in East Kingston, NH 03827 |
My recent visit with Dr. Lauze was thorough, professional and specific. She asked questions about my specific symptoms and recommended labs as well as a cat scan to help rule out any underlying causes of my headaches. Very courteous and professional I would definitely refer family and friends to her.

This was my 3rd appointment with her following a concussion in 2015. During the first 2 appointments, her assessment, diagnostics ordered (MRI) and treatment offered were fair. However, this most recent appointment was different wherein she asked me questions only, did not do a physical examination and proceeded to suggest medication, of which I refused. She then suggested the "Bio-feedback Method". That someone would be in touch to schedule this appt., which never happened.
in Exeter, NH |
I have had two appointments with Dr. Lauze. The first time was for an E.M.G. on my paralyzed leg where she found a trouble spot. After many other appointments and tests, I decided to see her again. She spent the whole appointment staring into the computer screen with little to say. She ordered a Bone Scan. Bone scan done, she dropped me like a rock! I did not even have an out briefing with her. I'm sure the hospital was glad to use their scanner. I say, run fast and run far!!!
in Strafford, NH |
Dr. Lauze listen's intently to you during your time allotted with her, she has 0 distractions in her immaculately clean and organized environment. She is thorough and cares about her clients. I've been very happy with her as my neurologist and trust her 100%. I would highly recommend her.
