    How was your appointment with Dr. Lyons?

    Feb 15, 2019
    Dr Lyons have been wonderful. I suffer from ulcerative colitis which is very difficult to treat since no two patients respond the same. I know many people who suffer from UC and their GI treats it like a minor inconvenience. Dr Lyons understands how much this disease affects patients, how life changing it is and how frustrating it can be to find the right treatment. Anytime I have a setback he's there to find another treatment or remind me that I have to be patient with myself.
