Patient satisfaction ratings and reviews are based on personal opinions. Before you choose any doctor you should take into account their background, training, specialized experience AND their patient satisfaction to ensure they are the right fit for you.
As a graduate of the University of Iowa, Carver College of Medicine, Dr. Lara ambitiously opened his medical practice with the idea of healing patients and making their lives better. It wasn't long before he realized that many of his patients were suffering from conditions that were being treated, but rarely healed. He was not making the difference he dreamed of, and so he decided to make a change. As he researched other avenues and thought of switching to non-traditional medicine, he realized that profound healing could come through focusing on weight loss and lifestyle modification. Almost a decade later and after helping thousands of patients change their lives, Dr. Lara has designed a proven method to help people lose weight and achieve the health of their dreams.
