I really like that Dr. Lonseth tried to figure out what's the mater with my back and why I have had back pain for so long. He didn't just give me pills. He sat and listened. It was not my a disc problem that everyone, including my Neurosurgeon, assumed it was. It took 2 epidural steroid injections. Truthfully, while I don't have 100% pain relief yet (closer to 70 or 80%) it is enough for me to keep working and coaching my kids baseball team. Very pleased with the whole thing. Likeable doctor and I give him high marks!

Dr. Lonseth is very caring and compassionate. He will take the time to try and help or find the appropriate help that is needed to get you better. Bedside manners are fantastic and his staff for the most part are courteous and polite. That being said, the downside is Dr. Lonseths follow up on his own recommendations. He is not very good with following up with what he said he would do, ie;referrals to other specialist or PT, calling you back with results or information. The staff while courteous are clueless. The front desk, Delores would rather check her phone than address your presence. While making appointments her approach is a take it or leave it attitude. Her demeanor could change instantly and it's obviuos she would rather not be there wasting her time on you. The intake nurses are courteous and have seen a endless rotation of new faces. If you need something from them you are out of luck. They forget prescriptions, forget calling in procedures and forget to cancel your appointment if needed. I've seen noumerous patients turned away for early morning procedures because the staff was not able to secure approval and forgot to call the patient(at least a dozen) I've seen patients begging for medicine or prescriptions that were not timly called in or lost the moment the Dr. Wrote them. If you dare to question the staffs qualifications or lack of, your black listed. His staff is not qualified to sharpen a pencil and you'll be waiting weeks into months for simple procedures because they couldn't be bothered. The more you call the more you get ignored.

Dr. doesn't get back w/ you. Have seen him for months and still in severe pain. Staff says I bother them because I call back when I do not receive a return call from Dr. Took me off of my pain med (cold turkey)that I had been on for over 10 yrs. and I hallucinated for about a month. It was miserable. I am still in severe pain and truly do not know what to do or what is next for me. Not a good situation at all. If he is so good, why am I not any better at all? Nor has he been compassionate to me at all. Would not recommend to anyone.

Sent to PT where the therapist caused me to sprain my knee and hamstring. Dr wouldn't see me - wanted me to go back to PT even though I could hardly walk. Had to go to ER. He also wanted my PCP to change my meds. My PCP said why couldn't he do the prescription. Lazy doctor just wants to get other doctors to do his work for him.

Dr Lonseth did not take my complaints about pain seriously. He made me VERY uncomfortable with his uncalled for line of questioning. I would not go back. Also, when I was having my first epidural, the staff was rude and made me very uncomfortable. It was not a good experience and I would NOT go back.

Found Dr. Lonseth to be very caring. Very smart and knowledgeable physician to be sure, but doesn't know a darn thing about LSU football. But hey, we can't all be perfect. Actually, he is very caring and thoughtful. It shows and I am grateful. I highly recommend seeing him if you or someone you love is suffering with pain.

Dr. Lonseth was very kind. He helped my wife and I understand our treatment options. Explained things thouroughly. Did a verteroplasty with bone cement after my wife fractured her spine because of the fragile bones with her osteoarthritis. She now has no pain. I say thank you. Ronald

I have not felt this good in years. He sees what others have not. Dr. Lonseth cares about me, about my pain, about how it affects my family life and work life and it truly shows. I can not praise Dr. Lonseth high enough. Plus, everyone at his office is pleasant and smiles. Seems minor detail but makes us feel welcome.

He really understand the needs and wants of his patients. He makes you feel that you are the most important person in the world when you are with him. I feel better as soon as I leave the office. There is no better pain management doctor in this region than Dr. Lonseth.
