Frankfort, KY |
awesome doctor that knows his stuff. He stern but really has helped me, The knee injections are praticular good, I have done this other places and it would last maybe a month. D. Lingreen will last 6-8 months for me. The new hormone theraphy he introduced in the summer is a game changer, my life has taken on new meaning and I am happy, my joints are better and Im sleeping better than ever. This doctors on top of things and really gives patients options for there pain.

Dr knows his stuff. He truthful and will be very honest with you. My experience is he loves his patients.. I have had chronic pain for 20 years, he has helped me Emotionally, spiritually, and physically. I would rate him a 10 if you had 10 stars. I'm really looking forward to see my results with the new hormone therapy, we have started to help with my joint pain. Already lost 5 lbs and feel great. 10 days into my new me. Joint pain almost gone away. Don't take my word for it, try it yourself.

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 .
