I went to Dr. Lazar last Wednesday, and he called me today (Monday) with the results of my tests. He was not only funny, kind, and knowledgeable, he explained everything to me in great detail, helping to better understand my condition. I simply can not speak highly enough about him. He's an exceptional doctor with a great bedside manner. I am very happy to be under his care. Please note: his waiting time is long because he takes the time to give each patient the time and care they deserve.

Hands down the best. My mother has been a patient of his for over 20 years and I have had 3 colonoscopies performed by Dr. Lazar. He explains fully the procedure and the results. Dr. Lazar has an easy going down to earth personality that puts you at ease and at the same time the feeling of full confidence in his medical knowledge.

Dr. Lazar is always patient, thorough and kind. Dr. Lazar always listens to your concerns and answers any and all questions you may have. He is brilliant and makes sure you have a full understanding of your condition/symptoms and any tests or procedures as well as medications you may need. I have never left his office unsure, confused or wanting further information. Dr. Lazar has an incredible sense of humor and brightens your heart in so many ways! I know I am in his good hands always.
