in Sulphur, LA |
I have a been a patient of Dr. Lindsey’s for over 15 years. He has always been accurate on every diagnosis he has made on my back and hip surgeries. I am very proud to have him as my doctor. He has proven to be very much an expert in his field. No other doctor in my past has ever given me so much confidence when I need a surgery. He shows compassion and concern for his patients.

Dr Lindsey made me walk again , saved my life. Everything he told me about my recovery came true, He was right about everything. Everyone that knew him through my travels through the system had only good things to say about him.

Dr. Lindsey is so very thorough, knowledgeable and has such a kind heart. With his experience I know that I am seeing the best in his field. His office runs like a "well-oiled" machine... His staff is well-trained and very courteous.
in Pensacola, FL |
I have carefully waited long enough before I decided to post a bad surgery. I had laminectomy/disectomy about 8 months ago. I recently got imaging showing failed attempt to decompress my L5 disc, it now has a "fishtail appearance and is pressing harder on the nerve root and ligament. I am 30 years old was told he could get me sitting and standing with relief from pain. I am now jobless bankrupt and cannot do physical work for more than 2-3 hours.

Dr Lindsey left me in severe pain for weeks. His statement was that he treats the cause of the pain and not the pain itself. That didn't help me with six weeks of severe pain. His advice included "don't sleep under a fan". I fired Dr Lindsey and went to a different establishment altogether. A review of Dr. Lindseys medical records on me revealed he indicated pain on the wrong arm, requiring more tests. DO NOT go to this man! I went to Dr. Westmark and have been pain free for 3 years now.
Freeport, TX |
I had back surgery 2 years ago, he told me I would be walking/running in 5 weeks. I am now WORSE than before my surgery. Now he will not communicate with me at all, his last advice was for me to buy a cane. I am in constant pain with my back and sciatic nerve. Horrible surgeon!

Waited for almost 2 hours to see him. I talked to a lady who sees him regularly and she said he is never on time. When I finally did get in to see him he had an intern do the pre-screening of my x-rays and talked to me about my issues. When Dr. Lindsey finally showed up the intern was explaining what issues I was having but he did not want to hear what the intern had to say or what I had to say. He talked to me for 5 min and left. The intern did a better job than him! Do not waste you time!
in Houston, TX |
Poor communication and never in is office when patients have set appointments months ahead of time.
in Galveston, Texas |
He is short and to the point which I appreciate because he is clearly trying to quickly get to all of his patients. After spending months trying to get my doctor to find out why I was in so much pain and losing feeling and strength in my right leg I was hopeless. I didn't think any doctor was going to fix me, or even take me seriously until Dr. Lindsey. In one visit he diagnosed the problem and made a plan to fix it. 6 months later and I'm chasing my daughter again. Forever grateful.
