DO SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR PHONE SYSTEM. THEY KEEP YOU ON HOLD FOR 10 MINUTES BEFORE IT AUTOMATICALLY GOES TO A VOICE MAIL. YOU RARELY SPEAK TO A PERSON, ALWAYS HAVE TO LEAVE A MESSAGE. MY TIME IS IMPORTANT, TOO, SO WHEN I HAVE THE TIME TO CALL, I EXPECT TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE AND GET AN APPOINTMENT RATHER THAN JUMP THROUGH THEIR HOOPS AND THEN THEY WILL CALL YOU WHEN IT'S CONVENIENT FOR THEM. NOT PATIENT-CENTERED AT ALL! JUST ANSWER THE PHONE...THAT WOULD MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE!!!

Since I was refused to see my doctor because the receptionist checked me in a few minutes late, I was denied keeping my appointment. Let me explain. I arrived at my appointment on time, yet had to stand in line for the 1 receptionist to check me in. When I was checked in the office manager called her stating I cannot be seen because I was checked in late! This was by 2 minutes, literally! IT WAS NOT MY FAULT! My paperwork was already filled out and complete. I was dumbfounded to say the least!

Worst medical experience ever. Although his offices weren't on my PCP or OBGYN's referral list and a great distance from my home and not on my Dr.s referral list I went with a personal reference. After 4 months, numerous hoops, "referral procedures" and waiting 3 weeks for their return call to even set up an appointment the PA refused to see me for being 6 minutes late after a 1.5-hour drive and 45 miles in non-peak traffic time, The arrogance of this office was beyond disappointing.

Was a great practice years ago when my mother was first diagnosed with Grave's disease. Now that I have serious thyroid issues I can on get in to see his assistant and she is rude and doesn't take in consideration symptoms. Looking for new endocrinologist now!

Have gone to Dr.Lackan for years. They started cancelling my appointments and trying to change them to times that wouldn't work for me. Then I had some symptoms that were cardiac related possibly caused by my thyroid. Not only was the response time unacceptable-days, but the response was inappropriate also. I finally had to seek help elsewhere. He was not available when I needed help the most. I'm very disappointed!

My mother saw Dr. Lacken for thyroid cancer and his care of her was incompetent, if not malpractice, He confused her lab work with another client, put inaccurate notes in her file and though she was scheduled for a procedure , Dr. Lacken refused to see her and she was told they could not "work her in." She had confirmed her appointment the previous day. She went to the hospital and the procedure took 10 minutes.

Long wait (1.5 hours average) poor follow up- poor communication with staff- inability to leave messages - long hold time- inaccurate information given by staff......many more issues!!
