I transferred to this practice from my first obgyn in my 2nd trimester. The care is warm, personal, and consistent. Dr. Lackore takes a lot of time to talk things out and the staff is always great, especially if have questions. Even with all the time they take with you, I've never waited to see anyone that long. I highly recommend everyone here.

I recently had a partial laparoscopic hysterectomy with my new favorite doctor, Dr. Lackore. I suspected before I met with him that I was in need of surgery, and after he thoroughly explained all of my options, I chose surgery. The appointment scheduling, the waiting room, time, the nurses and all staff were fabulous. My surgery went perfectly and now, 2 follow up visits later, I am feeling great and I owe so much of that to Dr. Lackore. All of his pre-op and post-op instructions were spot on, and I have not had one question, issue, or complication because he is so thorough. I highly recommend him for not only his years of medical experience but for his tremendous bedside manner and dedication to what he clearly loves to do. His passion for his profession is evident. Many thanks, Dr. Lackore!

I do think that Lackore will take good care of you in the delivery room. However, I had a HORRIBLE experience with this practice otherwise. The wait times are forever, you never see an actual doctor, the wait room is overcrowded with limited seating, and the T.V. is always blaring so loud. I got MRSA either from the hospital or this facility (which isn't the cleanest), and I found out Lackore told the nurse practitioner not to inform me of the results. I ended up getting 2 more infections

Absolutely the best doctor and staff I have ever had. Dr. Lackore takes his time with each patient and is very meticulous with what needs to be done. He has a great positive attitude! He reassured me at times I was upset and got to the bottom of my situation to make me the most comfortable I could be. I wish every doctor was as sympathetic and caring. The office staff in my eyes makes the office. Tara goes above and beyond her call to make things as comfortable and seamless as possible. ??

I have been a patient of Dr Lackore since I was born; he delivered me. It’s always a pleasure seeing him and his extenders, however, the clinical staff is neither efficient nor caring and therefore I have transferred my care elsewhere.

Dr. Lackore is great. I am so pleased with his patience and guidance. Ultimately had to have surgery and he did a wonderful job. Always there to ask questions and is very calming to talk to.

Dr. Lackore was recommended by a friend after I saw another OBGYN who didn't seem concerned with my issues. Dr. Lackore was very responsive and proactive. I didn't have to "sell" him on looking into things further. Turns out I did have an issue and Dr. Lackore was very thorough explaining what my options were and performed the necessary procedure. I'm feeling so much better and thankful to have my issue resolved.

I do not think I will be able to put it into words how overjoyed I am about my experience with Dr. Lackore. I had a LAVH about 3 weeks ago, and honestly I have to say it was the best choice I made. Dr Lackore is very thorough and detailed in his findings, diagnosis, and recommendations. He answers questions in a relaxed manner, which made me feel "special", as if he wasn't rushed to get to the next room and I was his main priority that day. In my opinion he is the best OB/GYN I have had.

Amazing! The best care and staff I have ever received. He knew exactly what to do and when to do it. I had been to many area Gyn and he was by far the most caring, and very willing to help me with all decisions and doing things on the appropriate timing. I adore everyone at his office and am so thankful to have such a caring, wonderful person that actually took the time to help me and get my life back to normal again. Dr. Lackore will always be a hero to my family and I!

I have watched all three of my sisters give birth. One was before me and two were after me. None of them had the experience I had. I told Dr. Lackore that I wanted to do everything possible to avoid a C-Section, and he made that happen! THANK YOU!

Dr Lackore and his office staff are compassionate in their practice. The staff has been with Dr Lackore for over 15 years and treat you like family. Dr Lackore has delivered my children and now see them for their gyn needs. I recently had a hysterectomy, and both the office and Dr Lackore set my expectations precisely with every step of the way. My Children see the nurse practitioner who is also excellent. I highly recommend this practice for all ages of females. They are the BEST
