sister of a patient

Dr Labar treated my brother many years ago, for epilepsy, he had surgery, it was a success story, my brother has been able to enjoy life because Dr. Labar and his team did an excellent job. I am so glad I get to thank him for this. His bed side manner were excellent, he was very patient and listened and calmed our fears. God bless you.

Review on Doctor's office

The nursing staff at D. Labars office need training in how to treat the patient. Residents and RN's have aggravated the situations to the point that I could no longer deal with them. They have shown lack of understanding toward me during a very difficult time. The social worker is totally useless and should not be a social worker; she is not interested in any problems and only offers a small window of time to talk to her. She also did not read the background file on me.. The residents did not read my file before meeting with me while I was in the hospital and implied that I was stupid after I had had many seizures and was without medication. The doctors are wonderful but the staff needs training!!!
