I am very happy with Dr. Lehr and feel he is very knowledgeable and able to explain things in a clear and understandable manner. The only negative comment I have is that it took about 20 minutes waiting in the exam room before he arrived and then he seemed to be in a bit of a hurry to leave for his next appointment after he covered the results of my echocardiogram. He got up twice to leave, at which point I said I still had another question for him, which he then answered.

Dr. Lehr is a fantastic doctor for me. I am a complicated patient, with several rare medical conditions that are difficult to manage. He allows me to give input ( I work in the medical field) about my care and treatment, which I really appreciate. Also I know he genuinely cares about my well-being, which I wish were true for all the providers I have seen. He is a gem.

Dr Lehr was recommended by the [...] dept staff when I mentioned my previous cardiologist in Kennewick had located. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Lehr assuming my cardio care & appreciate having the option to be seen for routine cardio care in Hermiston vs driving to Kennewick

I have gone through bad care in California which led to my worsening health condition. I'm so grateful to have a team that is trying everything in their power to improved my quality of life.

There is need to schedule patients in a way so as to avoid 2 hour waits.

Communication is curt and lacking. Just the way things are worded it seems like there is a defensiveness when questions are asked if him. if I had not checked on my K-chart I would have waited 2 full months to find out the results of my stress and echo tests. I was left wondering why things suddenly changed requiring my meds to be doubled.

This was just a "general" check up after changing medications. During the time period Dr. Lehr and I communicated a couple of times via K-chart email. Dr. Lehr is very caring as well as learned. It worried me thinking he has @ 5 more years until retirement.

the care provider removed several of my OTC supplements but never discussed this with me and I only learned of it when reading over my patient summary when I got home and I sent a message to him to clarify this was correct and got a call back that afternoon from one of his nursing assistants saying that it was colorectal the Dr wanted me to stop the bites OTC supplements as he delt they were not necessary. Alao it listed an old RX which I did not provide as currently taking and they removed that from my medications list. [...]

I just can't say enough about this provider. He made sure I understood everything and in a nice way let me know that I needed to keep on an exercise program.
