      I have found Dr. Lala and his staff to be extremely caring and efficient. Dr. Lala is an outstanding doctor and has never rushed my appointments with him. He has always taken the time to patiently listen and thoroughly answers any questions that I have. I credit him with greatly improving my health. I will soon be moving out of state and would consider traveling to California for medical care from Dr. Lala if the need ever arises. I have complete trust in him and the treatment he provides.

      Dr Lala is by far the best pain management doctor I have seen. He takes his time, is NOT a drug pusher, and has a genuine concern for his patients. Awesome...just a natural good feeling with this doctor.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
