I came on urgent referral to Dr. Lehr and he came highly recommended. He really took the time to explain what is going on and how he can help solve my problem.
Dr. Lehr gave us plenty of time to discuss the upcoming surgery. We never felt rushed or hurried. For a complex process he simplified it and made it easy to understand. Very comforting...
Dr. Lehr Team got me in 30 days earlier than originally scheduled so my wife could be at the meeting. No issues with waiting more than 15 minutes since he was in surgery prior. Wife and I are extremely happy that he will be my surgeon!
Great experience in all aspects.
Dr Lehr has both expertise and great communication skills. We very efficiently discussed treatment options, tradeoffs, recovery scenarios, etc. He is someone I would be very confident to have as a surgeon.
I love the concern that Dr. Lehr shows for me as his patient. He personally calls to follow up on how I'm doing, as well as having his staffing call to schedule my needed appointments. He listens to my questions and concerns and respects what I'm saying in making decisions about my care.
All appointment I've had with Swedish have been superior ...thank you!
Excellent information to help us make informed decisions.
Was not rushed. Took as much time as I needed to understand treatment options.
Dr. Lehr was extremely kind, easy to talk to and listened fully to my concerns. He helped lessen my fears. I feel very trusting of him as the surgeon for my upcoming surgery.
I got the best care from the doctor. He knows my situation and my health history even though this is my first time meeting him. I am confident that I'll get the best care for my surgery and make me more comfortable in my upcoming surgery.
My experience with all the cardiac physicians has been one where I have been respected, my thoughts and questions heard, and I am an active participant in the choices for my medical care.
It was a good and useful visit
Impressed with Dr. Lehr's visit. Had my sister who Is a retired cardio physicians' assistant with me and she was very impressed with Dr. Lehr. She found Dr. Lehr's approach outstanding and his recommendations outstanding.
Highly competent, great bedside manner, inspired confidence
Dr. Lehr listens and responds respectfully, prioritizes emergencies before scheduled patients who then wonder if they are important to Dr. Lehr. If you are going to make patients wait for 60+ minutes for their appointment, please provide soothing music for them to listen to.
Dr. Lehr is an honest, kind, very capable doctor who explained things to us in a clear and concise manner. Although we felt like we were supposed to lean in the direction of another surgeon at this time, we will definitely recommend him highly and keep in mind for any future health/heart concerns.
First visit to Dr Lehr. Was very pleased.
Overall experience was great. I was a little surprised how long of a wait I had to have my blood drawn. Not sure If they were short staffed, as It did snow that day. Thank you to all the caregivers for your service.
Dr. Lehr elicited a very confident response to my concerns about the procedure He's obviously eminently qualified in this discipline I left very informed about the decision I needed to make All in all this consultation was exceptional
Scheduling was an issue,was canceled twice. Everything else was very good.
All staff from reception to discharge were a delight to work with and everyone was knowledgeable and courteous!
Dr. Lehr is very friendly and he knows exactly what my health problem and my concerns are. He gave me clear explanation and what the next step is. He is very professional and is very patient to answer my questions. No matter if I will do surgery or not, he is the surgent I can trust.
Busy hospital but good one
I admire Dr. Lehr.
Very nice and informative
Dr.Lehr is professional, knowledgeable and easy to communicate with
Dr Lehr very thorough explanation of my situation was spot on and very informative information in reference to my questions.
My visit with Dr. Lehr was amazing. Although I had never met with him, he knew everything about my medical history and was very thorough In explaining everything to me. I feel very fortunate to have him as my cardiac surgeon. My only disappointment (through no fault of his) is the time wait to get in for surgery.
Dr Lehr provided extensive explanations of my recent tests and possible treatment options. He ordered one more measurement and will contact me once he has those results. I felt more calm after my visit with him and feel that he will make the best recommendation for next steps once he has the information.
This appointment was the initial opportunity to meet with the surgeon who will be conducting my surgical procedure in the future. He was able to explain, in pretty specific detail, of what my procedure will be and potential complications. He also made sure that I had ample opportunity to ask questions.
The video experience gave me confidence that Dr. Lehr will perform the surgery skillfully.
