Dr. Lakow has an excellent "bedside manner". He was patient, respectful, personable and above all knowledgeable and professional. There isn't much else anyone could require from a Doctor of any type. I was extremely satisfied with the results of my visit. I left with a feeling I was listened to and understood his diagnosis completely. I would have no reservations what so ever recommending him to anyone. He is in my opinion, an asset to this Cardiology Group. Thank you Dr. Lakow.

Dr. Lakow has been my cardiologist for almost 10 years. He is a very caring and personable doctor and has always put me at ease when seeing him. He explains things in a way that I can understand. I recently had a change in my heart condition and he was very reassuring and took the time to explain everything to me and my wife and answered all of our questions.

Dr. Lakow takes the time to listen to my concerns and he explains things until he is sure I understand. He cares about his patients and makes a point to get treatments from the best specialists when he discovers something that is not in his field.

I have been going to Dr. Lakow since I moved to Lake Worth 9 years ago. I had had a heart attack before moving to Florida. Dr. Lakow was recommended by a friend and I couldn't be more satisfied. He does a great job of letting me know where I stand. Dr. Lakow has already cut off a second heart attack by early detection and action by him and his team. He and his staff are always cordial. I believe he truly knows what he is doing. I get a quick response to any contact I have with them, his assistant Joann is the best and sees that my questions are rapidly answered whether asked by phone or the patient portal. And he gets my sense of humor or at least pretends to.
