As a member of the medical profession I have to say that Dr. Lalezarzadeh is one of the most exceptional physicians' I have had the pleasure of interacting with. He is professional, knowledgeable and has the best bedside manner. I am extremely thankful I was referred to him for my surgical procedure.

I had a small hernia repaired by Dr Lalezarzadeh. He did a great job. Everything went easier then expected. I would use him again in a heart beat.
in Lake Arrowhead, CA |
From my first visit with Dr. Lalezarzadeh, I felt very comfortable with him. His staff is first rate and always very helpful. I liked the fact he has medical students in the office with him; as he explains what's happening to them, the patient learns a lot.

Dr L was the most professional , kind doctor me and my wife have ever encountered. My wife had 2 ulcers removed and Dr L was very informative as to what the issues were and the procedure that needed to be done. My wife was in the hospital for 10 days and Dr L came to check on her at least every other day, which made my wife feel cared for. Also gave me piece of mind. I pray and hope to never need a surgery of this kind but if i or any of my family does i pray i could get Dr L. he is AMAZING.

I've had the need for two different surgeries by Dr. Lalezarzadeh and could not have had a more satisfactory experience. His bed side manner is outstanding. He truly listens to your concerns and answers all your questions in a manner you can understand. The surgeries were completely successful and complete recovery. Post operative pain management was handled well with advice and any prescription necessary.

Dr. L is excellent. I am fortunate Dr. L was my surgeon for a lumpectomy two years ago, and recently for a bilateral mastectomy. He is compassionate, listens to your concerns, and puts you at ease. Office personnel are helpful. Bring a sweater. The exam rooms are usually cool.

I recently had a robotic assisted laparoscopic B/L double inguinal hernia and umbilical hernia repair with mash. My one day outpatient surgery went very well. My recovery seemed quick with pain mostly covered with medicine the first week. I was pain free by the start of the third week. My laparoscopic surgery only required three small incisions in the tummy area and one in my belly button. Four weeks later my belly button looks normal and you have to look hard to fine my incisions.
in Highland, CA |
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Lalezarzadeh. He is a very positive surgeon, and has an fantastic bedside manner. He instills confidence in you that he has your medical condition under control. He is very knowledgeable, and takes the time to explain everything. You don't feel rushed. I hope I do not need anymore surgeries, but if I do, I am surely going back to him. He is truly awesome! My surgery was a hernia repair.

Dr Lalezarzadeh operated on me to reverse a colostomy and repair Hernias. During the 10 days I was in the hospital, he visited me every day. I was constantly informed both before and after the surgery was was going on. The Dr. showed a real and genuine interest in my well being. The post surgery visits were conducted timely and very informative about my recovery. In four months time, I have made a excellent recovery. I am 74 years old and very highly would recommend Dr. Lalezarzadeh.
