Patient Comments (1)
in Miami, FL |
I was referred to see Dr Lara for follow-up on abdominal pain. He looked at the exams results and told me right away, I was in the wrong specialist as I needed to see an Urologist (which it was already ruled out). He ordered a CTScan for further evaluation and a colonoscopy, just because I am 50, although I had one done 3 years prior. Although Physicians relay on exams and studies to provide an accurate diagnosis, Dr Lara didn't gave me the confidence of knowing what he was doing. Money lost!
