Dr. Lakow was on call when I had an emergency stay in the Hospital. I was so grateful that he was. My blood pressure was 210/110 and the first thing he did when he met me was make me laugh. Just what my worried /weary body needed. So when it came time for follow up I cancelled my regular cardiologist and started as a new patient with Dr. Lakow. Its been several years now and he has continued to be thorough, clear, compassionate and funny. My husband now sees him and I tell anyone who is unhappy with their cardio or just need another opinion see him. Bedside manner and clarity can't be beat!

Dr. Lakow is such a wonderful, caring doctor. He takes his time in explaining answers to all my questions and puts me at ease. His staff is just as wonderful as he is. His medical assistant Joann is always ready to answer questions and when I have to leave a message she returns my call promptly. If anyone is in need of a good cardiologist you can’t go wrong with Dr. Lakow and his staff.

As always, good. I am usually nervous when he first enters the room but he has a way of calming me down. He takes the time I need to answer my questions, I don’t feel rushed. I have in the past and will continue to recommend Dr. Lakow to anyone who asks me.

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.
