Without question one of the most caring and patient doctor's especially since he must work in an environment without available imaging tools to rely on for diagnosis, at least for my condition- perilymphatic fistula. This leaves him open to questioning by insurance and workman's comp. carriers. He is the real deal when it comes to advocating and helping his patients who have been forced to undergo treatments and have symptoms dismissed. He is completely underrated.

I have never written a review before... but for Dr. Lehrer I owe him my life. I suffered for 10 yrs with vestibular issues and lost so much. After meeting him and going through the testing we did surgery and for the first time in a long time I feel great! I have my life back and able to drive again and go to places without falling over or my balance/vision giving out on me. I saw endless doctors in the past and wasted so much money. It is just scary that he is the only one who does the surgery that I needed. More doctors should do this; from what I am told it is because they don't want to. this needs to change. I am just one person, but I can only imagine how many other people out there that are suffering. Wish I knew how to get the word out... Because he is amazing and his staff is amazing!
