Patient Comments (7)

He seriously has the worst bedside manner I have ever witnessed. He never listened and had no empathy. Was not helpful in any manner at all. Honestly the appointment was a waste of time in addition to how rude he was.

Dr. Langheinrich was outstanding.. I was in a bad four-wheeler racing accident and had to have 6 vertebrae fused together. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Doctor Langheinrich is phenomenal and I would recommend him 100%.

I saw Dr. Langheinrich for the first time in January 2017 and ultimately had surgery. I am so pleased with the outcome and have had no regrets. Everyone I've talked to notes that back surgery is iffy, but mine did what it was supposed to and I credit Dr. Langheinrich with how great I feel today.

Dr. Langheinrich is top notch. He did a wonderful job with my ACDF surgery - he told me what he was seeing, what to expect with the surgery, how long it would take, and what the recovery would be like. He is straightforward and direct. Note that he seems rushed - in my case he didn't spend much...more
