Thorough, knowledgable, kind, careful, and patient.

My former excellent Bay Area physician having retired, I was recommended to Dr. Lake by several nurses at Alta Summit hospital, each of whom had selected Dr. Lake as their personal physician. They told me that he was not only a superb doctor, but also a caring and personal one, who hand-writes notes when he has new thoughts on their conditions. This given, I was eager to see Dr. Lake, and find him as courteous, careful and thorough -- taking his time to understand each possible problem or condition -- as he was described. I also admired his broad concern with the environment when he mildly (not forcefully) suggested that I not use antibiotics for a condition which, indeed, remitted without them.

An outstanding doctor

Dr. Lake is great. He is professional and gives great care. But, he is also an "old fashioned" doctor who will make time to see you and give you tryly personal care. He's great.
