This man is very caring. If you do not do what he tells you, expect to get a talking to! I really like him and wouldn't even consider another heart Dr. They usually do not overbook, so you rarely wait more than 15 minutes.

Dr. Lale is excellent at diagnosing, treating, and prevention of cardiovascular conditions. I have CAD with a Stent (since 2002) and other chronic medical conditions which he always is concerned are on track too. I have been a patient of his for over 13 years and feel confident, safe, and well cared for by Dr. Lale. Thank you!

He found a blockage in my heart during a pre-op stress test for knee replacement surgery. I went to his office for the results, he said he had found the blockage and had to go in to veryify or disprove. I made him do that the very next day. He took excellent care of me and has been wonderful since, answering all my questions.
