Highly recommended. Like another reviewer said, Dr. Lyons had me on the road to recovery in a week. Great listener and highly educated.

I have a rare autoimmune condition that puts me at high risk for a variety of cancers. It is very unlikely that he would ever have had another patient with this condition. Dr Lyons was a good listener who took my concerns seriously, read up on my problem, & did appropriate testing. When my insurance company (which was also not familiar with the condition) declined the recommended CT, he appealed the denial, thereby allowing me to get the CT. He went the extra mile and provided excellent care.

Did not meet my expectations for a physician.
in Richmond,Va |
Dr. Lyons performed a successful biliary stint procedure on my elderly 89 year old Dad. Dr Lyons educated me to get my Dad discharged from a miserable nursing facility and return back to the comforts of his own home. Dr. Lyons took the time to call me (true professionalism) and give me instruction, adding to time with my Dad. Dad was surrounded by the family,friends and caregivers making him have the most compassionate setting possible. Thank you,Thank you. Dr. Lyons. Highly recommend.

I suffered for four months until I finally saw Dr. Lyons. He had me diagnosed and on the road to recovery in less than a week.
