Dr. Michael J Lyons has the following 1 specialty
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I'm a creature of habit and want to pick a doctor and stick with them. I've been a patient for the past 8 years. The last 2 years are the years I have seen him most...probably 10-15 times. I'm fine with his quirky and abrasiveness. I don't need it sugar coated. However....now the down side. My average office wait has been over an hour and up to 2 1/2 hours and that is with a SCHEDULED appointment not a drop in. I've been misdiagnosed once and he was way off. There is a nurse named Giovanni who apparently is in charge of communications with patients to do call backs and such. She does NOT call. You have to keep calling and she is rarely available to take the call so you leave a message that she ignores. I recently was sick with something flu-like and had a fever that was about 102 for 6 days. I was getting concerned on the 4th day when I still had that level of fever and called the office at 9 am to ask if this was normal or if I needed to come in. Two days later I received a call back that maybe I should come in. I'd already gone to another doctor by that point who recognized what the problem was and had prescribed the appropriate medication. My child (20 y.o. college student) needed a note from Dr. Lyons office that Dr. Lyons put Giovanni in charge of to send. The university didn't receive it. We called and when we finally did get in touch with Giovanni she said she sent it (she lied....she hadn't). We went back and forth with her over the course of several phone calls before she finally did her job and sent the doctor note to the university and charged us to do so. Dr Lyons seems totally distracted when he finally does come in the exam room to do the exam and seems to be in a hurry to get out. I have literally heard him standing in the hallway visiting (not work related) with office staff for 15-20 minutes while I sat in the exam room waiting. I've had it with Dr Lyons and Giovanni. There are too many good doctors with good staff out there who COMMUNICATE for a person to deal with these two at Gulf Coast Medicine. I definitely would not recommend them.
Dr. Lyons is knowledgeable but somewhat quirky & abrasive. He lacks social skills & compassion. The wait time a Texas Gulf Coast Medical is obscene. I waited in the waiting room 50 min. then of course waited in the treatment room for the doctor for another 20 min. I thought it was a one time thing but on my 2nd, 3rd, 4th, & 5th visit .... same thing again .... horrible wait!! He seems like a decent doctor but definitely not worth the wait.
