Lawrenceburg, KY |
Horrible bedside manner! I understand doctors have to to watch for someone just looking for someone to give them pain meds. But when you have no history of addiction and he walks in automatically judging you assuming that is what you are there for. All I wanted was some way to manage my pain and he was no help. And that was after sitting in the waiting room for 2 hours. I will never go back there!!!!!!!!!!

I saw Dr. Lingreen in 2012; Dr. Li ngreen was exceptional as far as his"bedside manner", goes....... He never judged me or made me feel uncomfortable.......I am 67 years old and I have been to doctors over my life time that I can very honestly say that I know a Good doctor when I see one! I was Flt. Attendant for years but retired 2007. The reason I would like to see Dr. Lingreen is BC of the injuriesi I encountered while flying. In my Lumbar area, I have been on Methadone for 12 yrs. Thank

Completely arrogant and absolutely no concern for patient whatsoever. Practically accused me of not having pain when my mri and X-rays indicated I have no cartilage in my thumbs or knee!! No wonder it's easy to schedule an appt. Who wants to see a "physician" who belittles you .
