in Charlotte, NC |
I found Dr. Laxer to be very personable and probably the most thorough physician I have ever been to. I had very few questions because he literally answered them all before I had the chance to ask. He inspired confidence and I am not nervous about my upcoming surgery as a result. I was seriously super impressed.
Decatur, GA |
From my experience of being a patient as well as working with physicians and medical staff professionally, he really needs to be more personable. He's very dry in mannerisms and the way he speaks, doesn't have a comforting personality which will make you uneasy discussing your issues with him. Be prepared for a (literally) cut and dry experience.
Ft Mill, SC |
Dr Laxer explained why I was having such pain in my back and legs. I recently transferred to live in Charlotte area and this was the first time it was clearly explained what my symptoms were. He gave a clear plan of action and I felt that at last I would receive relief following his plan of pain relief therapy and then surgery.
Only one that seemed to try to understand my back problem. Pulled up past X-rays and other Dr notes. Wants me to start PT. Gave me topical gel to use. Said MRI if this doesn't work. Doesn't spend large amounts of your money first. Nurse was fine.
Waxhaw, NC |
Was referred by Dr Singer with Ortho Carolina for a 2nd opinion due to spine /back issues. This was a total waste of my time & money. He didn't bother to read reports from 07, 09, 012 or look at the MRI CD scan from Novant in 2014. He was only interested if I would consider further eval for possible surgery to address any issue. His nurse didn't even bother to make copies of the other non- Ortho Carolina reports I brought in from scans in the past & she was quite rude. Horrible experience!

Does not try to help when surgery hurts another part of body.

He is a specialist in cut and paste' which is surgery. if you have a complicated injury involving soft tissue with strains in muscles and pre-existing conditions that do not require surgery you are pretty much buffed and turfed to wait another 3 months for another specialist. have your regular doc call or pick up your own scans, have them interpreted, if you are not a surgical candidate save yourself the delay in treatment. As far as surgeons go he actually has a pretty good personality.

Great doctor he was the only one who said that surgery will help i did my surgery two weeks ago and now i feel better .thank you Dr laxer I recommend him to all people who are suffering from pain
in Albemarle, NC |
If you are thinking about surgery and have done any research you will find Dr Laxer is the best in his field, but what sets him apart for me is the type of person he is. Their is alot of good Dr`s out here but only a few who you can see truly care. Anyone in our situation knows how much weight that carriers. When you as a person don`t have alot of hope words as simple as, ( I am going to help you ) ( I will not give up on you ) can make a world of difference. Thank you Dr Laxer.
