DX: Trigeminal Neuralgia

Dr. Lechtenberg save my mother's life over 10 years ago with a double aneursm. My primary had referred my to 3 separate dcotor's all in her network and all 3 of them were only able to offer appointments 1 month out. The ratings for 2 out of the three were not that great. I needed a doctor that was experienced, available, and could help me. My mother called Dr. Lechtenberg. Any one battling with this chronic illness knows that compassion, a set plan of action that incorporates that patient as well as the doctor's expertise is paramount. This doctor is it. Dr. Lechtenberg accepted my call this Sunday at a moment that the pain was so intense I could barely speak. He guided me calmly, explained what the issue was with the medication I was on and gave me an immediate solution THAT WORKED! I will post again as my journey continues because people need to know there is help out there and doctor's that know about this illness. Thank you Nikki for being amazing administrative support and thank you Dr. Lechtenberg for helping through this journey.
