Dr. Lacks has been my Doctor for the past 12 years. She is by far the best Doctor one can hope for. She is very compassionate, very knowledgeable, very thoughtful and friendly.
Washington, DC |
Dr. Lacks is superb! - among the two or three best doctors I've ever seen. She recently called me to discuss some findings she had determined were different than what another doctor in a related field told me they were -- with consequences for what drug I take. Dr. Lacks spent more than 30 mins on the phone, answering questions. She advised me what time slot to request for my next appointment, to get the most time for discussion. Incredibly thorough and caring. Staff is super about followup.

Because she really cares for her patients. She take time to talk to them and answer their questions. I am being treated for Lupus. She return your calls and communicate with my other doctors. she loves her job and has a very friendly and helpful staff. My experience with her has been very good. when other health issues arise she only recommends the very best doctors. I would recommend her to anyone who need a good Doctor in her field.
