Dr. Lambright worked very urgent, surgery scheduled in afternoon but when I got home he had moved it to that morning. Very pleased with him and his urgency.

Dr. Lambright & his staff make us feel like we are his most important patients. He's never in a hurry and always engages us in two-way conversations. I just don't have enough words to express the positive encounters we've had & how much we trust Dr. Lambright.

Patient | May 1, 2016

Dr Lambright was wonderful and took the case of this very rare tumor when other doctors here in Indpls said there was nothing they could do for me. I was very thankful that a good friend knew of this doctor and recommended him to me. Surgery was done as quickly as possible and I had wonderful results.
Patient | May 1, 2016

Took time to explain and to listen to our concerns. Was very concerned that we understood.

Dr. Lambright was very caring and informative about upcoming tests and procedures. (My in-office procedure that day was performed by Dr. Gilmore, not Dr. Lambright.)

Researched options with other local & out of state hospitals & concluded he was BEST.
