Interests

Medical Interests

I enjoy providing care to all family members — from newborns to their siblings, parents and grandparents. I was trained in the full spectrum of family medicine and continue to provide pediatric, men's health, women's health and minor office-based procedures. In addition, I provide low-risk prenatal care.

Personal Interests

Above all, I strive to be a good husband and father. I enjoy the time that I get to spend with my family, whether traveling, sailing, hiking, camping or just being at home with them. I was born in Holland and grew up overseas in North Africa. I enjoy learning about other cultures and traveling whenever I can.

Dr. Lynam has been my provider for about 20 years. He understands my needs.

First of all, I came in with a sinus issue and when Dr. Lynam looked in my nose he stood back and extended his arm like he was afraid of catching my cooties, which was a bit offensive. Dr. Lynam spent maybe 5 minutes with me and after he left the room I remembered a concern I wanted to discuss and I asked the nurse if I could talk to him about it. She checked with him and told me I'd have to make another appointment. That was very upsetting as he barely spent 5 minutes with me to begin with. I felt like I wasted my time and money. I'm sad to say, but I've noticed a decline in the care my husband and I have received from Dr. Lynam in the last year. We used to think he was a great doctor. We've experienced this lack of care with a couple of other providers in this clinic, so we're not sure if we want to continue going there. I've had better treatment from a walk-in clinic I had to go to on a weekend.

It seems to me this Provider is not taking me too seriously as he should, I need to go to another Provider because obviously doesn't trust me to get my prescriptions, he doesn't keep up with the refills but, expect from me to keep taking my medicines, he doesn't communicate too well with Specialists to see the progress of my other health conditions even though I have written all that in my medical report.

He is my Doctor and I go to him because I trust him and he works with me. It is as if I have known him for years. That is where you want go be with someone who is looking out for your health. Your health is a partnership and that is why I respect this relationship. I walked away from a 16 year relationship with my previous Doctor. i am not sorry I did. I am in a good place.

I do not mind waiting longer to see Dr Lynam because he gives all of his patients all of the time they need. He is excellent. I would rather he be running a few minutes behind and know he will spend quality time with me than have him on time and in a hurry shuffling me out the door. He is an excellent provider.

The only challenge with Dr. Lynam is that it can be tough to get an appt with him..,This is not important for my as I am healthy, but my husband has had some urgent medicals and had to see an associate. We would prefer to get our care from a single doctor we know and trust.

Very thorough discussion about medication options. Was referred to another health care team member. That person called me the next day. she had a very good understanding of my medical condition that occurred 39 years ago. Very impressive. I was amazed. The MA was excellent. She gave me a flu shot and I didn't feel a thing. my entire experience was extremely positive.

The only reason I had a long wait was because I had missed an appointment and they squeezed me in. So, although I had a wait, I was provided with my check-up right after I had screwed up.

This doctor was certain that I lost my balance because [...] and ordered blood tests, even though I told him that I thought it was my ear. He never checked my ear, just ordered the blood work. And when my tests came back fine, No further attempt was made to figure out if there was something going on with my ear. He just sent me a message that my tests were fine and to take care. My chiropractor was the one who figured out what was wrong and offered treatment that helped the condition.

I don't know if he was distracted or if he was working from a template he wasn't comfortable with or what, but this was a very unusual visit. He's usually very thorough and "on it." This time, he was just OK.
