Dr. Lamar performed gastric surgery on me and he did an excellent job. I was totally prepared by him and his staff, and everything went well. I have already recommended him to others and they have also been satisfied.

Horrible bedside manner. Doesn't listen to his patients. Causes more bad than good with his surgeries. I've had problems ever since. What's worse is that he just doesn't care. He doesn't answer questions. Makes you feel like less than a human being.
