The second opinion
I came looking for a second opinion of my past surgeries and ongoing problems, I left very pleased that Dr. Lingenfelter thinks he can help me but needs more studies that I didn’t have with me. I can’t wait to see what he can do for me. Dr. Lingfelter and his staff were all very pleasant and it was definitely worth the the 3 plus hour drive.

Excellent doctor
Dr. Lingenfelter is very professional and straight forward. He put me at ease. There are too few doctors who can do that. He was thorough in his examination and in prescribing treatment.

She went over every single thing about my up coming surgery with myself as well as my husband, better then anyone has before and this will be my 4 th neck surgery sadly. This was a lot to go over to and we walked out understanding all of it that’s nice t easy to do I’m sure with this kind of stuff so I just wanna say she truly is great at her job !! And Dr. Lingenfelter well he is 1 of they best Doctor I’ve had the honor to meet and don’t get me started on how lucky I am to have him do my surgeries!!! He has done 1 Already it’s healed wonderfully and now he has to go in and fix another’s mess ups but I have 100 % faith in Dr . Lingenfelter that he is going to get my neck back to great working order and nobody else will have to go in again so this will be the 4 and final surgery!! So YES I would recommend!!
