As a physician myself, I think I occupy a special niche from which I am able to evaluate fellow healers. I have seen Dr. Jeffrey Lake in consultation, for an examination and for a follow-up visit. I am so impressed by Dr. Lake's manner, kindness, empathy and diagnostic skills. He reduced my concerns and was spot-on with his diagnosis and his therapeutic recommendations . Also, I appreciate his light hearted humor that lifted what could be a gloomy encounter. A terrific physician at all levels.
