I have been seeing Dr. Lara for several years. I have always found him to listen my concerns and to immediately have a plan for a solution. I recently went in with severe pain in my hip area. He correctly diagnosed it as not a hip problem but a spinal nerve issue. A solution was provided and I had immedate lasting relief.

I was looking for a doctor that really cares about me and my health issues, and I finally found Dr. Lara. He is a great doctor; he shows me that really care for my health, since I started with him my health issues has been under control. The waiting time can be sometimes a little long but at the end of the visit I know that I was treated with the care the way I deserve.

This doctor is very lovely and caring he takes his time to answer my questions and concerns. I would highly recommend this doctor to anyone looking for a good and caring primary care physician. I?m positive anyone that chooses him will love him as well as I do.

Dr Lara seemed to have his own agenda for how the visit was going to proceed. I had blood drawn at his office 3 days before my appt., and he hae the results, but I did not get a copy of these results. He talked about me being very low in Vitamin B12, but did not give me any numbers; similarly, he said my total cholesterol was high, but again, no numeric results. The feeling I got was that he did not want me, the patient, as a discussion partner. I doubt I would go to him for a problem.
