Las Cruces, NM |
My experience with Dr Lara has been very positive. Professional yet personable, knowledgable and attentive.
in Carlsbad, NM |
Dr. Lara has performed several surgeries on me in the last 5 years, and I have been very pleased with his bedside manner, professionalism, knowledge, and how well he explains things. He has given me all facts, and possible complications or outcomes. Two of my surgeries were emergencies, and I had to be transferred from another hospital to his hospital.

Dr. Lara and his team has perfectly prepared and performed the gastric sleeve surgery on me February 8, 2016. He has been considerate and genuine in his care for me. I went to work one week after my surgery and have been able to take charge of my health. I am so thankful to have gone with him, to have a new self-confidence, to continue in success while losing and gaining a new life back. I wish I had done it 15-20 years ago.

Dr Lara has a great bed side manner and took extra time to explained all the details of my surgery. He ensured that I was entirely at ease prior to my surgery. I highly recommend this doctor.
