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.

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.
