Worst bedside manor ive ever experienced saw him and will never return. 2hr wait was pressuring me to do a procedure without explaining in depth what could occur just said bluntly could cause stroke,heart attack, death. Not giving enough time or consideration to me, condescending, arrogant, out right rude trying to make me make a spur of the moment decision and angry about it. As I promptly left I explained to the front desk and they literally said its a common occurrence despicable behavior. .

My husband was admitted to CCU at Wesley Medical Center for cardiology related issues. Dr Lemlik wanted to do a heart cath but did not consider options such as providing kidney protecting medications that might have kept My husband from kidney failure and lifetime dialysis. DR Lemlik became angry with my husband and walked out when my husband refused the cath. Dismissed him straight out of the hospital with no coordination with our PCP. A week later my husband died.

Very bad bedside manners. I had reactions to the first medication he put me on, so when suggesting a second but similar medication & I had questions, he got very upset with me, & stormed out of the room even. I was in tears & tried to apologize & explain I wasnt doubting his knowledge but instead was trying to be educated myself before committing to another treatment plan. He didn't accept & again walked off hasty. Will never return. Even reported incident to insurance co.
