I highly recommend Dr. Littlefield to all of my friends. I saw Dr Littlefield for joint pain in my hands and I was so impressed by the care I received. So happy to say that I have been pain free for almost a year now.

Dr. Littlefield really cares about his patients and even gave me his cell phone number if I have any questions. I've never had a doctor do that and that sure speaks about what he is all about! My wrist feels so much better thanks to him. I am recommending him to anyone I know with carpal tunnel, wrist pain, finger issues. I went to a hand doctor at Resurgens in Cumming first - and can't recommend him to anyone. Thankful for Dr. Littlefield!!!

I broke my index finger and was nervous because I'm a professional musician. Dr. Littlefield was strongly recommended by a friend that works for Northside Hospital. I had surgery and am doing great! My finger is as if I never had surgery! I have full movement and no pain. Thank you Dr Littlefield!

So caring, compassionate and listened to my complaints. He is also very smart. He made my diagnosis in one minute, explained what was needed and gave me an injection. I finally am pain free and just can't thank him enough. He gave me his cell phone number if I had any questions or problems. I don't know of any other doctors that do that - just another sign of how much he cares about his patients. So thankful he is in Cumming!

Dr. Littlefield came highly recommended by a friend who had thumb arthritis surgery. It's been a year since I had the same surgery. It was very successful and I'm out of pain. He is a wonderful caring doctor.

Very disappointed in Dr. Littlefield. I've been seeing him for 2 years. Every appointment I go to I feel less and less valued as a patient. He had the audacity to tell me that he hates my insurance, they don't pay anything! He goes on to say the only reason he accepts it is because he is prior military. I had to wait 4 hours to see him, it seems he was deliberately was delaying seeing me. If you don't feel the insurance is paying you what u deserve don't do business with them!

He was great before joining Peachtree Orthopedic. Until he joins a different practice that is more considerate of people's time. Do not bother. Hideous practice very poor service extremely disorganized with poor efficiency. I received a call the morning of my appointment informing me that my referral was not in place. I went above and beyond calling my insurance company to rectify the problem so that I could be seen. Travel an hour to wait 3 hours to be seen. Worst service I've ever!
in Cumming, GA |
Dr. Littlefield listened to my hand problem, examined my hand and wrist thoroughly, made the diagnosis and explained it to me as well as his treatment plan. I left his office with so much more knowledge and confidence than I did with another hand doctor I had seen in another practice at the same hospital. I recommend Dr. Littlefield without any hesitation!
in Cumming, GA |
Dr. Littlefield is kind, thorough and relatable. He took his time in explaining my upcoming surgery and listened to my concerns. His experience and the number of carpal tunnel surgeries he has performed makes me feel confident in his abilities.
in Forsyth County, GA |
Dr Littlefield was very caring, and definitely made the right diagnosis because my hand feels great after his care! He took time to listen to me and to examine my hand. I recommend him without any reservation. I've sent family and friends to him and they've gotten great care too!
in Alpharetta, GA |
Well, I have never seen such an unprofessional doctor in my lifetime. He was so rude and so bad in behaviour that we never went to him again. He is racists and loose control easily. Moreover, when he is upset he give wrong treatment which might be because of his age and his airforce background and old age. Go at your own Risk
