Dr. Lehner is a spectacular doctor. He has saved my life several times. He's a great doctor. He explains things in ways that you can understand. He spends time with you no matter how long it takes. He makes sure that you get the tests done that you need and that's appropriate for the situation. So yeah, I would definitely recommend him to anybody and I have recommended him to several people. So keep up the good work guys.
