Dr. Leichty was very impressive, and the receptionist quite accommodating in answering my questions, HOWEVER what I assume the office manager was very pushy and flamboyant during my visit. "He" seemed to cut off the office girl in conversation and rushed to make the surgery visit. This operation is a big deal to be, and I'm sorry to not be ready to have fusing, or mechanical parts installed in my body so quickly. Again, Dr Leichty wasn't your normal doctor in that took time to listen and understand, the girl at the counter very pleasant and helpful, very nice offices, short wait times.... just the one bad apple in the bunch!!!

After experiencing a traumatic car accident, Dr. Liechty and his staff worked tirelessly to ensure I received the care I needed right away. His staff was able to coordinate my treatment with my workers compensation administrator and ensured approvals were received in a timely manner. When it was determined I needed a 3 level cervical fusion, I was quickly scheduled for the procedure and made fully aware of recovery expectations and timelines. His team made sure I had everything I needed before, during, and after the surgery. Additionally, Dr. Liechty was able to perform this procedure using technology and equipment that only a few providers in the state can use. This decreased the need for a post-surgical collar and reduced my recovery time. I have no regrets about having the procedure and am so thankful for his skill, expertise, and bedside manner. I will also say, this office is run with a high level of efficiency, visits are on time and the office staff is very friendly and helpful.

Dr. has a male assistant who speaks to people awfully. The doctor is phenomenal and we used to send alot of our clients to him. We no longer send to him due to how rude and careless the assistant is.

Dr Liechty did S I joint surgery for me in June 2017. . I never dreamed I could ever experience such improvements in stability and reduction in pain. I am still improving. There are not words to adequately describe how much that surgery helped me and how much I appreciate the remarkable difference he has made for me in my life. He is the very best!!

GBS in LA – Feb 14, 2019
Dr. Liechty, did surgery on my back in 2016. I was doing fine but do to a bad knee I have fallen a couple of times. My last fall being this week 1-8-2019. My lower back and tail bone are hurting. I am afraid I messed something up he had fixed. He is an awesome doctor, I wish he was near me again so I could get his opinion. I said no one would ever touch my back again but him. When I saw him in Thibodeaux .

Seemed to be a great Dr. unfortunantly my back fusion did not take. A year later and I'm worse than I was before surgery. This Dr is overly confident in his work and would never admit to something going wrong.i just wanted my life back and now I'll never be the same. FML??
