I was referred by my Nephrologist from Vanderbilt to Dr. Lazar. I have 4th. stage Kidney disease. Meeting with Dr. Lazar he spent a goodly amount of time talking about my disease. After my 3rd. visit he realized that something was radically wrong with me and had 2 specialized tests done. They revealed that I had a huge amount of liquid accumulated in the sac surrounding my heart. I was Immediately hospitlized me and the surgery needed was performed. His diagnosis was true & saved my life.

Horrible Kidney doctor. I was experiencing kidney failure at Boca Regional hospital and Dr. Ira Lazar came to my hospital room to break the bad news, and then told me at my bedside that this was going to get real expensive to treat, and asked me who was going to pay for it? I could see his shifty eyes looking toward my wallet. I was shocked since the hospital had already gotten my insurance info... Then he made an appointment for me to see him at his office once I was released from the hospita
