Patient Reviews ? Write a Review
I wish I had read the reviews on this doctor before making my appointment. He was not helpful at all disagreed with everything I had to say concerning MY health like he lives in my body and knows what I go through. Because I wouldn't go on the medication he was pushing,as I am allergic to it, he decided that I had a placebo issue with meds and I only "thought" I was allergic. When I argued with that one, he said I was like his wife who refused to take what she needed from fear. I kept saying I was allergic and he started waving his arms erratically and yelling at me. I finally had enough and got up told him off and left. He is not a Dr that cares and anyone who says otherwise must be a friend of his although how that man would have friends or better yet a wife is beyond me. Do yourself a huge emotional favor don't go see him.
I found Dr. Lazarus to be quite uncaring and arrogant. He was very short with me when I asked questions about my neuropathy. He administered a nerve test on my legs and when I moaned due to the pain he got very annoyed with me and showed no sympathy or compassion. As I read all the other negative comments I have to concur with most of them as I received pretty much the same treatment from him. He needs to really take a class on being a people person and patient courtesy.
I have found that the office staff is wonderful in returing your calls promptly, Dr. Lazarus is a fantastic doctor. He know his stuff and has helped me through everthing with my back and afer open heart surgery pain. He listens to every word and is very courteous. He and Dr. Green are a great team. Both of them have always been there for me. I wouldn't be able to work without them. Dr. Lazarus is extremely one of the best Neurologist in Atlanta.
It is hard to get the front desk staff to answer the phone. The communication between nurse and patient could be better .
Been trying to get an appmt, all l get is and answering message that kelly is away from her desk. Old people like me don't Like machines, and get upset, blood pressure goes up. Is this dr. Lazarus worth the agrabation?
I am 24yr old all my life. I been seen doctors neurologist and Neurosurgeons all my life. I have a shunt. I'm very mild mannered. Let me say this do not use this doctor. He is very rude no compassion for the sick. He is in it for his money he will not let you explain how you feel he knows it all. He has no respect for his patients. He prescribe meds and you take them if you are not satisfied with the side effect he gets angry and he say something Negative. Save yourself from the headache. Always do background check on your Dr. He is not believe concerned about his patients. I have never ever met a doctor so arrogant and unprofessional in my entire life. Save your self.
Didn't even want to care for my mother on life supportWho in fact went home with the Lord the night he was to diagnose if she had a chanceInstead started preaching about Obama care and moneyWasted on helping people who can't afford hospital stay.He even made the nurse cry after hearing something like that before us saying our last goodbyesI forgive but cannot forget.
I read all the negative feedback, but decided to give him a try anyway. He was highly recommended by other doctors. He's very impatient. He doesn't let you get your whole question out before he's cutting you off. And, worst of all, he left in the middle of the visit! I thought he was going to get something. Then, after about 20 minutes of waiting, the nurse came in with my final paperwork. I asked if the doctor was coming back since we were finished, and she said he was pressed for time. Sigh.
Let me tell you, this doctor is worth the wait! Not only is he the most intelligent man I have ever encountered, but he is the most handsome and caring doctor I have ever been to! The nursing staff is beyond sensational!! Very nice ladies and funny too! :) The office is beautiful, the hardwood floors look so nice! The girl checking me in was so sweet, she always has a smile on her face! And when I got lost, I called the office and they promptly answered and gave me directions and I made it to my appt. about 10 minutes late, but they STILL saw me, how nice!? Love it Love it Love it!!!!!!!!!
I am the daughter of a stroke victim, just in the hospital after waiting for this doctor for now 2 days. He has still not appeared. Where are you Dr. Lazurus? Are you that apathetic? Retire!!! Get out of this practice. This family will be filing a medical grievance against you.
Took my daughter there because of her severe migraines. Other than the PA Wallace Green, I find no redeeming qualities in this practice. The staff is very uncaring and won't even answer the phones. Call backs take 24 hours. Nurses act as though you are faking illness and question when you ask for excuses for missing work. Dr. Lazarus is a big old nothing. He has NO bedside manner. He's lazy acting, and can't even talk to you without saying "uh" every other word. You ask him about specific opinions on treatments and he will not commit to anything. Does not accept any possibilities of what could be causing the migraine. It's his diagnosis and no possibility that he might be missing anything.
