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!

My entire family (2 adults/4 children) sees Dr. Lazar for different issues for the past 15 years. She takes the time to listen to the patient, explains in detail what the problem is and recommended treatments. GREAT with children!

Dr. Lazar has been my ENT for six years. She is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. She asks questions and listens to mine. She did my second sinus surgery- she specializes in corrective surgery, which I needed. She has always been helpful in finding ways for me to manage my chronic allergies and acid reflux disease. I have been recommending her for years because she is excellent. Every time I mention her name to another doctor, they all say the same thing- "Oh, she is good!" I cannot say enough good things about how well she does her job- I am very, very happy with the results of my surgery and her abilities as a doctor.

Dr. Lazar was the only doctor who properly diagnosed my daughter's sinus issue. From our first appointment, Dr. Lazar had a well thought out plan to relieve the tremendous headaches that were found to be from a sinus condition. Dr. Lazar is extremely competent, professional and takes the time to explain in terms a patient could understand. She is the BEST ENT out there and I would recommend her to all my family and friends. Her staff was very helpful and friendly.

From the moment I entered the waiting area I felt very comfortable. The receptionist, Desiree, was courteous and friendly. After a short wait I was taken into an exam room by Dr. Lazar's nurse. She was very nice and thorough. Dr. Lazar came in a few minutes later. She spent as much time with as needed. Her diagnosis was confirmed by CT Scan and surgery was decided upon. She is a lovely, kind Doctor, which are hard to come by. The surgery was a big success. I have had 3 followup visits and I'm feeling great. Thank you Dr. Lazar and staff.

Dr. Lazar is amazing! I had my thyroid out and was in absolutyl NO pain and my scar is less than 1 inch. Follow up visits have been great and infomative..her patience, knowledge and understanding are amazing and I would highly recomend her.I was very, very satisfied with my visit here. I got totally informed and the level of care was fantastic. I've never seen anyone who is more respected by their staff. The entire staff only had great things to say about working there, and it made me want to return all the more. I felt that they really valued my health and happiness because they followed up even after my appointment just to check up on me. It was such a nice gesture that made a huge difference. There was no annoying music playing while I waited or during my visit. I appreciated that they didn't have that typical elevator music on. I always have the best experience every time I have an appointment here. Although I have not had much to complain about, I have noticed that they strongly adhere to the customer is always right policy and if anything goes wrong make every effort to correct the situation.

Dr. Lazar is patient compassionate and knowledgeable. After 20 years of recurrent sinusitis 8-10 rounds of antibiotics each year & 3 previous surgeries SHE SOLVED THE PROBLEM. Unlike the 3 previous surgeries I had no post-op complications. Surgery was 7 months ago: no infections no more antibiotics no more snoring --I can breathe. She is a goddess!!

After suffering through years of chronic sinus headaches multiple sinus infections each years requiring weeks of antibiotics and seeing several ENT specialist in over a decade I count my lucky stars I found Dr. Amy Lazar. She performed sinus surgery which allows me to breath through my nose for the first ever (in 5 decades) but most of all I no longer have the chronic sinus headaches. She is kind and extremely knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who suffers from sinus problems. The surgery itsef was a piece of cake with virtual immediate recovery. If only I had become her patient years ago!
