Dr. Lazarre is the most genuine doctor I have ever met. She took ample time at my appointment to understand my situation, ask questions, and carefully think and determine my specific care. If I did not understand something, she explained until I did and repeatedly asked throughout the appointment if I had questions. Dr. Lazarre was also very organized in her notes and a plan of action for my concussion recovery. I left my appointment with a sense of relief and without a single complaint.

She actually cares. She takes time to answer your questions and will explain meds an why you need them along with side effects. She truly cares about her patients. I was ready to say the heck with it an throw in the towel because I have tried everything and she was there to give me hope. I have way to many great things to say an not enough characters to list them all. I will recommend her to anyone. Happy I found her!!!!

Dr Lazarre is amazing! She takes her time to listen to you, does a very thorough exam& doesn't give up on you when what is wrong isn't an obvious issue. She has pushed my insurance K the hospital to get testing done quickly, been very knowledgeable & even calls me personally with my test results! She has been the best Neurologist I have ever been to or met & I have been a nurse for 12 years so I am very picky. She explains any medications & why I need them & the side effects. Highly recommend!!
