    Dr. Lerner was excellent. I was able to schedule an appointment with him easily. He spent a considerable amount of time in the exam room with me to answer questions and provide information about my condition. He is very knowledgeable and caring. He is 'old school' so he is direct but I liked that about him. He even went out of his way to do research on a particular new drug that I asked him about before giving me his opinion on it. His nurse Angie was great as well. Highly recommend him.

    I had a visit with Dr Lerner for a abscess drain . He was real moody I was asking questions n he wouldn't answer me . He gives you no info on your sickness. 2 weeks after the incision was done I still had the abcess wasnt given no antibiotics or told anything..

    I went for a visit because I have gal bladder stones so I am in pain .. I called the clinic on 3002 N Ashland ave. to see what is the first time consultation fee is I was told $150.00 I was told since I have no insurance I will be seen and that they will fill out paperwork for a charity that helps pay for the surgery.. I was told that I could make payments towards the surgery so I left $300 deposit . Once the Dr. arrived he didnt even see me n wont return my deposit either...
