One helluva person and an exceptional doctor. Truly one of the best doctors in NYC. All doctors should be so gifted, kind and compassionate as Dr. James Lax---and a good sense of humor as well, if you know how to get it out of him. Medical Royalty is how he should be recognized. A very carry doctor. Bravo, say I!
