienced and is thorough. Unfortunately, having only one exam room in his Mansfield office, and reception staff who did not process us properly, resulted in an over two hour wait before we were seen. Other patients were also getting frustrated at the wait. There is a fridge with water and some snacks provided for the wait, but really, one's time is precious and having to wait that long to see a doctor is not acceptable, no matter how professional or good he is.

Dr Leffingwell is without a doubt the best ENT in DFW area. He's extremely professional, engaging and generous. He goes the extra mile for his patients! Very rare these days finding doctors like him.

This dr, when he did talk to us, was RUDE. My son, 19, and had an inner/exterior ear infection. His ear was so swollen there was barely an opening. Care Now prescribed drops & an antibiotic. It improved, but because my son complained of hearing issues we went to go to a specialist. The dr scoffed at previous treatment, jammed something in my son's ear with NO explanation and started sucking crap out. He mumbled some med terms and said to stop the meds and left. No concern for the hearing issues.

My son had tubes put in a year ago. We have had several visits and each time there is a problem. Today's problem was telling us the appointment was at 3:00, even the voicemail that we got the day before said 3:00. When we got there at 2:45, we were told he should have been there at 2:30. The office staff were rude and unhelpful, they didn't seem to care about my son. Done with this doctor (who has NO social skills).

Rushed, non involvement with patient. Very little time spent in listening to patients problems. No explanation of diagnosis. Do not plan to return.
