Honest doctor

Dr Lederhaus was very thorough and professional during my exam. I went to him several years ago for a second opinion. I highly recommend him.

Thank you, Dr. Lederhaus

Thank you Dr. Lederhaus. All of your office staff are absolutely amazing. Special to thanks to Crystal, Andrea and Pamela for getting our Insurance approved and pushing the schedule forward to get her surgery in time before she went back to her college. We cannot thank you all enough. Dr. Lederhaus never pushed us to do the surgery. Crystal moved mountian and sea to get physical therapy going and the surgery approved. Andrea squeezed us into the schedule at a busy top surgical center, Casa Colina. And Dr. Lederhaus had to come in at 6:00 am to fix my daughter's 7mm disc herniation. He took away her 8 months constant pain and she was walking that evening. Post-op visit was again wonderful . He gave my daughter advice and recommendations about future activity. He knew she is young but he found a way to talk to her and win her trust. It has been nearly two months and she is back to her swim practice with her team. We hope she has a speedy recovery. We want to thank you Dr. lederhouse and Inland Neurosurgery institute for giving my daughter's life back.

back patient

Dr Lederhaus did myback fusion in 2001. Everything went well.It took some doing to get released back to work as a full time police officer. the state requires certan criteria to get releaed back to full time work as an on duty police officer. I brought a sample letter to the Dr from another Dr who does a lot of work comp and knows what is required. Dr Lederhaus did the letter and i was finally alllowed to return to work. Dr Lerhaus told me after two years, he would remove the rods placed in my spine. When I did come back a few days later, he told me the paperwork was a hassle and would not remove the hardware and didnt want o do anymore work comp cases. NOw, I have a blown out disc related to my fusion, which the DR did say would happen. again, he told me when he did the 1st surgery, he would perform the others. However after going back and forth for two months with Pamela, the scheduler of surgeries, the Dr refused to treat me because we were not in the there MPN ( a list of providers from work comp insurance}. They knew from the begnning they were not in there MPN but if my insurance would do the approve the referral, they would see me, I did everything in my power including getting direct referrals from my Dr so they could take me in as a patient. They still refused to see me after wasted two months of my time and the adjusters, IM sure workers comp may not pay as much as a PPO. I just wish they would have been HONEST from the beginning. Doctors Lederhaus and Rodriguez are OUTSTANDING surgeons.That is why i wanted them to do the surgery and remove the originl hardware as promised. i dont blame Dr Lederhause for getting more money, however there should be some patient loyalty. Ive been in horrible pain for over a year from the blown disc. NOw I have to find another surgeon who can do what DR Lederhaus said he would do in 2001. If you have insurance that will cover, i would recommend. BUt I should not have to had jumped through hoops when tey had NO INTENTION of treating me

Doctor's Response

This actually is a real patient. The first I heard of this issue was reading this post which is unfair criticism without your knowledge of the truth. I have sent you copies of my records where you asked me if I would recommend removing the hardware and I said "no" as there is no point in removing the hardware. I have never removed hardware for simply removing hardware unless there is a problem with the hardware. With respect to work comp, it has become difficult to work with work comp as the work comp insurance more often than not does not allow docs to properly treat their patients which is frustrating not only for the patients but the docs as well. Since I am not a provider for your work comp MPN I cannot see patients who are members of that MPN. These work comp network insurance plans are often no different than contracting with Blue Cross, Aetna, etc. If a doc does not have a contract with those insurance companies that doc is not able to see those patients. Pure and simple. That is just how it is. If there was some misunderstanding between your work comp carrier and my office I am not aware of that. I had hoped you would have recognized I am not the bad guy here and your posting was inappropriate and not true to the facts. Sorry you are upset. Not much I can do about your situation.

I went to this doctor for a second opinion. All he did was bad mouth the other neurosurgeons in the community. Never saw anything like that. I went home and researched the so called bad doctor and I went to see him for a third opinion. I want to thank Dr. Lederhaus for referring me to a professional and competent neurosurgeon

Doctor's Response

Being as how I have been the president of the Association for Medical Ethics I am under continual attack by some unethical docs as you can see from the number of "people found this helpful." If you Google my name and Physician Owned Distributors you can see what I have been battling. BTW, I have never seen any patient by this name or Klein.

Never again will I see this doctor.

Don't even bother seeing this doctor. Unless you want to hear about him, him him.... my visit was a ridiculous joke. I left feeling that I wasted my time. Finally found another doctor at another practice in the area certified to perform the procedure I needed. What was really frustrating is if nobody in Dr. Lederhaus's practice is certified to perform something, why the heck don't they help the patient and refer the to someone who is?? It's unacceptable!!

Another posting by an unethical doc. It's amazing. Google for the truth.
