What People Say About Dr. John Lake, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
I went to Dr. Lake two months ago for the very first time, upon the recommendation of a co-worker. I am so glad I did. Fifteen minutes of explaining my personal health and history, and he was able to pinpoint what the issue likely was, and how he came to the conclusion. He asked a few questions for detail and clarification, and even brought up issues I hadn't mentioned or realized I had. He then gave a suggested treatment plan, which was sensible, safe, and very easy to understand. I just followed up and was given time to explain the progress and setbacks in my treatment plan, and he adjusted the plan to try to find even better results. I was open and honest about my life and my problems, and within minutes he was able to diagnose the issue. I cannot recommend Dr. Lake enough! Staff is very polite and accommodating. Dr. Lake is very knowledgeable.
