Starting at the beginning, the reception staff is friendly and professional. They never overbook and wait times are minimal. The PAs are, likewise, friendly and professional. But also knowledgeable and caring. Friendly & professional is a recurring theme when I think of Dr. Lynch's practice, and applies in spades to the doctor himself. He listened to my concerns and explained what needed explaining in a clear, non-condescending manner. Of course none of this would have mattered were he not the highly skilled and experienced surgeon that he is. My bi-lateral, total knee replacement went smoother than I could have ever imagined. There was minimal pain for this kind of procedure and I took a total of 2 oxycodone pills over the course of recovery and rehabilitation for both knees. I was up and walking (with a walker) the day after surgery. In both cases I traded the walker for a cane within 2 weeks, and the cane was gone within two months. I cannot recommend Dr. Lynch highly enough!

Dr. Michael Lynch specializes in orthopedic surgery, sports medicine, pediatric orthopedics, knee/shoulder surgery, total joint replacement. I find him highly approachable, sensitive to his patients' concerns, and most informative as to his analyses, recommendations, and thoughts. For six consecutive years, he has been named one of Connecticut Magazine's 'Top Docs' and one of the finest orthopedic surgeons in the area. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone seeking orthopedic care.

Dr. Lynch performed a partial knee replacement on my right knee after a serious leg injury three years earlier. He was extremely knowledgeable, patient and caring with me. He spent a lot of time with alternative treatments before we agreed to go ahead with the joint replacement. It was estimated my partial replacement would last from one to ten years; it's almost 14 years later and it's still intact and working well. Dr. Lynch is an excellent doctor who gave me back my ability to walk.

The worst doctor ever. Took our child based on our pediatricians recommendation. He barely spent 15 seconds before rushing out. Waste of time and money. Please stay away.

I found him to be very dismissive and arrogant . Very hostile if the patient is seeking information and has questions and reasonable concerns. I would definitely not recommend him at all. I felt extremely uncomfortable with him and couldn't wait to get out of his office.
