His office is friendly, efficient, and timely. Even surgeries are as timely as can be expected. I love Dr. Larry. He will probably retire soon, but his patients will be in great hands with his son, David Lemak, whom I and many members of my family have seen.

Description of Work
I had extreme pain in hands and arms. My husband had two total knee replacements and shoulder surgery, along with several laparoscopic surgeries with Dr. Lemak. All of my family members use him. He is the team orthopedic doctor for Auburn University & many junior and senior high school teams in the Birmingham area and does this on his own time & without pay. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Larry. When my husband passed away, he sent flowers. I would not consider using a different orthopedic surgeon, except his son, David, who is in practice with him. When I went to him with the extreme pain, I had seen several other GPs & they said it was arthritis. After thoroughly examining my entire body & an MRI, he found that it was a pinched nerve & had he not found it, the problem could have progressed and could have led to loss of function.

A wonderful staff and doctors ready to help and very concerned about my knee injury and accompanying limp. However due to Obamacare and the changes in Insurance Coverage and no fault of Lemak Sports Medicine, I must first go through 4 weeks of Physical Therapy and anti-inflammatory meds before I can be approved for a much needed MRI in order for the doctor to see the exact damage inside my knee an...

If you are interested in sports at all, you read about him all the time. He is one of the major orthopedic doctors for college, high school, and professional athletes. They come to him from all over the world. He is a wonderful person and one of the nicest people in the medical profession I've ever met. He told me how he was going to do the surgery and how to take care of myself post surgery. I wo...

the assistant came in to discuss medical history and the injury. Once she left, it wasn't another 2 minutes until the Dr. came in. The same time-frame continued through ultrasound, medical equipment (knee brace), scheduling, and check out. The staff was uber-professional, almost making me feel cheated that we were in and out of their so quickly. All members of the staff reiterated to call back if ...

Description of Work
Came down with a very painful knee injury last night. Knowing a visit to the ER Doc would tell me to stay off it, ice it, treat the pain and tell me to call an orthopedic clinic in the morning, I opted to not expose myself to 188 minute wait time and who knows how many flu bugs. I tried calling LeMak before 8 AM, but their answering system/service was malfunctioning. When I called at 8 AM, a got a warm body that found an appointment for me at 9:15. After the obligatory time to fill out new patient forms, there was a brief wait, then we were escorted back to X-Ray, which were taken immediately. It was on to the exam room, where it wasn't 2 minutes before

I went with a recomendation to have MRI on my back and only got X-ray which I had already gotten before this visit. The dr spoke to me as if I was faking my back injury and talked down to me instead of just a regular patient. I thought it was a sub par visit and found he people to quite rude. I would not recommend anyone here.
