Dr. Lake's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lake "Dr. Lake was born in Phoenix, AZ and attended Deer Valley High School in Glendale, where he graduated valedictorian in a class of nearly 600 students. He attended the University of Arizona where he earned a degree in chemistry and graduated with the highest academic distinction, summa cum laude. Dr. Lake continued at the University of Arizona for his medical degree. There he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society (AOA). AOA is the only national medical honor society and induction is based not only on highest academic distinction, but leadership, professionalism, promise of future success, and commitment to service. Dr. Lake chose to complete residency in orthopaedic surgery at Campbell Clinic because of its deep roots and tradition in the field of orthopaedics. Campbell Clinic is the home of the first orthopaedic surgery residency program and is known nationally and internationally for Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics, the definitive textbook on orthopaedic surgery used in physician training. He was elected Chief Resident during his training at Campbell Clinic. Dr. Lake then completed a foot and ankle fellowship at the internationally renowned Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Lake was active in medical education during residency and fellowship and has written several articles as well as book chapters. Dr. Lake is the team foot and ankle consultant for the Arizona Cardinals and Arizona Rattlers."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lake "Few people work the same job for 30-35 years.  Physicians are an exception to this rule.  I think that one of the big reasons for this is the rewarding nature of a good doctor-patient relationship.  As an Orthopedic Surgeon, my success is measured by how well I can improve (or prevent decline of the function of my patients. Though I am a surgeon, I believe that most orthopaedic problems can be treated by nonsurgical measures such as orthotics, therapy, injections, medications, etc.  My patients are surgical candidates when nonsurgical methods are failing and when the patient tells me that they are ready for surgery.  Throughout treatment, I hope to develop a relationship with my patients based on two-way communication. Decision for surgery is made jointly with the patient because it is such an important decision.  I believe that maintaining this healthy doctor-patient relationship will make my job just as rewarding in 30 years as it is now."

My visit with Dr. Lake was a huge disappointment. First of all, I had to wait for an hour and half beyond my appointment time to see him, Secondly, when I finally saw him, he couldn't diagnose my problem.
