Dr. Lemon is patient-centered and collaborative. He demonstrates compassion for his patients, and never "talks down" to them. Skilled oncologist. I transferred to him after having an adverse experience with another oncologist and couldn't be happier!

Dr. Lemon is a very kind man that takes the time to know his patients. He has always kept me informed of what type of treatment he recommended and took the time to explain the path of treatment I would need. Going to see him is always a positive experience. Dr. Lemon is more like the doctors in a small town than in a large clinic.
