Dr. Lazar spends as much time with patients as she needs to get an accurate diagnosis-she doesn't throw a prescription at you and tell you to call back if you don't get better. I went to my family doctor's office 4 times for the same problem - each time seeing a different doctor and none of them did what Dr. Lazar did. Dr. Lazar took down the history of my problem and the medications I had taken for it, scoped my sinus cavity, took a culture, sent me for a sinus MRI, and referred me to see the allergist (part of her practice), and promised me she would get to the bottom of my endlessly ongoing problem. Between her and Dr. Comacho (allergist), my allergies were, are continue to be, controlled, and the infections that had taken hold were cleared…I'm happy that I found Dr. Lazar, am willing to wait if necessary, and I know I'm receiving excellent care from her.

We really loved Dr. Lazar. My daughter had her adenoid removed and Dr. Lazar was great with her. She even made time for my daughter when she started having headaches a few days later - they took her right in the office. All the office staff is great and warm. We never had a problem scheduling the surgery like some other reviews that I have read. You have to leave a message, but the woman calls back the same day. Understandable because she is busy scheduling for all the doctors there and she is only one person. Definitely and highly recommended.

Dr. Lazar is very professional, attentive, helpful, and thorough. She makes you feel at ease and explains everything clearly to you. Informs you what options you have and what her recommendations are. I needed a medication change, and she herself called to talk to me which doctors usually never do, they get the nurses. I am usually hard to please. Very impressed by her. Thanks Dr. Lazar!!

Dr. Lazar is amazingly compassionate with her patients. She actually examine my child in the middle of the night when I did not receive the necessary medical attention warranted at the pediatric emergency department. Truly a one-of-a kind physician who is well-respected by peers and puts her patients' interests before all else. Thank you for taking such good care of our family!
