Don't go to this Doctor. He doesn't really care wants money that's it. he wants to spend the least time with the patient. The office didn't even called to tell the results of my Ultrasound. He is just horrible he doesn't give you time to explain or even talk! Neither he asks you about the problem or if you have question you feel he is mad at you for no reason! again he doesn't care I don't know why is he a doctor!!!!

My daughter saw Dr Lerner today and we were very pleased with the care she received from him at this office visit. ( her first) He listened to our concerns and explained different things that might be causing her problems. He also answered all of the questions that we had for him. I don't understand the poor ratings on here because we were impressed with his friendliness and care. And he is wasting no time in getting her in for more in depth tests tomorrow.
Theodore, AL |
Horrible bedside manor. Fastest consultation ever. Didn't take time to work through an issue I am having or answer questions. Tried to change Doctors within the group and the other Physicians do not accept transfers within the group. How strange is that?
Mobile, AL |
He would probably make a good veterinarian. He talks over his patients. I was scheduled an appt with him by my pcp. Now im stuck with him unless i leave the group. He did a rectal exam..his phone rung, he answered with the gloves on and used his poopy gloved finger to open the door and walk out to continue the conversation. He mumbles and is hard to understand.

Dr.Lerner is probably the tackiest doctor I've ever encountered. He didn't explain anything that was going on with my dad at all and tried to leave the room as quickly as he could. He pretty much just guessed on my dad's condition and that was his final answer. We had two other physicians come in and they actually performed tests on my dad and got straight to the problem and were very thorough. Patients are just a number to Dr.Lerner and I wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy!!!
in Monroeville, AL |
Dr. Lerner talks faster than you can understand him. Dr. Lerner has no personality. Dr. Lerner gives his patients no time to talk. Dr. Lerner does not ask his patients if they have any questions. Dr. Lerner does not explain to his patients what is going on. I stayed in the hospital for a week & saw Dr. Lerner twice, each for less than 5 minutes. Dr. Lerner would not explain to my why I was staying so long in the hospital. Dr. Lerner completely lied to me on two different occasions.
Memphis, TN |
This man does NOT listen to his patients. He speaks a mile a minute, then runs out of the room. If he is not able to diagnose on the first visit, he never bothers to follow up. This man shouldn't be allowed near awake patients.
