INAPPROPRIATE
Washington, DC |
Extremely cordial and efficient service. Scheduling is a breeze and it is very easy to communicate with Dr. Lal. He is very thorough and very informative. The staff are also top notch and are great at what they do.

Took my stress, treadmill and echo test on a perfectly healthy heart based on nothing. Nothing came out and the tests done were totally unnecessary. I ended up paying a hefty bill. The one star is for ripping you off even if you are perfectly healthy and paying for expensive tests. Please beware and i hope this review make you think twice before going to him.

Dr. Lal was a pleasant surprise in this day and age of impersonal medicine. He was very proactive, and very encouraging. I would go to him anyday without a moment's doubt.
in Germantown, MD |
Dr. Lal serves with the heart of Heavenly substance. He is kind, humble and a great listener. He has a most impeccable bedside manner and is always willing to comfort those who are not in the best of health. He thinks of the whole person and puts himself in their place. He and his staff are so welcoming and Dr. Lal makes you feel as though his practice is his home. He never overwhelms an already challenging situation with medical promises or unethical behavior. He is just THE BEST...and MY HERO!
