Great experience. Friendly staff throughout. I had both wrists (4 weeks apart) carpal tunnel release. The surgeries went well, healing went well, I will tell anyone who needs this procedure done that Dr. Lemek is the guy to see.

I had my 1st and last appointment with Dr. Lemek. He was short didn't seem he wanted to be there was my impression. He did not hear my concerns. I had a minor fracture which did not require surgery. However my foot is still very swollen and bruised. I asked for a doctor's note for my work as I stand for 7.5 hours a day. He bluntly said no as the injury did not happened at work, but I was not to stand much on it. Not sure how that is supposed to help or work. As I can't stand or bare weight on my foot, but yet he doesn't want to give me a work note . Needless to say. I will not go back to this doctor.

He rushes you through the appointment, does not take time to listen to your concerns, doesn't return phone calls and will leave you in pain.

Every visit with the exception of the 1st visit. Lemek didn't exam and my shoulder very well I felt he did not listen to me. I didn't trust the way he was rushing me through the office visit. I trusted his nurse Candy but she couldn't do anything for the pain. I even expressed my feelings with the receptionist. After Doctor lemic Release Me I was still feeling pain I had another MRI with my primary Dr. I have a small tear. I will NOT go back to this Dr. I will NOT recommend this office.
