I had my first appt with Dr. Lyons yesterday and I am highly impressed with his bedside manner and thorough assessment of my symptoms. He immediately put me at ease with his genuine kindness and was excellent at asking the right questions! Also worth noting, my appt was at 2:45, I got there 15 minutes early and only waited 10 minutes before being brought back to a room. He is very prompt and professional. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Lyons has managed my Crohn's for a decade now. Always a warm handshake greeting of "Hello, friend", coupled with a compassionate bedside manner. I've never felt rushed by him; he has a true servant's heart, a listening ear and a brilliant approach that seeks long term solutions and considers all consequences of treatment. He is vastly different than all other gastros I was treated by previously. I fully entrust him with my life and joyfully recommend him wholeheartedly.

I have been a patient of Dr. Lyons for over 20 years, all i have is praise for the care, service and great bed side manner, he have always greeted me with a smile a warm hand shake before our questions/answer session starts. He listens to his patients as if they was a family member, give his recommendation for care/medication. I would recommend him to all family/friends. His office staff makes you feel comfortable always (A+) Office always very CLEAN+++++

He never listened to what I was saying. He was simply sitting there looking through me listening for "buzz" words instead of the complete story. My situation has now persisted for weeks and would be eradicated by now had he simply listened in the beginning. I don't think he has a clear grasp of the effects that certain prescriptions have on patients, his approach is nearly robotic and quite frankly I'd be surprised if he's remembered any of his patients' name! This man is void of empathy.
