So this 'doctor' assumed I had an eating disorder because I was slightly underweight, actually I am being treated for leukemia, but she didn't even take my history before making this assumption, just looked at my weight! She didn't even spend 2 mins with me before assuming all this. Oh and she attend a Caribbean medical school which is what Americans do when they can't get in stateside, not a real MD imo.

I find Dr. Lazaravic to be very comforting and effective. Her approach is casual and slow, creating a very open environment, free of judgement. She challenges me to understand myself and I feel like we work as a team. I would recommend Dr. Lazaravic to those who require supportive therapy and aren't afraid to put work into their progress.

I really found this psychiatrist VERY difficult and I was trying to give her the benefit of the doubt. Even though, outwardly, she seemed friendly, in conversation I constantly had the impression of superiority, as if I was being talked-down to, just because I was a patient, not a doctor. I heard "entitlement" to respect, which is, of course, earned, not conferred by an M.D. certificate. I also noticed an unwillingness to think about altenative medications. The whole experience was unpleasant.

I have been a patient of Dr. Lazarevic's for about a year now. During that time I have found her to be professional, flexible and most importantly a great resource for me and my treatment. She never hesitates to schedule appointments on short notice and her administrative service is also very easy to use. As a doctor she is engaging, friendly and warm. Lastly, there has never been a time when I have felt uncomfortable, rushed or felt like she wasn't giving me 100% of her energy and attention.

I was very pleased to find Dr. L, as she is direct and thoughtful in her approach. I immediately felt comfortable with her, and look forward to working with her.

I saw the doctor for depression and expressly told her I did not want SSRIs because of ED problems. She wrote out a prescription for a medication that contained serotonin. During the appointment, she was not listening closely and rather wanted to show off what she thought she knew. I also found her manner sharp and certainly did not have, what I would call, a good bedside manner. She is one of many psychiatrists I have seen over the years and I would rank her at/near the bottom.
