I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Lemley, and have recommended him to two people already. He tells you what he thinks about your situation, listens to what you have to say, and together, come up with a plan that's best for the patient. He talked me through what was gonna happen with my surgery during my office appointment, and the day of my surgery, talked with my husband and I about it again. Dr. Lemley and I had a small issue at once,but worked through it! He's great, Thank You

He always took the time to address all my concerns, answer the many questions I asked, explained exactly what the procedure would involve and what I could reasonably expect in terms of the level of healing I could expect. I am extremely satisfied with the results of the surgery Dr. Lemley performed on my index finger.

Dr Alan Lemley is one of my favorite doctors. He understands my problems and then offers different courses of treatment along with his recommendation. His corrective action has helped me so much.

Dr. Lemley is a very good communicator, and can explain the situation and his treatment plan in clear language. He did seem a bit rushed. It's a busy office.
