Excellent, knowledgeable and caring providers


Doctor was mentally on vacation, but it was good. He was a good explainer and listener




Dr. Lynch was amazing. His explanation of what was going on and next steps was extremely easy to follow, and I left feeling like I was finally headed in the right direction for my injury. I will always try to go back to him with sports medicine concerns, and will definitely recommend him to friends and family.
