Dr Loddergard was dismissive and misdiagnosed my case

Dr Loddergard spent 5 minutes with me, said there was nothing that could be done to help me. He was dismissive toward me, he treated me like I was making it up. I scheduled an appointment with another doctor in his own practice group who took time, ordered an MRI and found the cause of some serious spinal issues. I would never see or recommend this Dr Loddergard to anyone I care about. Nobody should be treated this way when they are so vulnerable.

Needed immediate spine surgery. Dr. Loddengaard quickly fit me into his schedule, scheduled MRI and then surgery all within less than two weeks. One week after surgery I'm almost back to normal and pain free.

Waited way too long to be seen

I think it's obvious that this office double or even triple books every appointment. I waited an hour andd forty minutes! I felt like a number with this doctor-no connection at all. To wait so long (both appointments) only to be rushed through my appointment. Not impressed. I will be finding another doctor that actually spends time with his patients.
