Patient Comments (66)
in Memphis, TN |
It's a holiday. I never expected to reach Dr. Lochemes. I figured I'd reach some answering service that may or may not be able to Help me. However, I called the office number and reach the doctor. He patiently explained what was going on and why I was having the symptoms that I was. He then talked me through the treatment that I needed in order to make the burning in my wrist stop. I thought I was going to have to spend hours at the hospital. Instead I am now enjoying the rest of the holiday.

I have trusted Dr. Lochemes for multiple issues and the results have all been the same. Excellent. From surgeries to minor joint issues he always takes time to listen, learn, and evaluate.
