Ratings for Dr. Elizabeth A. Landsverk
When found Dr. L my Mom's world included complete isolation, delusions, visual and auditory hallucinations and saddest of all a complete personality change. Dr. L scheduled a visit to our home! Something NO OTHER DOCTOR even my Mom's GP of 20+ years was willing to do! Dr. L is incredibly knowledgeable and creative in ways to get patients the treatment they need. In our case treatment began with a Dr. prescribed termite infestation that finally got my Mom to leave the house and relocate to a memory care unit. Dr. Landsverk 's treatment plan has eliminated my mother's hallucinations, decreased her delusions and allowed her to engage with staff and fellow residents of the memory care facility. Now my mom has the best quality of life her disease will allow. Dr. Landsverk is brilliant and I recommend her with all my heart!
Our Mom is 79 years old & came down with Dementia about six months ago. She has been an extremely challenging case for all physicians, caregivers and the family. She's been restless, depressed, sad, has sobbing fits, etc. Dr. Landsverk has been an answer to or prayers. She is a great listener, has a completely open mind and provides tireless support 24/7. Our Mom is in crisis right now and I think we hear from Dr. L. daily--either by email or phone. She's a perfectionist and the most sensitive, caring doctor I have ever known. No medical professional will work as hard for your parents or family. She discovered problems that were completely undiagnosed with our 84 year old Dad and quickly stabilized him and he is now happier and at peace with life in the assisted living facility.
Being a specialist in Alzheimers and dementia I am very grateful for the incredible success that Dr. Landsverk has had with each of the patients and residents we send her way. She has managed the most challenging cases which has consistently helped the person get to a 'better place' so that they can live their life to the fullest. I feel Dr. Landsverk is the best in the field for the entire Northern California and I would not hesitate to recommend her to the families and seniors that need her help.
This Dr.Lanndsverk is fantastic. She did what no other drs could do for my mother. The best part is she comes to you. My mother has dementia and bipolar. For 15 years I have taken her to drs and no one has been able to treat her right for her disorders. She has been kicked out of three different homes. With the help of Dr. Landsverk my mother has a home that is right for her and she is getting the best treatment and is doing better than she ever has before. Great job Dr. Landsverk your the best.
I have recommended and used Dr. Landsverk for a number of patients over the years.Her expertise with difficult dementia patients has been a Godsend to several families, even one whose primary physician had given up. I have never had a problem reaching her--she gives out her cell phone and she has always been extremely responsive to my concerns. I have had patients tell me she can be "too clinical". I guess she needs to be more warm and fuzzy.
Dr. Landsverk has taken care of my 88 year old mom for over a year. My mom became wheelchair bound and we were lucky to find Dr. Landsverk who comes to the house. My mom's medicines were making her extremely agitated, she acted like she had dementia, and because her regular physician had tried everything possible to help her, and nothing was working,she was stuck in a state of confusion and depression. Dr. Landsverk worked on getting her medicines right, a process that the Dr. was diligent in, trying different medicines that eventually turned my mom's condition around. My mom's mind is back to normal, her water retention which she suffered with for years, has gone away, and her medicines are under control. One of the things I like about Dr. Landsverk is she is always available,day and night, to answer any questions or just discuss any concerns we have. Dr. Landsverk also was instrumental in coordinating nurses and support people from Pathways. I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Landsverk promoted herself as a doctor who would oversee all the other doctors for my parents. In reality, she went to my parents' house one time for about an hour, gave them a very superficial "examination", didn't pick up on the fact that my mother was suffering from dementia, then went away, sent a bill for $1600., and we never saw or heard from her again. I would NEVER recommend her to anyone....I feel that she ripped us off and apparently continues to get away with it.
In my opinion this doctor is a hack. I was very, very disappointed with the care she gave a close relative of mine. Her opinions do not at all align with what I felt was appropriate treatment. I would never recommend Dr. Landsverk to anyone in any situation.
The staff changes constantly, however at the present looks like current staff there for about a year. The doctor is never on time, changes appointments with out consideration of the family, dosen't respond to messages in a timely manner, dosen't have her progress notes done in a timely manner, she prides herself in having the right cocktail for dementia clients, well we can tell you that's a guessing game. Lot's of good physicians out there who don't provide house calls. Please do research before using this doctor.
