Never, Never !!! would I recommend anyone to her!! This Dr was the most unprofessional, degrading, uncaring Dr, My Mother and I have ever met. She's a disgrace!!!!!! So shocking that this hospital could even let her be employed there! She should be ashamed of herself.

After dr lyness came highly recommend from my pain mgmt and orthopedic dr,I went to my appt with high hopes...the dr was very condescending and her bedside manners were awful. She basically yelled and told me to pick what pain I wanted her help with,was it my back pain or sciatica. when I said both she said,no pick one. I was told she can do nothing to help me and she dosnt know why I was referred to her because she isn't a spine specialist ...I was referee to another dr...worst visit EVER

Dr Lyness spent over 40 minutes with me at our original consultation. She took the time to examine me, show me my MRI in complete detail and then explained my non surgical options. After trying PT, consulting with my family DOC and a neurologist I decided to have the surgery. Again Dr Lyness was wonderful talking with and my wife and I the day of the surgery, then spending much time with my wife after a more complicated than expected surgery on my neck to fuse two levels. She was great!
