Ratings for Dr. Edward A. Lembert
I went to Dr. lembert with a sudden intense pain in my shoulder. I did not get a second opinion because it is so hard to fing doctors who take Medicared. He looked confused when he looked at my xrays. And then anounce he could stop the pain with shoulder impingement surgery. it was an open surgery (not artroscopic) and did nothing for the pain. The next doctor I saw said shoulder impingement was not the problem, that it was unessary surgery and that I needed a shoulder replacemnent. he sometimes reated himself exactly just a few minutes after saying for hime.
I was diagnosed with a AC joint separation. I was referred to Dr. Lembert. After an almost two hour wait in his office, his exam consisted of listening to how I was injured and him telling me how great his surgical technique was. I was to expect 70% mobility after surgery. I went back to my GP and asked for a second opinion and was referred to Dr. Thomas at SPOCK. He injected my shoulder and sent me to physical therapy. I did not have surgery and have 100% mobility. I thank God for Dr. Thomas. Dr. Lembert claimed I could not get well without surgery. Stay away from this clown.
I had a total right hip replacement. i was 27 yrs old and he kept telling me how easy this is and how i would be walking again in a very short amount of time. long story short he stretched my sciatic nerve during the surgery i woke up paralyzed and he did not care 1 bit it took to days to even admit that something had gone wrong. i stayed in the hospital 1 month and was released in a wheelchair because i had total floppy foot. i did regain the ability to walk again 6 to 8 months later. although i have been taking 20 pills a day since the surgery for pain control. the pain is the worst thing you can imagine. if that were not enough i have not returned back to work and we are going on 4 years since the surgery. i was very successful had a very good career a family. and i have lost almost every bit of it because of Edward Lembert. (and he acted as if he could care less) thanks a-lot doctor....... you single handedly ruined my life in about 45 min. (thanks again).........
I was misdiagnosed for a torn miniscus. I underwent routine miniscus surgery, but instead of this Dr. Lembert performed a "lateral release", which I had told him prior to surgery I did not want performed. I suffered a deep vein thrombosis and a pulmonary embolism following surgery, both of which are life threatening, for a surgery that I did not need. Almost one year later, I still am not recovered, still can not run and have pain daily! In addition, Dr. Lembert was incredibly rude and condescending to me after surgery.
