Patient Comments (4)
I had a friend who had back surgery couple years ago, he still has pain but it doesn't go down his leg anymore though
Dr. Lederhaus is the best at what he does. He has a lot of experience and I know he would not do surgery if it wasn't necessary. He is honest, thorough and made me feel completely comfortable. I would send family members to him if I had to.

The office is not patient friendly. The doctor is not concerned with the medical condition of the patient. He will not treat you unless the patient gives up all their legal rights by signing the liability form. So don't waste your time with this office. They don't care about your time and having to take off work to deliver the new patient packet days prior to your scheduled appointment to see this rude doctor. This doctor is only concerned about money in his own pocket.
My office is a very efficient and group of concerned employees. I am concerned with your condition. Signing an arbitration form is not mandatory. I prefer having the patient information a couple of days prior to an appointment so I can personally review that information along with the imaging studies so I have a good idea why a patient would be consulting with me when I enter the examination room. It makes me more efficient and informed about your condition.
If you see Dr. Lederhaus you have to sign away all your rights in case of misdiagnosis or medical mistakes. He charges $100 for a cancelled appointment. He will not give any estimates upfront. He doesn't take checks. Money is their main concern (in my opinion), medical problems seem to be secondary. I got a 20 page form to fill out before they would even consider to see me.
My evaluations are comprehensive and accurate. I am not perfect, but I have had 30 years of experience diagnosing all types of conditions. We charge a 100 cancellation fee for patients who simply do not show up for an appointment. When that happens I waste an hour of my time since that is how long we book a new patient. I'm sure you can understand. Money is not our main concern, but it is a business and we do appreciate being paid for the work we do. Would you work for free.
