The minute I woke up from surgery, the pain in my neck that I had been suffering with for more than 3 years was totally gone. It’s been 3 months and I am doing great.

Dr. Lycette saved my 14 month olds life. He suffered a traumatic brain injury and Dr. Lycette performed brain surgery to relieve bleeding on the brain. He was extremely polite, and explained the procedure to us, and was very calming during a situation that was extremely stressful. We will be forever indebted to him!

Our first experience with Dr. Lycette about 2 years ago (2014), which came from a recommendation from my niece, a Registered Nurse at Muhlenberg Hospital. I asked her for the best in the area, and she recommended Dr. Lycette. He operated on my husband, He is so much better today. He then operated on my son's back, my daughter's neck, a friend's back, and my sister's neck just recently. He is friendly, approachable, kind, and listens. The only complaint, is his staff doesn't answer the phone
