28/06/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Lemley was excellent with explaining every thing to me and my wife concerning cataract surgery. His surgical staff was excellent with pre and post op procedures. Dr. Lemley took the time himself to call me at home to make sure I was ok.

10/06/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Lemley is a skilled surgeon with wonderful bedside manner. I was well prepared by Dr. Lemley and his staff for my LASIK surgery. The surgery itself was not intimidating, and Dr. Lemley calmly explained each step of the procedure, keeping my mind at ease. Dr. Lemley himself called me later that evening to check on how I was recovering at home. The next morning at my postop visit, my vision was already corrected to 20/15. I have had no complications from surgery, and am so very happy that I chose Dr. Lemley for this procedure.  Respond

14/01/14 4 1 1 3 Dr. Lemley was arrogant concerning his knowledge and rather pushy with testing a referrals after an acute condition turned out to be nothing. He has little regard for the people that make his work possible. He referred to x-ray techs as "like cashiers in a grocery store." I waited over an hour to see him and he seemed annoyed when he entered the room. Take your hard earned money elsewhere. REA are hounds to suck every last penny from you with frugal testing and referrals. He has an authoritarian style of treatment that made me uncomfortable and perceived that he also regards patients like me as unintelligent.

21/04/13 5 5 5 5 After seeing many Opthalmologists following an adverse response to cataract surgery in 2011, including specialists at Johns Hopkins, I can highly recommend Dr. Lemley as an exceptional doctor, surgeon and person. He listens to concerns and questions offering professional, knowledgeable answers in a compassionate manner. Acknowledging that the damage was beyond his expertise, he referred me to specialists but his care did not end with the referral. He has personally coordinated my care, reviewed the findings, discussed the options and offer his professional opinion allowing me to make truly educated and informed decisions. When he did the cataract surgery on my other he addressed my fears by detailing the preventative measures he would take. The outcome on that eye has been remarkable. He has given me hope for a brighter tomorrow with the repair scheduled in June. His staff has been friendly and accomodating, patiently working with his schedule and ours to minimize our travel.
