In short horrible. I’ve had chronic pain since 1994 when I was hurt on the job. I’ve had about 4 pain doctors in that time. I went to him when the doctor who had been treating me for the last 10 years closed there doors. He was one of the doctors that was recommended to me. At the first appointment I was treated like I was beneath his contempt. I have never seen a more egotistical, non-compassionate, non caring doctor with a God complex than him. I had been on disability, which I received on the first application, since 08. I told him that I had already been approved for a spinal stimulator before my prior doctor closed down. He was completely dismissive and said that I needed a pain pump. I told him that I would have to think about it and do some research. He just about went ballistic and basically dismissed me. All of this occurred in about 5 minutes. I wound up leaving his office knowing that I would be looking elsewhere for a pain doctor. Sorry excuse for a doctor.

Dr Lei has treated me for chronic Radiculopathy pain for a number of years and without his help and concern I would have no quality of normal life. He and his staff approach me with kindness, patience and concern for which I am so very grateful. They are all gifted professionals who take care of the whole patient. They are the greatest blessing to me and I cant thank them enough.

Been seeing Dr. Le for more than 10 years now. Have had dozens procedures done by his team and all have been successful. Granted, there have been varying degrees at times, i.e. a spinal injection may last 3 months one time but then when done later that year the same procedure only provides relief for 3 weeks. But hey, that's just the nature of pain management, I think. The office staff are great to work with. Appointments can be a little hard to get at times, especially on short notice, but they do try everything they can to accommodate you.

It is always an experience with him( Dr. Le Son), but you have to understand the pressure he is under(not taking up for him) from insurance company to Drug Administration making sure that He is abiding by the rules. So what!! he is not your best friend and??? keep it moving he is there to provide a service for you and tries in the hope of helping your pain, to help you live as close to a "Normal Life" as possible with your chronic pain. you don't have to agree with me. But know the facts before criticizing or ranting(raving)on public websites

Lynchburg , TN – Oct 06, 2018
The only thing that matters to him is his ability to make money, he has no compassion for his patients. If you are going to be a pain doctor I believe compassion is the 1st requirement. The fact that the treatment rooms are covered with signs selling all kinds of products like botox I injections for wrinkles, vitamin shots, creams and devices not covered by insurance available for purchase at check out was the 1st sign I was at the wrong place for chronic pain care.

Dr. Le wants to put a nerve blocker in shoulder to help with pain. Had asked ortho doctor about whether or not this would help me in my case and his recommendations was no. For myself, i do not feel comfortable with having this done. Told Dr Lee about what ortho doc said and he pretty much chewed me out because ortho doc does not give me pain meds and i can either go to ortho doc to get pain meds or see him. Dr. Le was very irate and unsympathetic. I do not appreciate being talked down to.

Odessa Lindsey in , TN – May 13, 2018
Terrible expirience with Dr Le. I wish I would have read reviews of him before seeing him. He's rude, rushed and intimidating!I broke down crying the second I stepped foot out of the office. This doctor doesn't have a compassionate bone in his body. If injections and procedures don't work for you then he doesn't seem to want to deal with you. I actually started questioning whether it was just me but it wasn't. Do some research and you'll find others he's treated this way.

I have been going to see Dr. Le for over 5 years. When I first went to see him, he and I disagreed about the cause of my neck pain. I had just had a cervical spinal fusion previously. However, even though we had differences of opinion of the cause, he worked with me to help gain control over my pain. Although my pain can never be completely cured, he has helped me with radio frequency, spinal injections, trigger point injections & tens unit. He is very professional and knows what he’s doing.
