Dr.Lazar explains everything you never knew you needed to know. He is kind and makes eye contact when speaking with you rather than typing on his computer as some psychiatrists have been said to do. Lovely offices and staff.

I called Dr. Lazar’s practice twice, left voicemails both times, and never heard back. Very rude, unprofessional and careless, especially for a mental health professional.
