I went to Dr. Lazarus for my shoulder and back over 10 years ago. My right shoulder is awesome but now I'm having difficulty with my left shoulder. I'm going to see Dr. Lazarus asap. I have osteo arthritis and have seen Dr. Lazarus for that as well. It doesn't get any better than this Doctor.

Arrogant and rude. Typical old-school male who is not up on latest procedures. Go see someone younger and better informed

Guess he's a Dr. that passed with D's. Never explained post surgery or I would be down for months. Made it seem like a couple days. Was told, no crutches or cane. When pain blocker wore off, I screamed all the way to ER. Most of my pain was the ligament on left side of right knee. After surgery it still hurt so asked him what he did there, he said, "nothing", He just cleaned my meniscus. WHAT?? Really? 2 months now, worse than before surgery. Need another MRI, another Dr., another surgery.

He is a mean doctor that has no compassion for patients, If you are overweight he will not do surgery on you. He is not someone who really cares about patients just going through the motions.

He replaced my right hip and made my right side 3/4 inch higher than my left side, giving me a limp. This caused a shift in my weight to my left side, standing in place, as I would brush my teeth, let alone walking with every step. It has been 6 1/2 years, the shifting of weight to my left hip has caused the left hip to fail, needing a replacement. The limp caused a left shift of my spine with such pain down my left side, needing an operation in 2013, a discectomy and a laminectomy.
