Really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Littlejohn. He was very knowledgeable and gave a detailed explanation of the questions I had. The only little hiccup i had was the long wait before being led to the patient examination room. I had arrived on time for my 11:30 appt but was not even given the paperwork to fill out until almost 12:00 and taken to the back around 12:10.

Very unprofessional right off the bat. The first sentence uttered out if his mouth as he entered the room was very offensive and sexist. I do not recommend I super disappointed that Zicdoc rates him so high. I should have googled for other reviews.

The woman at the front desk and doctor both seemed disorganized and scatterbrained - both didn't know ahead of time that I was a new patient. I had rescheduled my initial appointment the week before which I guess was a confusing move. Staff member asked me specifics about my psychiatric RXs right in the waiting room, with another patient sitting 2 seats away...personal and irrelevant? Yeap. The previous week when I confirmed the appt on the phone, I asked the representative if I needed to arrive early to fill out forms - she said no, that they had the info from zoc doc and didn't need an intake. But then I did in fact have a butt load of forms to fill out.. the woman at the front desk kept running over to me saying 'oh actually this one too.' Whatever, we all have those days, I get it. What threw me was once I finally saw the doctor, he went on tangents and had this strange sassy attitude. He answered my first question in a slow, condescending voice. He had a nervous oblivious type energy- the type of person you don't want to be poking equipment around your face. He also had a way of talking about people and conditions as if they belonged to strict categories.. i.e. everyone with this condition is always like this ... some actual quotes for you: 'adderall is methamphetamine' false... 'frats in college got banned because they kept raping people and doing stuff like that that frats do.' Um what, I wasn't in one but hey what if I was...also I didn't ask about your college experience man so I don't know why you've been talking about it for the past ten minutes. While the appt seems done & I'm waiting to pee, the rambles continue. Overall I'd say this man is incompetent, self-oriented and totally off in terms of common social sense. I for real don't know what planet he was on, but I think you don't want to go there

Dr. Littlejohn is a pleasant, professional doctor who engages not only on a medical level, but also on a personal level. We recently had to switch to his practice because our former doctor changed practices, and it's been a very positive experience. Thank you, Dr. Littlejohn!

I didn't have to wait very long in the lobby but after the nurse took my vitals I had to wait quite a while in the room while the doctor finished with his previous patient. It's what I expect, which is unfortunate, but at least there was an interesting NatGeo magazine that I could pass the time with. Otherwise, I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Littlejohn and I'll be seeing him again next week for a follow-up.

Dr. Littlejohn was great. He took the time to talk to me, understand my past medical history, and what I am looking for in not only a primary care physician, but the personal goals I was setting for myself. I am extremely happy ZocDoc connected me with his practice. He will be my primary care physician going forward!
