I've been Dr. Lyons' patient for about 5 years. He's extremely experienced and knows his stuff, always right on with a diagnosis and next steps. Smart guy who knows how to cut to the chase and address the problem. Always helped me.

Dr. Lyons did an IME. He was pleasant. He reviewed CD and written reports. Dr. Lyons wrote his own report detail for the insurance company. The office staff was pleasant. The office was clean. The wait was acceptable. The insurance company respected the doctor. He was professional to deal with.

Referred to by my family doctor. Went today for first time. Office staff very fun to be around and helpful. It was a happy atmosphere. Needed an x-ray which was done at their location....no waiting for a disc to deliver. Dr. Lyons could not have been nicer and "fixed" by bad knee. Talked about his love of horses and various sporting events for the horses.....a lot in common. Had trouble locating the office with my GPS but a call to his office got me back on the right track. Great Day!

Dr. Lyons did a left Shoulder replacement for me, I got FULL Range and FULL use of my left shoulder. After that I fractured my right Hip he saw me on a Monday and X-Rays showed NO break, He being the Knowledge Surgeon that he is had scheduled me for surgery that Thursday without my knowledge and sent me for an MRI, that came back showing a hairline fracture of my right that he corrected the Thursday of that week with 3 screws. I would recommend him HIGHLY.

He is everything that is wrong with medicine today. Arrogant, uncaring, condescending, and apparently not very knowledgeable in the field he is supposedly an expert in. Appointment lasted all of two minutes and was a complete waste of time. He wont be getting paid for the botched job he did, or didn't do, as it were. Save yourself the aggravation. Go to a better Dr. He's an absolute disgrace.

Surgery and post care was excellent! I had hip replacement surgery and am doing great for over three years after surgery.

The doctor told me that a broken finger is drama (quote) and he told my husband when he asked him if it was normal after 2 wks for my hand and finger to be in so much pain still.... "it is not like she got hit on the head with an axe or something". Really professional communication skills and great bedside manner. Will NEVER let him make money of of me again or subject myself to such a lack of compassion or professionalism.
