He seemed knowledgeable, but was dismissive and downgrading of my condition from the beginning. It must be easy for him think I'm exaggerating the pain when he will never have to experience it for himself. I will definitely not be back to see him.

He could work on his bedside just a touch, and be more patient while patients ask questions but, great physician! Dr Lenihan performed a hysterectomy on me. He's seemingly very busy (as is the whole office) so I had previously established care with an ARNP in the office. She is wonderful and prompt with test results. Don't be afraid to use that for an option of necessary for routine check ups.
