Lake Charles, LA |
He is a horrible, HORRIBLE doctor who almost got me killed! I have RA, and he had me on heavy doses of Methotrexate, gabapentin, and a couple of other drugs. He ordered regular bloodwork, but he didn't pay attention to the results. I received my records from his office and know this to be true. My liver function tests were going down with each visit, and he did nothing. I almost bled to death from gastric varices. My Houston liver specialist can't believe Dr. Lyman's incompetence.

Strange. The lady at the desk was very very rude. She wanted to charge me $25.00 for an appointment that she changed and did not remind me about! She told me she did not have to remind me and that that was a courtesy and I told her don't worry about sending any lab test out for me because I would be searching for another rheumatologists.

I was able to see the doctor within 48 hours of scheduling an appointment. He was very thorough and concern and very knowledgeable!

Very disengaged! No eye contact! Introvert! Did not explain anything to me. I had to go home and look all of my numbers up on my own. All he wanted to do is put me on meds.

Dr Lyman , listens as well as finds the problem what's going on with you and your body.

We called and had our first appointment within a week. Dr. Lyman listened to my husband's complaints. Instead of being judgmental, he asked lots of questions and had him explain in further detail things that needed expounding. He ordered lots of blood work and an EMG Test with a neurologist. He was very thorough. It was this thoroughness that led to a referral to an immunologist and my husband's diagnosis of a Primary Immune Deficiency. I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Lyman.
