Love Dr Letchuman! He truly cares about his patients and listens well.
in Shreveport, LA |
I received a spinal injection for a ruptured disc from Dr Letchuman. It was a nightmare. The staff did not communicate to me what to expect before or during the procedure. They would just give me drugs in my IV and not tell me what they were. When I asked, they said "That will make you relax." About 3 minutes later they started doing the procedure, and the drug had not had any effect on me! They didn't tell me what was going on at all. At one point the dr said, "Oh! Sorry! Hit a nerve!"

Doctor Letchuman did a most excellent job today handling the procedure and the unexpected severe pain experienced after the procedure. My compliments to him and his staff at the Spine Institute of Shreveport. John Toffton Deputy Warden MCC / LTCW
