Very happy with experience and care provided by Dr. Lemen. Despite long wait time, he did not seem rushed in our visit and was patient and thoughtful in answering questions and addressing any concerns. Very happy with my choice to see Dr. Lemen for my first pregnancy.
Thank you to Dr. Paul Lemen for helping me bring my beautiful daughter into this world. He will always hold a special place in my heart.
Dr. Paul Lemen went above and beyond my expectations on both visits. I immediately felt at ease within minutes. He took an incredible amount of time addressing my questions and concerns well above what is expected of doctors. Even when running late, he never felt rushed, or made me feel rushed in the appointment. His bedside manner is greatly appreciated – it goes a long way and makes for a great foundation of patient care.
