Ms

Dr. Lazzaro is an extremely caring surgeon who took time to make me comfortable. He was readily available to answer any and all questions post operatively and called me regularly to see that I was ok. I was very surprised that he took the time to do this and I was grateful as it relieved many of my post operative concerns.
