I was very impressed with Dr. Lake on my first visit. He had not yet received my medical records from my PCP but discussed my medical history. In his examination he found nodules on my thyroid and did an ultrasound while I was there and reviewed with me. My A1C has been very high and I was referred to him by my PCP for management of my diabetes. Follow up in May and I am excited to be working with Dr. Lake to get my diabetes under control.

I started seeing Dr. Lake when he started practicing at Gessler Clinic in Winter Haven, FL. When he moved to his new office I followed him, even though I have to come from Lakeland through all that traffic. He's worth it!!

I have been to several other Endo’s doctors and believe me he has been the best for me.. He listens and explains so you can understand, does not talk over you or around you... Great Doctor.... Thank you Dr. Lake for helping get my A1C with in a good range.

Unfortunately, I also found him very dismissive and unhelpful. When I asked him about different symptoms and issues I was having he dismissed them by saying my "labs" were fine. When I asked what I should do about the symptoms I was experiencing, he said he did not know and referred me back to my primary. I gave him a specific question on 2nd visit and he did the same thing. Runs only basic labs. Does not seem interested or curious. Did not seem to know much about my rare diagnosis.

Dr. Lake is very friendly & wonderful. I have never had to wait more than 10 minutes for my appointments. I have a thyroid disease, after some blood tests, an ultrasound & med changes, I am doing wonderful. Unless necessary, he is going to make you go thru tests you really don't need. Very quick & efficient. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lake.

We travel from out of town to see Dr. Lake. He understands diabetes exceptionally well as he's a diabetic himself. Some people think diabetes is just blood sugar numbers, but there is a lot more to the care of a diabetic than your numbers, and Dr. Lake understands that. He & his staff spend time with you so they get to know more about the factors you deal with when managing your diabetes. I think he'd give the same quality care for any of the diseases he deals with. He's the best!

The endocrinologist I was referred to couldn't see me for 4 mo. Dr. Lake reviewed my labs & said I was fine. At my request, we did more tests - all except 1 came back abnormal (some just slightly outside normal). The last one he told me was totally normal - it wasn't. I asked him to double-check & do a different test. He blew me off by telling me to get a 2nd opinion. He referred me to Moffitt. That Dr honed in on the abnormal results. I now have an appt with a surgeon to remove my active tumor.

I went to visit Dr. Lake after being diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis hoping to find some direction for treatment. He was arrogant. Had me sip some water, felt my neck and said "your thyroid is fine". Have these 2 blood tests done and come back in 4 months. I would never recommend anyone use this doctor for any thyroid conditions.
