I have been in treatment for RA with Dr. Lynn since 1997 (23 yrs). She is a very observing physician and points out what I myself might have overlooked. She takes the time to make sure, I, as a patient understand all relevant issues. As another reviewer pointed out, I concur, I look forward to my visits.

Dr. Lynn does know her her diseases and treatments. When she was suggesting my beginning treatments she gave me a list, suggested I look them up to check them out and go over them with my primary. I have had meds pulled on the recommendation of an eye doctor, also upon my request. She did not quibble, just started working on the next step of treatments. Dr. Lynn feels like she is very important part of everything going on and wants to know and will request reports from the most minor of situations. There is virtually no wait time to see her, a whole visit can last less than 30 minutes. She really is a bit strange however and there is no time for questions, unless of course there are problems that only she needs to handle. During a visit (every 3 months)she will have general conversations but when she’s done - she is done, picks up her computer and walks out, even if you are talking. “Remember to stop by the lab.“ One must MUST have a good primary and not rely on just Dr. Lynn.

For around twenty years Dr. Lynn treated my wife Linda for rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Not only is Dr. Lynn really good at doctoring but she has a delightful personality and was always a joy for us to visit. She's the only doctor in our whole lives that we looked forward to seeing.

Very thorough doctor. However,dr would not talk to us on the phone. Would not return our phone call. Had to make an appointment to see her again. Then she acted disgusted that we came in to see her. But we still had more questions that needed answers.

I think she is a good doctor, if she would stop trying to impress and get down to doctoring. I don't want to talk about politics, religion, hunting, etc. I want to talk about me and my health issues. If you want a one on one doctor who will look you in the face and tell you what is going on in your body, you need to find another one.

I have been using Dr. Lynn since April of 2001. Her treatment of my rheumatoid arthritis is the reason I am doing so well today. Without her expertise I'm pretty sure I wouldn't even be able to walk today. I am 43 years old and thankfully I am still teaching 5th graders thanks to Dr. Lynn's great care.
