Dr. Lindsey was great! I didn't feel rushed, as is so often the case with doctors. He communicated with me as a fellow educated person rather than being condescending. He listened to and answered all my questions thoroughly, and he was warm and friendly having a great bedside manner. I couldn't ask for more.

Dr. Lindsay is extremely knowledgeable and comforting. I was hesitant to do a video visit, but was so pleased. Same unhurried, inquisitive and sensitive care. Saved me having to go to hospital office. And right now, that’s a real bonus. Highly recommend Dr. Lindsay.

Dr. Lindsay has been treating me for almost a year. As always, he listens very well. Ask pertinent questions and offers options and a diagnosis that is easily understandable. All with a professional but warm and upbeat demeanor. I could not be happier or more confident being in Dr Lindsay’s expert care.
