Ratings for Dr. Thomas Letourneau
After 13 doctors over 20+ years, Dr. Letourneau has been the _only_ one that seems to have gotten my diagnosis correct and is willing to work with intelligent patients to find a proper combination of medications that are effective without undesirable side effects. Some times, all the talking in the world will not correct a chemical imbalance in the brain. Dr. Letourneau understands this and doesn't waste my time or money with unnecessarily long appointments just to check on how I'm doing and if the medications are still working correctly.
If you're looking for a doctor to blow sunshine up your tail, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a doctor to listen to your problem and goal, see what's really going on, and work with you to get you better - then Dr. Letourneau is excellent. I had been to eleven other doctors and similar therapists prior to finding Dr. Letourneau. Finally, a man who understood that I didn't want to be on meds forever, who understood which meds worked and why, and a man who realized there was more going on than what appeared to everyone else. I wasn't looking for empathy or sympathy, I was looking for help and found it in abundance in Dr. Letourneau.
This man could care less about you. He made sure I did not getSSD. He finally said at my last visit what I knew all along. "We do not know anything about the brain". And this man has the right to tell a judge you cannot recieve SSD. Gives you a few minutes to talk and writes perscription. Then you pay and leave. No caring attitude. Knew I suffered severly from anxiety and depression.
I have been a patient for 4 months and have found my time with Dr. Letourneau to be most helpful. As difficult as it is to share some situations, he has been a wonderful listener and has given me advise that I can put into practice right away. I am a stronger person because of the counseling I have received.
Let's his receptionist triage patients. She did not know if he was taking new patients.(?!) I called on a Thurs. and never heard back. I called on the following Tues. Therefore, this dr. does not consider a person who attempted suicide an urgent matter. Won't allow patient to schedule appointment without taking personal info over the phone and without insurance #. We were in the midst of switching insurance policies (it was early Jan.)& did not have our new number yet. I wrote him a letter about my concerns. Never saw him or heard from him. I guess he's just too busy to care.
