What People Say About Dr. Lawrence Lemak, MD

My experience with Dr. Lemak and his staff leave much to be desired. Surgery was okay, but the followup care was not up to par. His staff was supposed to start the authorization for a get injection to help with pain in my knee...6 months after we started the process I finally received a call that it had been approved. During this time I called his office continually to inquire about the injection only to be told multiple times that they were working on it; as times their answer was very vague. When I received word that it was approved I had already seen another surgeon. According to my insurance the authorization was submitted on 1/17/19 and was approved on 1/21/19. Letter was mailed to Dr. Lemal on 1/22/19...I didn't receive the call untl 6/14/2019!!! Totally unacceptable...this office absolutely dropped the ball with my care!!!! I wouldn't even dare to take my dog to this office!!

I would and have recommended Dr. leMak to anyone who needs a total knee replacement.. I did great after he operated on mine. The Physical therapists were astounded how well I did, and was off my walker and even cane Much sooner than I thought. People still say they can,t believe I walking my dog almost a mile a day, work in my yard, and have traveled to Wyoming twice since the operation in March. Dr. Lemak is so kind and not in a hurry explaining any question you might have. A SUPER Dr.!

He loves to schedule surgeries. Rush in rush out. Discourages getting a second opinion. Very conceited and full of himself. Feels like the assembly line at some automotive plant.

I've been a patient of Dr. Lemak's since he opened his Clinic in Prattville. He is very professional and thorough in diagnosing and treating his patients. I suffered with knee pain for over a year. Dr. Lemak replaced my knee and I have absolutely no pain at all now. Anyone should consider themself fortunate to be treated by Dr. Lemak. 5 Stars!
