i LOVE everything about Dr Lichon. I have been to a lot of specialists and never felt like they paid attention to my pain and concerns. Dr Lichon is always patient and ready to hear all my concerns.

Dr. Lichon is my "Lupus" doctor that I see about every 4 months. Dr. Lichon is one of the best health care providers that I have ever had. He provides clear explanations when I have a question regarding any of my Lupus conditional characteristics. He is awesome!

Dr. Lichon is not my primary care dr, instead I see him specficially related to.... He is a wealth of information and always takes time to listen and go over bloodwork and medications to move forward with appropriate action plan. Also, the entire office staff (reception, nurses etc...) are a pleasure to interact with.

Dr. Lichon was kind enough to fit me in to his already packed schedule. His staff was warm, welcoming and professional as well as concerned about my condition. He was very patient and did a great job of outlining my options.
