Dr Lemley to me was a very compassionate person, in regards, to my surgery and the potential of how the surgery of my cubital tunnel nerve damage in my left. The correction surgery performed has corrected some, but a different doctor dud not perform surgery as Dr. Kelley did to some degree of success and I am very pleased with SOS ortho and my physician Dr. Alan Lemley.

Dr. Lemley and staff we're by far the best team. I needed surgery and two days later they got me in. They made the whole pre and post surgery a good experience, almost to the point you almost forget what your there for. Very catering and professional. Would highly recommend!

I travel 80+ miles one way to do my business with SOS and the doctors here and I would not change for anything. I see Dr Lemley for hand issues, his brother for feet issues and other doctors in the group for back and shoulder issues and they have all helped me tremendously. So, I highly recommend this group to anyone who is having issues and is getting no help elsewhere. Greatly worth the 160 mile round trip drive. THANK YOU SOS FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.

He took the time to explain things to me in a way that wasn’t dumbed down but also in plain English! Aligned with me on a personal level and made me feel comfortable with next steps in my treatment plan.
