Dr. Ledbetter was the worst Dr I have ever met. The ER referred me to his office because I was in there 2 nights (over the weekend) with major pain in my back and my known bone disorder. He talked to me like I was a dog the whole time. Didn't touch or even look at my spine. He kept asking me why I even came, like I was wasting his time. I explained it wasn't my choice the ER referred me to him. He acted unconcerned the whole time and kept cutting me off everytime I would try to explain to him.

I was referred to Dr. Ledbetter for a consult for surgery due to a tear in my shoulder. One of the first things the doctor told me was that he no longer did surgery, which was a disappointment because I had scheduled the appointment as a consult before scheduling surgery to repair the tear. I took a half day off of work, only to be told that I would have to make another appointment with a different doctor. The next appointment is not for three weeks, which also delays my surgery. Terrible!

Dr. Ledbetter and his staff are very courteous, friendly and professional. It was a pleasure being their patient. I wasn't rushed by staff or Dr. Ledbetter and my appointment was on time! They all made sure I was comfortable at all times due to my lower back pain. I would recommend Dr. William Ledbetter to family and friends.

After a year of having had a degenerated disk gone bad, I want to see if there was anything I could do to ease sore back in the morning. X-rays taken and there was no change. We discussed my options and decided to try therapy to ease sore back in mornings.
Murfreesboro, TN |
Went in with back pain I had for three months. After x-rays and speaking with me, he recommended we start off with the basics first and see what happens. The basics worked (steroid pack, Aleve, ice, heat, and range-of-motion exercises). Went back after two weeks feeling much better. No nonsense and gets to the point.
