My son celebrates his 19 birthday tomorrow and all because of Dr. Linnerson. After 6 doctors had said I couldn't have another baby he said he would do whatever it takes to help me and he did. I am for her grateful.
Not good bedside manner
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Steven M Linnerson - Posted on August 30th, 2013
I was referred by my PCP to Dr Linnerson for my annual well-woman exam. The staff was friendly and helpful. The office was in an odd location and hard to figure out where to park, then where to go into the building, and then where the office was once you were in the building. I got there on time. Very short wait in the outside office, but once they got me undressed with the sheet things wrapping around me, I waited forever. I could hear him talking with another patient in a loud voice in the next room the whole time. With me, he was very unprofessional; borderline creepy when explaining how to do a self-breast exam. Not sure if he was trying to make light of it or not, but I am old enough to have had it explained multiple times and know how to do it myself. He wasn't rough on me during the pap exam, but not the gentlest person, either. He was brusque in manner and acted like he knew everything, and everything I said was wrong. He also contradicted what multiple other drs have told me previously and said, 20 years have passed--medicine has changed (without backing it up with any studies in print or online for reference--SO, I cannot even vouch that he indeed got the diagnosis/treatment plan accurate). The staff called me the next day; left a vague message, then I couldn't find the paper with my secret code number, so I never did get my results, even though I spoke with them after calling to find out my secret code--they said I had to call the number on the message (which I erased, since I didn't kinow my secret code and it said if you have trouble, call the office; plus, the live people also kept calling me and leaving messages--only to tell me to call the automated number to get my message, which they refused to give me, as I mentioned--round and round we go). I will not be going back.

I found Dr.Linnerson to be uncompassionate when I went to see him. I had just found out I was pregnant and he kept on telling me that there was a possibility that I would lose the baby. I found that to be disheartening and rude.This was my first pregnancy and the last thing I wanted to hear is how I can lose my pregnancy. I knew that it was a possibility, but an Ob/GYN shouldn't have to keep on bringing it up. I went to a different OB after that!!!
Dr. Linnerson has the God complex.

I was referred to Dr. Linnerson by my oncologist. I explained the problems I was having to him and he was very condescending to me. He talked to me and asked me questions like I was a child. He ignored my questions and laughed at my concerns. He has a terrible bedside manner. He was so rough on me during the pelvic exam that my lower abdomen was sore for two days afterward. He thinks so highly of himself that he will only refer to himself in third person. Even if he is a good surgeon with a lot of experience, it is still just not worth it to go to him. On a different note, his nurse and staff were very friendly.

I had my two high-risk babies 22 and 16 years ago. Dr. Linnerson always took the time to listen to my concerns & answer questions. I had a c-section with my second as she was breach. He tried to avoid the surgery, but was unable to turn her. I continue to see his practice for my gynecological needs. He is the best.
One of the worst experiences of my life.

My old OB retired recently, and I was referred to Dr. Linnerson by one of my friends. I looked him up, and since he had nothing but glowing reviews I decided to make an appointment. The staff was very friendly, and the wait was reasonable. He used a friendly tone throughout the appointment, but was often condescending and did not listen to my concerns. He even laughed at my concerns at one point. He made multiple comments about my sexuality that made me feel uncomfortable before referring me to an RE. I don't know if he was just having an off day and I was just at the wrong place at the wrong time or what, but the whole experience with him (not the rest of the staff) was traumatic. :(

I LOVE Dr.Linnerson. He has always been friendly, caring, and just an all around wonderful doctor who I feel extremely comfortable with. I have moved since seeing him with my first son, but will continue to go to him even though its a drive because he is worth it.
