Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lyon "I have established my own practice as Pure Health. I am fortunate to share space,equipment, staff, and be in conjunction with Brookside Family Medicine. I will continue to practice Family Medicine and Sports Medicine. I am board certified in both specialties. I have experience treating athletes at the high school, collegiate, and professional levels. I have been caring for Northern Michigan Families since 2009. I enjoy focusing on prevention, nutrition, and increasing activity. Suffering an illness or injury can be traumatic and depressing. I would like to form a treatment plan for you and help put your mind at ease during the healing process. 

Providing health care for entire families is extremely rewarding for me and I am excited to be able to continue to do this at Pure Health. Please call or stop on in and let me know if there is anything I can do to help promote your families health."

Patient Comments (6)

I think she is a smart, intelligent well read compassionate Doctor. No problems with her office staff and quick responses. It is to your advantage to be tech literate as that is the best way to communicate with her and her staff. I have been her patient since 2009 and so glad I found her. She really listens. She is not a pill pusher and trends more toward the holistic side. I am a firm believer in less is more. I hope she stays in practice for a long time.

I am a new patient of Dr. Lyon, and I don't think I could have found a better doctor. She listens and I admire that when there is a health issue she wants to find the root cause of why said health issue is happening. She explains things very well and genuinely cares. I definitely feel as though I am in good hands when I leave versus other doctors I have been to.

Office staff is RUDE! Especially Theresa. They don't relay message to the doctor. Aweful experience with staff. Dr. Lyon is wonderful - if you can get through her staff.
