Specialties

Dr. Andrew E Lazar has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

Five Stars

DR. Lazar's treatment of my in-laws has been highly competent, compassionate and professional. He always gives us his time and shares reasons for his directions and conclusions and is sensitive to the difficulties of elderly people dealing with the medical system. His office set-up is "no-frills," but I see this as a plus, since his receptionist/assistant therefore knows and cares about his patients as much as he does (less possibility of miscommunication and clerical errors). I recommend him highly.

Another failer as an MD

Originally I liked Dr. Lazar. Sadly his front desk has the personality of a toliet bowl. His hours are not flexible and his follow up was very sad considering I am in the health field and would never consider acting this way in my profession and from any of my girls or Doctors. I am currently seeking a proactive Dr. that actually likes to treat patients:(
