Peter Lehmann, MD
I really enjoy being a Family Physician. I take pride in staying up to date with the latest scientific advancements modern medicine has to offer, and then work to apply that science for each individual patient according to their particular needs and situation. No two people are alike, so I work to understand each patient as a unique person. When you come to me as a patient, you'll have a doctor who will take the time to listen to you. I spend whatever time is needed to listen to my patients’ concerns. I’m not a “7 minute per appointment” doctor with his “hand on the doorknob”. I’m here to educate my patients so they can make well informed decisions that are best for them.
I have my own opinions about how to approach medical problems, but realize patients come with many different needs and backgrounds. I realize there’s often more than one right answer when it comes to making health care treatment choices.
