Dr Lax greeted us in the waiting room, took my complete medical and personal history, reviewed my test results, did a thorough exam and then too the time to explain my options. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Lax is, in my view, a rare find. Not only a highly competent cardiologist, but also a highly competent human being. Smart and kind, here is a doc who really knows his stuff; truly cares about his patents; and--miracle of miracles in today's world!--values and fosters good communication. He listens and explains very well. Plus, he's accessible, goes the extra mile, and does what he says he will. I'm so grateful to have found Dr. Lax's good hands into which to place my dad's cardiac care!
Dr. Lax is wonderful! He is very analytical, thorough, a great listener, and eager to solve difficult and unseeingly unsolvable problems and conditions. Dr Lax always makes the time to call and talk over any worries or questions with me and truly cares about his patients...very kind, caring, and intelligent. Highly recommend!
