Dr. Lyons is as wonderful a person as he is as a doctor! When he says that he wants you to have the BEST life possible, he truly means it. Not only does he listen wholeheartedly to his patients, he makes sure that they understand what he is going to do to help them. He is the most caring and compassionate doctor that I have ever met! He truly is and has been a blessing to my life! He has made my quality of life so much better by making the decision to do three much needed surgeries on me over the years. I can never thank him enough for being the best doctor that he possibly could be! I would rate him and his staff a 10+!

What a fine gentleman Makes you feel comfortable and try’s informing you on what’s going on without talking down too you! If you been diagnosed with a problem! He’s should be your first consideration for a second opinion and the only one you want working on the most personal part of your body Not only does he care about your gynecology problem he makes sure you whole well being is cared for.He doesn’t miss anything in your exam, this Man is very through! You might have too wait for awhile for your first appointment but if you’re really serious about getting the best it’s worth the wait after all your health is the most important thing or you wouldn’t be reading this review. Oh and by the way I wasn’t the patient but I was the observer and the patient was and is the most important person in my live “my partner” so the outcome is very important She’s my whole world what I live for. P.S I’ve been disabled from a car accident for 24yrs have seenmy share of Dr’s and was married to a Nurse

His bedside manner is nice, but his support staff in the front office and on the phone is terrible. Was in the parking garage looking for a space and when finally found one was few minutes late. Called and said where I was but put me on hold to take another call and then was told I had to reschedule. This was after me having to call them to remind them to call in a prescription. Twice. Hope I never become that important that staff treats clients that way.

Extremely well bed-side manner shown from the entire staff. Dr. Lyons & his team are very determined to help. After 2 years of emergency room visits EVERY MONTH, being turned away & told that nothing was wrong with me, I was finally referred to Dr Lyons. From the very beginning they took the time to actually listen to what I was going through & the amount of pain I was dealing with. I was diagnosed with endometriosis and they took care of all of it. I am finally pelvic pain free!

Dr. Lyons is one of the best doctors I have ever used. He is extremely kind, considerate, and informative. He puts his patients at ease the moment he walks into the room with his wonderful bed-side manner. He treats his patients with great respect, taking all the time needed to assure them of his ability to help them in the best way he can. Staff members are always friendly and help beyond the "call of duty". Anyone NOT using these talented people is loosing the great care they deserve.

Dr Lyons has been my OB doctor since I was pregnant with my first son 16 years ago. He has helped me with female issues that resulted in surgeries and always has a kind word to make you feel at ease during visits and procedures. He cares about his patients and staff. His staff is amazing also. I can't say enough good things about this Dr. He is amazing at his job in so many ways.

After reading a medical study online from Harvard University I suspected that Dr. Lyons had me undergo two D&Cs that were unnecessary. I sought a second opinion from a gynecologist in Elkhart, who had just come from a conference at Harvard on that subject. He agreed with me. I no longer go to Dr. Lyon.

I have severe endometriosis. Dr. Lyons did an excellent job of handling this disease on my bowels, ovaries and all over inside of abdominal area. I've had many other surgeries for this but not as extensive. He handled everything and got my embedded ovaries and multiple cysts out. I would highly recommend him. He is very skilled. He told me it was very bad inside me. Glad he could handle the job as well as he did. Thank you Dr. Lyons for giving me my life back!!!!!

I had a failed NovaSure Endometrial Ablation & PATSS. I now believe I shouldn't have had an ablation based on my preconditions of PCOS, 3 c-sections, & tubal ligation. I lived with increasing pain for several years. After a hysteroscopy & laparoscopy revealed my cervix was adhered to my bladder I knew I needed a skilled surgeon. I searched for several opinions & chose Dr. Lyons to perform a Da Vinci assisted total laparoscopic hysterectomy & a bilateral salpingectomy. He saved my bladder!

I live in Warsaw & sought out Dr Lyons after having bad luck finding a good doctor here. Friends recommended him. From my very first time seeing him I could tell he genuinely cared. Fast forward. I had a hysterectomy. I had a lot of scar tissue from previous surgeries so he went in on the other side. A lot of scar tissue there too. My surgery became much more complicated cuz my bowel was punctured. He knew right away what to do & fixed it & still finished my surgery. I have him & his staff thank

Long wait times, a wrong prescription was called in, another was never called in, follow-up was poor. Office management was rude when responding to concerns. I had a surgery scheduled, but after the rude treatment I cancelled. How can you trust a physician's office after that.

Dr Lyons is amazing. You can absolutely tell that he really cares and really knows his stuff. He took time to answer all my questions and to help me make informed decisions at every step. I've had issues for years. Dr Lyons was able to diagnose and treat me quickly and I feel better than I have in 3+ years!

I would highly recommend Dr. Lyons. He and his staff are very caring and compassionate. I am three weeks out from a hysterectomy and only regret is I didn’t schedule surgery sooner.

I highly recommend Dr. Lyons for anyone having a prolapse of the bladder or vagina. He did a wonderful repair for me. He performed a rather extensive surgery for me several weeks ago and the repair is amazing. I had no pain after surgery, though he did prescribe pain medication I did not have to fill the prescription. He is a very cariing and kind man. His staff is also very nice and it was an overall wonderful experience.

Dr. Lyons is a kind and thoughtful doctor who saw me on one of my most painful visits to the doctor and made me feel comfortable knowing I was going to be alright. He is an excellent doctor and an excellent person.
