Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lurie "My focus is patient care. Many of the diseases within endocrinology can be complex and difficult for patients to understand. I think patients do much better when they can understand their disease and understand the pros and cons of treatment decisions. Therefore my priority is to develop good communication with patients. I try to help patients better understand their disease so that they can make informed treatment decisions together with me. I also try to help patients cope with these diseases to make their life as easy and normal as possible."

Miami,FL |
He was horrible! If you have an endocrine issue do not go to him. He is very unknowledgeable and a huge waste of time and money.

He is very professional. Accurate and understanding with your needs and concerns. Receptionists unprofessional, rude and has no manners on the phone or in person. Dr. Lurie can do much better without her and get a better receptionist whom is the face and voice of an office.
