Great doctor would highly recommend him. Very concerned about me as a patient and not a number. Very informed and up to date.

Dr. Lac recognized that a heart problem - rather than a kidney problem - was the source of significant edema following my heart valve replacement surgery in 2015. His conclusion was confirmed by a cardiologist which led to a second heart surgery (successful). In the 14 months since then, Dr. Lac has helped me overcome gout and a kidney stone, and take the proper medication to prevent recurrence. My kidney function is now normal. Dr. Lac's competence and kindness are invaluable to me.

My wife and I found Dr. Lac to be very knowledgeable and helpful. We have great confidence in him and highly recommend him.
We have never met but I have listened to a recording of my mother's visits. I appreciated how thorough and detailed Dr. Lac's explanations were. As a nurse, I understand the challenge of putting complex renal issues into layman's terms, but he did a great job. He was patient with all of her questions, and reviewed labs, diagnostic results, diet, medications, and a plan for future care. I am comforted knowing he is taking care of my mother. Thank you.

I was referred to Dr. Lac by my primary Dr for chronic kidney disease. Dr. Lac explained my condition, the possible cause, and how to control it. He spent the time with me to reassure me that my condition was moderate. He was thorough and very personable. I would highly recommend Dr. Lac.
