Dr Lambert has great bedside manners and genuinely love what he does. He try everything to help a pt avoid surgery. But on the other hand if it's needed he explains step by step. A very reassuring Dr.

In Sept of 2017 Dr Lambert put two 4 by 6 inch pieces of mesh( you don't need that much) inside my abdominal cavity when I complained of the hernia issue on the right but he put mesh on the right and left--the left mesh attached to my sigmoid colon and perforated it in addition to adhering to the upper abdominal cavity--I have now had a 2 failed bowel resection originating from the mesh creating scar tissue on the left side. I turned him over to law firms but they rejected the case as there was nothing obvious other the pain I was in for 8-10 months. No though, his blatant error is costing my life. Dr Lambert butchered me and if I survive from the reconnection of the bag, I'm going to sue him for everything he has. Oh, he collects double monied as his wife helps him

Dr. Lambert is great! Very knowledgeable and professional. His entire staff was super sweet and made me feel so much more comfortable. I thought I had a very severe skin condition, but Dr. Lambert quickly put my mind at ease and accurately diagnosed me with something else. He did the necessary procedure the same day and was kind and comforting while explaining everything he was doing. I am so thankful he was familiar with what I had. I have a follow up appointment this week and I can’t wait to show him the results and how great it looks! I would highly recommend Dr. Lambert and his entire staff!

Dr. David Lambert has been my surgeon since 2014, when he biopsies my lymphoma. He is kind, carding and very professional. Any medical institution would be made better by having him in their employment. The receptionists who work with him do so as a team and I’ve never heard a negative thing about him from them. In fact, I’ve never heard anything negative about him. He and his staff are credits to their profession. I recommend Dr Lambert to anyone who needs his services. A true surgeon who takes his work as well as his patients with unyielding care. A rare profession in these times. If you think this over commends him you would be sadly mistaken.

Had healing complications from a major surgery stemming from an emergency trip I had to take. Dr. Lambert operated and I'm glad to say I'm healing nicely after multiple hernia repairs. He and the staff are top notch!

After two failed surgeries for pilonidal disease in my home state of Arkansas, I decided to give this guy a try after seeing he performed a different type of surgery that no one else did locally. This guy helped me get my life back, incredible doctor. 5/5!

Dr. Lambert provided outstanding care for me. He explained my need for surgery clearly and helped me understand the details of the surgery in a way I could understand. His description of the recovery process was spot on as well. I found him personally very engaging and easy to connect with. He never seemed to be in a hurry but took time answering all of my questions. His office staff is outstanding. They were easily accessible, friendly and caring. It was probably the best experience I've had with an office staff. They were almost always reachable and available by phone but on the occasions they were not they returned my call promptly. 5 stars+ experience. I hope I don't need Dr. Lambert's services again, but if I do require surgery in the future, he is my go to surgeon.
