Thomas Lyles, MD
Board Certified, Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology
I became a physician because I wanted to provide medical care to people and also, to serve my community with quality healthcare. During appointments with my patients, I value face-to-face interactions and never use a computer while in the exam room.
