Both my physician and his staff were professional in their demeanor yet friendly and caring. I appreciate that the doctor advised me that he had a meeting to attend at a specific time, but we were able to cover all my concerns and questions and his regarding my lab results, response to a newly prescribed drug, and general well being.

I have never had a bad experience with Dr. Lynam, that is why I have been going to him for a long time now. For 17 or more years. Dr. Lynam has always been professional and polite and so has the staff that works with him? can't even imagine going to another doctor

there was a huge confusion. I asked for a primary Dr to be provided to me. I have been seeing a young nurse practitioner but wanted and older dr. I was given Dr. Michael Lyman . Once he came in to see me in then explained he was not taking new patients and was cutting his hours so he could not be my Dr. he did order blood work per my request and a chest xray. that was over a week ago. I have not been notified of my results yet was called by pulmonary dept. and an appointment has been made. They informed me there is an issue with my chest xray and that a letter was sent but I still have not received a letter or call from anyone on any lab results. period. I have had a cough for 6 weeks. that's why I made the appt in the first place .It would be nice to be kept informed.

First of all, I came in with a sinus issue and when Dr. Lynam looked in my nose he stood back and extended his arm like he was afraid of catching my cooties, which was a bit offensive. Dr. Lynam spent maybe 5 minutes with me and after he left the room I remembered a concern I wanted to discuss and I asked the nurse if I could talk to him about it. She checked with him and told me I'd have to make another appointment. That was very upsetting as he barely spent 5 minutes with me to begin with. I felt like I wasted my time and money. I'm sad to say, but I've noticed a decline in the care my husband and I have received from Dr. Lynam in the last year. We used to think he was a great doctor. We've experienced this lack of care with a couple of other providers in this clinic, so we're not sure if we want to continue going there. I've had better treatment from a walk-in clinic I had to go to on a weekend.

08/31/2016
It seems to me this Provider is not taking me too seriously as he should, I need to go to another Provider because obviously doesn't trust me to get my prescriptions, he doesn't keep up with the refills but, expect from me to keep taking my medicines, he doesn't communicate too well with Specialists to see the progress of my other health conditions even though I have written all that in my medical report.
