East Hartford, CT |
When I went into the office to receive a cortisone shot Dr. Lynch's first response was "you're fat"! I was taken aback & at a loss for words!
in Clinton, CT |
He replaced both my hips in 2016 I am pain free and wished I had done it sooner! He is absolutely the best Patricia Wilcox
in Madison, CT |
Excellent bedside manner, articulate, took the time to explain and answer my questions.
in New Haven, CT |
Dr. Lynch was outstanding in his ability to explain the reasons for my symptoms, providing options, and outlining the pros and cons of each. He is an excellent listener and also has a good sense of humor. He is down-to-earth. But most importantly, he's an outstanding surgeon.
in Ansonia, CT |
Dr. Lynch has very poor bedside manner. I went for one appointment and will never go back. He was rude and tactless.
