    Dr. Lehr performed my father's hernia surgery at West Boca Medical Center. He was so warm and genuine putting my Dad and my entire family at ease. The surgery was a complete success and my Dad is home after 5 days post surgery. A+ for Dr. Lehr!

    Dr. Lehr is an excellent Doctor. Unfortunately, his medical assistant does not return any of my calls.

    Dr. Lehr was patient, thorough and informative. He did not rush me to make a decision for surgery. He was very good during the pre and post op and hospital stay. The office staff was great - professional, timely and helpful.

    I would recommend Dr. Lear based on his expert care. I have had two hernia operations done by him, one recently and another 16 years ago. Both procedures went every well. He and his staff are freindly and helpful.

    Dr. Lehr successfully performed a hernia surgery for me. He was interested in all my medical background during the initial consult. On operating day, he was very attentive to not only myself, but he also visited my wife after surgery and discretely provided an update. He provided two post-surgery sessions to ensure my recovery was a success.

    I had an unexpected health issue come up which sent me to the emergency room. Dr Lehr came in to see me. He then made the time to see me at his office and guide me through surgery procedure. We have been extremely happy with everything. He takes the time to explain things and is very friendly and helpful. His assistant is also very nice. He is a great 5 star doctor who really cares . Highly recommended!!!

    Dr. Gary Lehr and his staff were amazing! From the minute I walked through the doors I was greeted with a smile and was assisted with any questions I had. As for Dr. Lehr himself, he was easy to talk to, answered all of my questions, and addressed all of my concerns in a way that was easy to understand.

    I was fortunate to have Dr. Lehr treat me for an emergency Appendectomy. I was obviously not expecting to be in the circumstance I was in but Dr.Lehr did an excellent job of explaining Appendicitis and what to expect after the surgery. This made me feel a lot more comfortable and at ease with my situation. I am very thankful for the caring, honest and prompt treatment I received from him.
