Dr Lahr removed almost all of my colon, and I later found out it was not necessary .

One Star

while this man may have good technical skills as a surgeon he has ZERO ability to effectively communicate with the patient and the family. We felt like he was trying to hide something. With over 15 days in the hospital, we saw him only twice. He may have been there other times, but family members were with our patient almost 24/7 during the entire hospital stay. It appears that this man has very little concern or respect for the patient and family, or, he is so arrogant that he doesn't care about our opinions. We would never recommend Dr. Lahr to ANYONE unless there is no other alternative. Our entire experience in dealing with the care of an elderly patient regarding major surgery (large cancerous tumor and entire colon removed) was made much more difficult and stressful than necessary because we could never get communications from the doctor. This problem carried over to other medical professionals dealing with Dr. Lahr as well. He failed to provide orders for the hospital staff when needed and failed to provide clear orders or instructions for the post-surgery therapists on how to treat the patient. The result has been two post surgery visits at the hospital to treat infection of the incision and other issues. In addition, the patient has been subjected to significant uninsured medical expenses as a direct result of the doctor's failure to provide orders timely, to communicate with staff, other health care provides and the patient/family, and perhaps even due to improper surgical procedures.

Make sure you know what you are getting into first. --But now the damage is done.

I was just too trusting. I believed that when a doctor told me something, it was gospel. Do yourself a favor, please get a second opinion, maybe even a third. After my surgery my health in that area has continually gotten worse. My quality of life will never be the same.

I was so pleased with Dr. Lahr in the professional manner he treated me. While there are many things I could write about Dr. Lahr, I am convinced he is highly trained, sensitive, and possesses the highest attributes of a medical specialist. I highly recommend Dr. Lahr to those who need his specialty. His staff was courteous and attentive to me.
