in Winchester, KY |
Dr. Lazarus treats my 15 yr old son & diagnosed him with "Ocular Histoplasmosis". He is a wonderful Doctor! I highly recommend him. My son woke up blind in his right eye a few mths ago. Thanks to this doctor, he's had some of his vision restored & possibly stopped from progressing. We drive 2 hrs to see him because we feel like he is such a great Dr. & we can't thank him enough! Office staff (nurses) are also excellent! If you have eye/vision issues, this is the place to go!! Thank u Dr. Lazarus
