Doctor is genuinely concerned about his patients. He is not in a hurry to prescribe medications or major surgery if other viable options are available to pursue, which is a good thing!

I have been going to Dr. Lynam for around 18 years I think. I have never stayed with a family doctor that long ever. he is real good with listening to me and explaining things to me. I have real bad chronic pain and I see him around every 3 months for rechecks he is so good at me getting my blood test done from all the medication I have been on. I have listened to several of my friends complain about how the doctor they have doesn't listen to them or care about anything that's going on. and all I think about is how lucky I am to have such a great doctor that cares about his patients.

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.
