Finding Dr. Lake is the best thing I could ever have hoped for. I travel all the way from Riverview, Fl. to his office in Pinellas Park, Fl. and Dr. Lake is worth every mile! He had my diabetes under control in two months what other doctors couldn't even do in years. in fact they've made it worse....more

I was referred to Dr. Lake by my primary Doctor, within weeks had my type 2 under control. I consider Dr. lake a valued member of my health care team, I would love to have him as a primary Doctor. I would also highly recommend Dr. Lake to anyone with no hesitations.

Have a number of "ologists" and I can talk to Dr. Lake the best. My questions are answered on my level. In the last 5 months my levels are now in check with his monitoring and care. I definitely would refer Dr. Lake. Good staff also.

One of the worst doctors I have ever seen. He did not listen to your respect my history of treatment and requests for simple blood work. Despite being half my age, he was condescending and dismissive. I highly recommend that you search for a better doctor.

I HAD DR LAKE AS ENDO IN WINTER HAVEN, FL. I DROVE ALL THE WAY FROM ST PETE, TO WINTER HAVEN, FL TO SEE HIM, SIMPLY BECAUSE I NEVER COULD FIND A ENDO HERE IN ST PETE THAT I LIKED. NOW THAT HE'S PRACTICING IN PINELLAS, I'LL BE CALLING TOMORROW TO MAKE MY FIRST APPOINTMENT!
