"Severe injuries turned my life into a nightmare of agony, despair, painkillers, and sleeping pills. Through "The Program", Dr. Lemons and his staff gave me the blessed relief of relaxation and pain management. Amazingly, graduation doesn't mean discharge. I have followed Dr. Lemons guidance and counseling for over three years! No other program has given me the security of knowing that I don't have to face chronic pain issues alone."


"I was referred to Dr. Jim Lemons at a time in my life when I was feeling incredibly overwhelmed and desperate! I had been to several doctors who were trying to determine whether or not I had developed Parkinson's Disease. (This dreadful disease had already affected many of my family members including my grandfather, father, uncle and younger brother. I was devastated at the prospect of living with Parkinson's myself!) When I visited a neurologist to discuss my symptoms and fears, he realized that the anxiety I was experiencing, along with the pain I had, was consuming my life. He told me about Dr. Lemons and the program he offers. I consider his referral literally a lifesaver!! Dr. Lemons and his staff are a group of terrific individuals, who not only treat a person's physical condition, but also recognize the importance of teaching people how to care for their mental and spiritual health. After going through the six-week program I now have tools and skills that help me deal with day-to-day stressful situations. I cannot say enough good things about the program - God truly blessed me the day I met Dr. Lemons!"


"For me, one of the most important concepts was learning that they (the staff) really care and have a sincere desire to help. I really enjoyed the time that I spent at the Lemons Center. I received positive information and the incentive to manage the pain and discomfort of fibromyalgia. It gave me a complete view of chronic pain and the tools to deal with it as well as curing my depression."


"I have suffered from severe, chronic migraine headaches for many years and have sought relief from a wide range of practitioners, both conventional and alternative, both in-town and out-of-town, without any effective results. The headaches have been so severe that they have resulted in total disability from work as managing partner of my law firm. The Lemons Center is the first (and only) place that has understood all aspects of the problem, retained the necessary staff and developed an appropriate and effective program to deal with the management of chronic pain of all types. They have been honest about informing their patients that there is no "cure" for the chronic pain we are experiencing but, they have been equally forthright about telling us that our lives can be improved immeasurably by learning more about our pain and by adhering to a daily, multi-phase pain management regimen. As a recent "graduate" of the program, I would highly recommend it to those who are ready and willing to embark upon a program that has the capability of producing effective results."


The Lemons Center program gave me a new beginning on my 23 year journey with chronic pain. I remember sitting in my first group session listening, observing, then being introduced. An overwhelming swell of emotion came over me. I was not alone. It was in their words, in their eyes. An unspoken understanding. My first words were, "thank you to all of you. This is the first time in my journey I have been in a room of people who get it, who understand." Post graduation is truly a continuation of my journey. With the support of my LC friends, the family meetings, Dr. Jim, and those I have continued to meet through the LC, I know I will not be alone in the feelings, fears, questions, and, yes, victories that come now. A quote from the Lemons Center, "I hear you, I am here." I say that to you.
