What People Say About Dr. George Lazarou, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I recently had prolapse surgery with Dr. Lazarou and would recommend him highly. Prior to surgery he explained other options enabling me to make an informed decision and I then chose to move forward with the surgery. Dr. Lazarou thoroughly explained what the surgery entailed and answered all my questions. Surgery went very well as did my recuperation and aftercare with him and members of his office team. Everyone treated me with the utmost respect and were available to discuss my concerns throughout this experience. I especially appreciated his bedside manner during office visits, during my brief hospital stay and my post op visit. Overall, he and his team made this a very positive experience.

Dr. Lazarou is an exceptional doctor and a patient, pleasant person. After years of working together trying all options other than surgery, he performed a procedure on me that worked!!! He was determined to "fix" me without surgery and he succeeded! I highly recommend him.

Dr Lazarou is the best surgeon. He is the most honest doctor. He explained all the risks and complications to me. I am a RN. I follow all his instructions to prevent complications. My high risk surgery was very stressful without any complication. I am very grateful for his amazing skills. Thank you!

I recently had a hysterectomy performed by Dr. Lazarou due to a uterine prolapse and I am happy to say that the surgery was successful and I am healing well with no complications. Dr. Lazarou and his staff are very caring, courteous and professional. For a busy office you are never waiting long or feel rushed when the Dr. examines you.

He performed an abdominal Sacrocolpopexy since he can’t do laparscopic procedures. However, he used tacs instead of suturing the mesh, probably because tacs are faster. A few weeks later, I developed a bowel obstruction, spent a week in the hospital and had to have a second surgery. He lied and claimed the obstruction was not caused by the hysterectomy. Two years later, I needed a third six hour revision surgery to clean up his mess and redo the Sacrocolpopexy.

Dr. Lazarou abides by his Care Philosophy... "treating every woman like she is family." That's exactly the care I get from him. I am so thankful for a very successful pelvic prolapse surgery by Dr. Lazarou. His amazing team, Nurse Practitioner Catherine Quinn, Evelyn and Karen Romero are simply wonderful. They all made a difference in my life and I have never felt better.

Very nice, friendly staff and great bedside manner. Very down to earth. Easy to get an appointment and fast service with little waiting. Informative about the procedure I needed and willingness to work with my OBGYN with scheduling. Very professional. Only suggestion would be suggesting more understanding in patient recovery. My pain quotient was higher than I anticipated - and understanding that every patient’s history may contribute to a different experience. Overall 5!

Dr. Lazarou and his entire team were professional, friendly and helpful during my office visits and during my time in the hospital. They prepared me well before the surgery, answering all my questions - even those I didn't know to ask. I felt that I was in very capable are caring hands. I had a very positive experience and a very good outcome, for which I am extremely grateful.
