    I have been with Doctor Douglas R. Lazzaro for well over ten years now and can honestly say he is one of the most knowledgeable, compassionate, and likeable physicians I have ever encountered, his bedside manner as well as his genuine concern for his patients are exemplary--here is an individual who obviously enjoys being a doctor and it shows big time. I would highly recommend Doctor Lazzaro to anyone searching out a competent and professional ophthalmology specialist.---Kevin R.McPartland.

    Exceeded all of my expectations. His bedside manner put me totally at ease. My recent visit was not only tolerable but also one that I'm glad I made. After only five minutes, his calm demeanor, professionalism, and genuine likeability inspired a sense of peace, and confidence, that was reassuring. I came away feeling that he's a Doctor who really likes what he does and one with whom people easily connect; Very warm and genuine. I felt very comfortable; He instantly won my trust. 5STARS
