Dr. Lynch is a sad excuse for a doctor. Without taking an ultrasound he hacked into my breast leaving me unable to breast feed and traumatized. After seeing him I knew I had been treated poorly so I was able to get in with a fantastic breast surgeon who was horrified with the misdiagnosis and wrong procedure he haphazardly performed as well as the after care. If I could I would sue him for medical malpractice. He is a sloppy hack of a doctor who should have his ability to practice medicine revoked. DO NOT ALLOW HIM TO OPERATE OF YOU OR A LOVED ONEz

I went to see Dr. Lynch after being in the ER and getting an ultrasound for abdominal pain. Without doing any further tests or even physically examining me, he told me to come in the next morning to have my gallbladder removed. Both of my parents are doctors and this alarmed them greatly so they told me to get another opinion before getting this surgery. I went to another doctor for a second opinion and there was nothing wrong with my gallbladder. Dr. Lynch would have removed it for no reason!!!

He's a horrible man and surgeon. To think he has all those awards and even blinds his peers by lying on the point that he cares about his patients and seeks relationship. I'm still on antibiotics...3 months after he's butchered my knees! Still havent seen or heard from him since the day of the operation. He didn't have the guts to even face me and explain why he butchered me so. I will never look or feel the same again. I probably will never wear a beautiful dress or some shorts. Never

Dr. Lynch is such a wonderful doctor, with a heart of gold. Very knowledgeable, professional, really knows what he is doing! Trusted Dr. Lynch with my kids infections, with my husband's emergent appendectomy surgery, as well as my own needs. He always did a wonderful job, and none of us had any complications afterwards. Definitely recommend, and will be coming back if need be (hopefully there'll be no need though :))

I found Dr. Lynch to have a pleasant personality and, he listens to you. If, you feel rushed I think it's more that he is the type that is always on the move, not that he's rushing you. His credentials are excellent and, I trust him. I did not give 5 stars for one reason and that is his office staff. The office staff is indifferent and can be snippy especially the girl at the front desk. If, I did not use Dr. Lynch again, they would be the reason.
