very easy to talk with, excellant interpersonal skills, very professional, showed concern for my problem and even a problem from several years ago, gave me options on treatments and didn't push any one option when I showed some concern. From the time of my x-rays until I saw him was less than 5 minutes. I would definately recommend Dr LeGeyt.

I had multiple surgery’s by other Dr’s. By far hands down he is the best I’ve had. He answers all my questions and casted all my fears aside. But most important Dr.LeGeyt has a personality this really sets him apart from all others.

I have been seeing Dr. LeGeyt for several years now as problems occur with my hands. He is sensitive to the fact that I am a professional pianist and my hands are everything to my career. He is compassionate and really knows how to fix any hand problem. I highly recommend him.

I was greeted right away, they took X-rays of my hand and the doctor injected a cordizone shot. The pain in my trigger finger passed within 2 day.

Was very short. Trying to rush me out of his office. I am in a lot of pain with carpal tunnel and keeps sending me back to work. He was rude and sarcastic. It seems he didn’t believe I am in pain. I don’t recommend him to anyone. He is one of the most unprofessional Dr.s for a specialist I have ever dealt with.
