Ratings for Dr. Stephen F. Lefler
I used Dr. Lefler for the birth of my first child in 2004 when he was practicing in Searcy. Would NOT recommend him to anyone. He induced me a wk early. Nurses said I was dilating fine then all of sudden he comes in says there'd problems its taking too long that I Need a c section. Did not close my wound correctly then next day when doc comes on to see me it's not him I ask where he is? Guess what he was on vacation. Coincidence that he sched. My c sec day before he leaves. I think not. Just had my 2 nd child. During my c sec my new doc says wow I usually try to go with same incision so u only have 1 scar but I'm not this time! He asks who did my last c sec n tells me he is surprised he didn't puncture my bladder!!! The incision was so far off than it should have been!!! Don't take the chance by using this " doctor"
I had a c-section and he did not close the incision properly resulting in an open wound that required three weeks of home health. I DO NOT recommend anyone to use this doctor. He was unapologetic about the mistake and unhelpful in my painful recovery. It is a miracle that I didn't get infected and require additional surgery.
I was so sad when this doctor left the searcy area. He delivered both of my babies and did an amazing job. I would recommend this doctor to everyone if he were still practicing in this area. He took my concerns and questions very serioulsy and had a wonderful bed side manner. His nurses were very nice and always there to help answer those questions. I wish he would come back to practice medicine in Searcy.
Very careless. Social climber. Rude if called out anytime. Cannot be awakened at night. Loves c-sections. Faster than laboring a patient and can be scheduled at his own time. Talks disrespectively about his patients to others and talks bad abou othert physicians to anyone within ear shot.
