My 10 yrs old son had ear infection with fluid behind his eardrum - Dr. Lazor prescribed antibiotic for the first visit. All the follow - ups meetings over the course of 6 months, he kept on saying " looks good", it would heal, in the meantime, all the audio test showed no significant improvement. Today, my son would have to do an operation on his ear because the infection has eroded his eardrum, and his hearing may not be normal again. Dr. Lazor called me last week to tell me that the problem should have been taken care last year - by putting a tube to drain the fluid. A simple procedure back then now becomes a bigger problem - Is that a negligence ?!!
My daughter had a severe sore throat with unknown cause. We went to ER, saw other ENT doctor... on antibiotic for over 30 days. Nothing seemed working, as soon as antibiotic stops, pain comes back. We had an appointment with Dr. Lozor, hoping to get his expertise diagnose. We went to the office, saw Dr. Lozor for maybe 3mins in total. He looked at the throat, said it's Strap throat and left. The other time we were either with a nurse or another young lady, not sure who she was. We were sent to test for strep throat, came back negative. Instead of having further exams or tests by Dr. Lazor. The young lady came prescribed another antibiotic WITHOUT knowing what is the problem!!!! Dr. Lazor was nowhere to find. We spent about 5hrs there, got nothing diagnosed. We will have to go to ER again for further diagnose. This is not what a specialty doctor should treat his patient (show up 3min, said the wrong thing and never showed up again?!) Warn you if you have other choices, do not go there. This doctor's office is incompetent to treat patients.
I saw him for a deviated septum, which he performed a septoplasty for in order to treat. First off, he has no communications skills. When explaining what was wrong with me he used technical medical jargon with me and it didn't even occur to him that I wouldn't know what those terms mean. You think any person with any sort of tact and consideration, who deals with laymen every day of his life, would be able to communicate to them. The day of my surgery, I ran about 15-20 minutes late showing up. He didn't even greet me but said to me, "We'll probably have to cancel your surgery." Mind you, I was only late for the pre-operational things they needed to do, and my surgery wasn't supposed to start for another hour or so; so when I asked the nurses why he would say that when I wasn't even late, they said, "I think he wanted to leave early today." I was enraged by this careless display of self-centeredness on his part. The surgery went well and the recovery time was short. But when I went back to his office for him to take out my splints, a few days later I noticed my septum was shifted again. At my follow-up I asked him what was wrong, and he denied that anything was wrong. I told him that basically I thought my septum redeviated, but he didn't say anything. I went to another otolaryngologist for a second opinion, and they told me my septum was broadly deviated. So, he lied to me, AND he was a jerk. Also, his receptionists were very unwelcoming and rude on the phone. If you have the option, definitely go to another doctor. He's neither a good doctor nor a good person.