Poor bedside manners. Unconcerned. Great in taking advantage of your insurance. Worst Doctor that I have ever been to. If you like him, then something is wrong with you too!
you wouldn't want to hear what I really think!!!
Dr. Lazarus is the most condescending and arrogant physician that I have EVER encountered! He seems to exhibit a complete lack of concern for his patients. In an effort to quickly dismiss me, he seemed unwilling to let me voice my concerns or ask questions pertaining to my condition. When the first medication he prescribed proved to be ineffective, he prescribed another medication which, had I taken it, could have had a serious interaction with the medication I am taking for my heart rhythm disorder. My cardiologist, pharmacist, and Health Insurance Company alerted me to the danger of this combination of drugs. Dr. Lazarus should have been fully aware of this drug interaction since each patient must provide a list of current medications at EACH office visit.To add insult to injury, I went through two office visits before he bothered to read and interpret my MRI. I consider this highly unprofessional!
Crude and uncaring. Does not pay attention-too many mistakes-appears to treat others rudely as well.
Worst doctor I have ever seen. Hey will find any way to throw you out after the first time of seeing you if he doesn't like something about you. That was my experience! That's what he did to me cause I am young with chronic pain and he decided he wanted to label me an addict and i didn't write something down BUT I TOLD HIM THE MEDICINE MANY TIMES! AND HE IS TOO STUPID TO REMEMBER! HE IS MEAN AND SO IS HIS STAFF > RETIRE OLD MAN!
Due to my inability to see my regular neurologist at Emory on a timly basis. I went to see Dr. Lazarus. WRONG, with very little questioning or examination, he declared I had Parkinson's and ordered an MRI. I was later told an MRI is not a tool for detecting Parkinson's, I suspect he has an intrest in the lab. Parkinson's had previously been ruled out by a neurologist at Emory who has been publishd in medical journals regarding Parkinson's who ruled it out in my case. Dr. Lazarus spent very little time with me (10 minutes), office cleanliness was poor.
He is a joke!!! Don't waste your time.
I have been a patient of Dr Lazarus for the past year due to my insurance. Each time I see the doctor I bring my husband with me, when the doctor finally comes into the exam room, he basically ignores me and asks all the questions to my husband. Also the Dr. often goes on about how I am not as bad as other patients, and how he would handle my insurance company in his rambling way. Often he does not even examine or touch me at all. Exam rooms are cold in the winter months (even with the space heaters in each) and hot in the summer. Took the staff 11 months into 2009 to remove 2008 calendars taped to the cabinets.
i think he needs to have his urin tested
If you care about receiving the proper health care and good customer service, DO NOT go to this office! Kenneth Lazurus should be striped of the title, physician. Lazurus lacked professionalism, good hygiene (esp. for a dr.), and good customer service. On my visit, he babbled on about conditions, diseases, and other patient issues that did not concern or relate to me. He used inappropiate language and failed to introduce his intern (poor guy!) He looses track of time (I had to wait 2hs past my appt. time). Also his nursing staff is EXTREMELY unprofessional. The office looks and smells run down (there were misquitos in the restroom). Also, his staff gave some of my medical documents to another patient ( the patient unknowingly took it home!) I honestly think that Lazarus needs to seek mental assistance( Maybe his workload has caught up with him). I would not refer Lazarus to anyone! I agree he is a QUACK, sorry, truth hurts but it benifits others in this case.
Three words: QUACK, QUACK, QUACK! I am so disappointed in this doctor, that I get upset when I hear his name. He is mean spirited and uncaring. His staff is unprofessional and deserve him as a boss.
Because there are so few neurologists on the southside, Dr. Lazarus is overbooked, which means you spend a very long time in the waiting room. Plan for 2-3 hours and bring something to do. He took his time with me, listened and explained things well when I asked questions. He is particular about the way he likes things to be done and I feel like he is watching out for my best interests and taking good care of me.
After waiting nearly 3 hours, I finally saw Dr. Lazarus. During my 5 minute visit, I felt he was virtually unsympathetic with my illness and spent most of my time telling me about people he knew with far more debilitating symptoms than mine. I was extremely disappointed with his general non-caring attitude toward both me and my condition. He made me feel I was not worth spending his time on when there were patients with much worse syptoms that needed his attention.
I have terrible migraine headaches and have for over twenty years. I have been to about 8 different neurologists and Dr. Lazarus is the one who has done the most for me. Good listener as well. Highly recommend
