Dr. David K Lemon has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Never suggested or discussed a common treatment

I have been a patient of this doctor since 1993. He diagnosed my rare heart condition but never gave me any options about possible treatments. He kept me on the same schedule of a yearly exam and daily prescription for keeping my blood pressure low. Over the years, certain symptoms got worse, to the point of affecting my mental and physical abilities. At a personal and emotional low point for me, I went to the Internet and did my own research and discovered a treatment that would relieve the intrusive symptoms I had been experiencing for many years. Dr. Lemon was quick to support my decision but did not give me any professional opinion about the treatment. In 2008, I had a successful operation on my heart and I have had complete relief from the problems I had been experiencing from 1993 to 2008. I am so disappointed with Dr. Lemon ... how many years ago did this treatment become available ... did he know about it ... why didn't he tell me about it ... one year, five years ago. I am sorry that I had even one more day of discomfort than necessary.
