Dr. Lakata has been my dr for many years! I couldn't imagine seeing anyone else. I have had the strangest medical issues and he has always taken such wonderful care of me. He is patient, kind and understanding. He has gone out of his way to see me early in the morning because of my crazy schedule. I refer him to anyone looking for a terrific health care provider.

Dr.L is just plain awesome. He has been our MD for 7 of our family members. I was the first to see him of our family after Dr. Guillard left and Dr. L took over his patients.I have been seeing him over 20 yrs ! He is kind, responsive, has the added education of being a pharmacist as well. As an RN of 35 yrs I would highly recommend Dr L. He is prompt with phone call returns, genuinely cares about his patients and will forever be my Internal Med doc. He communicates well with my other physicians
