Dr. Lake is by far the best ENT here in Tuscaloosa. Thank you so much for all that you did for us. There's a whole lot more that I can say, but I'm confident that I will get my chance to say it directly to you. You are a physician, but in my opinion; you are one of God's Angels. Thank you -Angela Hagler

I love Dr. Lake. He helped me by putting tubes in my ears at the age of 60. I love his friendly staff and his office is so organized. My appointments are always on time and I don't have to wait for him to see me. He quickly treats me and I'm out of his office in no time. I love that he does not leave you sitting and waiting on him forever like most doctors do. He is a wonderful Doctor.

Dr Lake is a very caring and understanging Dr. He listens to your concerns and gives you the best advice for your care. He performed Nasal surgery on me and explained the procedure, and what to expect after surgery. The surgery went perfect and there was virtually no pain after. I had been having sinus problems for years but the horror stories I read and heard kept me from getting help. Dr. Lake helped me to overcome my fears. I am so thankful to God for Dr. Lake and his knowledge and skill.
