Dr. Lako and his staff are the best. They are polite and listen to your requests. Even though I was uptight about some very sensitive toes, they were extra careful to make sure I was comfortable. Although you meet some doctors and nurses that are pretty dour, these guy are friendly and get you to relax. A+

I've been seeing Dr. Lako for 12+ years. He's great. I usually see him in his Warner Robins office. This is the first time I've seen him in the Macon office. The reseptionist in the Macon office is HORRIBLE! She's rude. She should be fired!

Dr. Lako removed bunions from both my feet. I am so pleased with the results. In a matter of 7 months (total time with each foot done 4 mos apart) I finally feel relief. His staff are very professional and helpful. I would highly recommend him for any foot/ankle needs.

Dr. Lako saved my life! He is an excellent doctor because he cares about the person. He not only TEACH YOU ABOUT THE PROBLEM YOU COME INTO HIS OFFICE WITH. HE EXAMINE THE BODY AND DISCUSS WHAT HE THINK WILL BE APPROPRIATE FOR YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES. IN MY CASE HE SAW I WAS OVER WEIGHT AND TALKED WITH ME AND ASKED IF HE COULD HELP. THE FIRST TIME HE MENTION WEIGHT I DIDNT WANT TO HEAR, MY FOOT WAS HURTING I WANTED ANOTHER SHOT! FINALLY HE SPOKE OUT AND I LISTEN NOW I'M 75LBS LIGHTER WITH NO FOOT PAIN

I had bunion surgery on my right foot about 3 years ago. Dr Lako’s technique and skill lead to a great outcome for my surgery. Yes, I would recommend him to accomplish surgery for any family member or freind. My recovery time was less than 3 months and the pain was lower than I expected. Bottom line I would have Dr Lako do my next foot surgery if I ever need one.

I have been going to Dr Lako ever since I got diabetes and had to have toenails removed. I have always been treated with the utmost concern and respect. He has a great personality and it is always a pleasure to make my visit. I would highly recommend Dr Lake for all foot and ankle care.

After a bad diabetic toenail trim experience with his partner Dr. Ye, I saw Dr.Lako. He was unable to diagnose a common case of gout. My Primary Care Physician did the diagnosis. Strike 3 came when my nails were beginning to lift from the skin behind them. I told him what I was using and it was working. He trimmed one nail that was very bad and told me to not use the med. I stopped and it instantly got worse. I went back to it and it cured the problem. I would not recommend either doctor.

My experience with Dr Lako is I never met him. My brother had out patient surgery in Macon on his left foot. He had a tumor. My brother said it would take 30-45 minutes to remove the tumor. It did take around 45 minutes but when he was in recovery we were told that the dr never comes out and tells his patients how the surgery went , he just immediately goes to the next patient. The nurse said the he would give you a call this afternoon. It's almost 9:00 pm and no call. Don't understand this

I would not refer Dr.Lako to anyone else.I felt as though I was at a weight lost session, not a dr.appointment,been told about weight lost,but not in that manner.Didn't feel as though I achieved anything to help my physical condition.Waste of time and money.
