I was very dissatisfied with my whole experience with PBMS and Dr. Lakow, when I had an eco-cardiogram and had to wait 8 days for the results while I was having chest pains the whole time. I kept calling for the results and got nothing but excuses and the office would never let me speak to Dr. Lakow. They just didn't care ! Stay away if you value your health.
