Doctor Lehman and his team is extremely thoughtful and caring. From his office staff Jivana, who has been so accommodating to squeezing me into Dr Lehman's schedule to his clinic team, Christina, Joy, and Derrick, who were so patient with all my questions and concerns. Most of all Dr Lehman is the most caring surgeon I've met. I've seen several other surgeon for opinion before finally finding him and I have to say he is on a whole different level. I felt so comfortable speaking to him and he was really clear with explaining to me what my issues were and what surgical and non-surgical routes I can take. Most importantly he made me feel I was in control and made sure the decision to proceed with surgery was mutual. I've never been better since the surgery and I really cant express how truly thankful it is to be under his care.

Dr. Lehman was great, he made me feel very confident and fearful of doing surgery on my spine. him and his team were exceptional. My procedure was a success and worry free. Thanks to Dr. Lehman I am no longer in pain. He was very nice and professional through the entire process. i really got the best care under Dr. Lehman.

After visiting many doctors I found my way to Dr. Lehman. After an initial consultation and follow up I felt that Dr. Lehman explained what was happening with my back, was very empathetic of my situation and how he could help me. I moved forward with a TLIF of levels L4/L5 L5/S1 in February 2019. Fast forward to Feb 2020 and I feel 25 years younger and back to normal activities. Dr. Lehman and his team are incredible. Everything from pre surgery to post and in between was handled with care and understanding and the results speak for themself! I highly recommend Dr Lehman and his team.

Never would I have ever wish to have spine surgery, but I'm so glad to be under Dr. Lehman's care. The anxiety, panic and questions were overwhelming. I cannot thank Dr. Lehman and his team enough for how well they took care of me. My surgery was beyond my expectation. I woke up from and the leg and back pain that was plaguing me for the last year was completely gone. I still have a little numbness, but that infinitely better than how it was before my surgery. I can begin to tell you have great it feels to be able to go outside without having to carry around a bottle of pain killers. Thank you so much Dr. Lehman and team!!!!!

Dr. Lehman and his team: NP Tarren, Nurse Christine and the rest of this team, were very competent and caring. They cared for my teenage son who was suffering from severely herniated due to a wrestling injury. We recommend this surgeon 100%.

I had surgery with Dr. Lehman 3 years ago to correct my scoliosis. Looking back I wish I saw Dr. Lehman earlier. Before my surgery I had so much low back pain and the sciatic pain down my legs was unbearable. I had tried everything from physical therapy to injections, nothing worked. His surgery really helped me so much. The leg and back pain is gone and my posture is so much better. I really have to thank him and his team for taking care of me. He came by to see me everyday and night, and his nurses were extremely helpful. 10 out of 10 would recommend Dr. Lehman.

Dr. Lehman is really amazing! I found Dr. Lehman through my neighbor who Dr. Lehman did surgery on his back with amazing result. I had so much back pain that I couldn't go anywhere or do anything. I was miserable. I can't believe the result from my fusion surgery on my back. Completely pain free now and able to do everything that I wanted to do before. I am so thankful of Dr. Lehman and his team. They took care of me every step of the way, from before to after the surgery, I always felt like I had someone guiding me. I highly recommend Dr. Lehman.

I can honestly say Dr. Lehman changed my whole life. I could barely walk, I was in so much pain. And now I have been pain-free for over a year. Dr. Lehman was kind and explained everything very thoroughly; I always felt like I was in very good hands with him. And when there was a post-surgical complication, he went the extra mile, coming back (I think) from vacation to perform a second surgery. I can't recommend him and his staff enough.

My experience with Dr. Lehman has been really great. The support of his team has been extremely helpful for me throughout my journey. When you’re experiencing chronic pain the isolation of it all can be very challenging. Having this group of experts as a panel for support has instramental with my recovery.

I had a very bad herniated disk that popped out and then went up behind the vertibrea pushing hard on my spinal cord.a I had been to several doctors before Dr. Lehman and they all agreed I needed surgery including a laminectomy and fusion, but Dr. Lehman felt I needed a much more basic surgery, only a decompression and diskectomy. Dr. Lehman performed the surgery on April 2, 2019. I entered the hospital hobbling on a cane, and the very same day I walked out holding my cane over my head in triumph. Three months later I was doing everything normally, running and doing weights at the guy. By the way, I'm 60 years old and they say it takes older people longer to heal but I thought I did just fine. By 4 months after the surgery, I had absolutely no signs or symptoms that I ever had the back injury or surgery. Dr. Lehman is a ROCK STAR SUPER HERO!! I would strongly recommend him to anyone and everyone with a back injury. Note he only sees people who need surgery.

All of my experiences with Dr. Lehman have exceeded any expectations! I was truly impressed with his ability to properly set and manage expectations. His skill and bedside manner in the OR and during the post-operative phase were exceptionally well. Not only would I recommend Dr. Lehman but already have through various support groups on social media.

Very professional and good care. Spine Hospital (Allen) offered great accommodation incl. spouse. Dr Lehman performed C5/C7 ACDF surgery with subsequent pain relief in shoulder/neck entirely. Quick recovery period with minor side-effects (swallowing). Great staff.

Ever since he treated me my quality of life has improved drastically, I am able to do everything that I could ever want to now. I would highly recommend Dr. Lehman to anyone who is looking for a physician who truly cares about their wellbeing and quality of life!
