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.

Dr. Lynch has very poor bedside manner. I went for one appointment and will never go back. He was rude and tactless.
