Dr. Lyons' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lyons "Dr. Lyons grew up along the Coast in Biloxi MS. When he is not engaged in his passion of "Medical Detective" work in identifying and effectively managing painful and debilitating conditions, he enjoys visiting extended family along the MS Coast. Often he can be found returning to those "secret fishing holes" shared during his youth with his father, searching out speckled trout and redfish. He and his wife enjoy hiking out West in the mountains of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. When not hiking, he enjoys fly fishing for trout in the over 2,000 miles of prime trout streams in Montana and Wyoming. Dr. Lyons continues to serve as a Senior second-level Reviewer for Pain Medicine, chosen by the State of Mississippi Workers' Compensation Commission. He is admired for his balanced, honest, and up-to-date analysis and recommendations for diagnosis and appropriate treatment. All of his patients, irrespective of insurance coverage, receive care via the principles of Evidence-Based Medicine and Best Medical Practices. When not working, hiking with his wife, spending time with their Assistant District Attorney daughter in Brooklyn or PhD candidate son at U of GA in Athens GA, Dr. Lyons also enjoys cycling the many bike trails in Rankin and Madison counties to maintain his physical stamina and remain an example of "good health" for his patients, clinical/surgical staff, and physician colleagues."
