"He takes time to ensure that students are learning, takes time out of his busy day to teach students, and allows students to be actively involved in procedures, and patient care. I was impressed by Dr. Lem's amazing bedside manner and can attest the Dr. Lem is a role model for clinical skills, beside manners, and fund of knowledge.
