Great Doctor! Must see her for Obstetric and Gyn Care..., Apr 11, 2013
She is compassionate and competent. I recommend her to all of my friends. She takes time to answer my questions. Her staff is caring and helpful. I love her PA and nurse practitioner. I am so lucky to have found her.
I would not recommend her to a friend. Get a second opinion..., Apr 7, 2013
I would not recommend her to a friend. She over-diagnoses and over-treats. Make sure you get a second opinion to be certain of the diagnosis before you commit to treatment. Thank you very much and that is all I am going to say...
Mislead about insurance co-pay and had to pay $350..., Apr 5, 2013
Went in for a mole consultation and got what I thought was included in my $40 co-pay (3 mole tests). 4 of their staff (including Dr. Fichtel) told me that the mole tests were "covered by insurance". Ended up getting a $350 bill for the testing. The situation went downhill from there...
Very pleasant with my 10 y/o son. Will be back.................., Mar 6, 2013
Dr. Lazar was very attentive to my 10yr old son. He made a point to be funny with him so he would become more comfortable. He was very thorough and his office staff was very pleasant too. Love the playroom!
Unfortunately, I can't recommend her. Lacks privacy sensitivity!..., Feb 6, 2013
I saw this doctor once. Her office is very small which would be fine, except while I was there in the waiting room, I could hear everything she was saying during her phone conversation with the insurance company or someone like that. This included the patient's i.d. number, medical problems, lab report results, etc. I couldn't believe it! Doesn't this violate HIPPA laws?? She was using a phone in the front reception area but could prevent this by having a phone in back part of office. Toward the end of our appt., I told her I was concerned about her making calls from phone in front, and I could hear everything she was discussing about a patient. Instead of taking responsibility for the situation, she blamed it on her office, other patients, and then me. She said that that unfortunately she has a small office; that sometimes the reception door gets left open when patients walk in; and that most patients aren't listening for something like that. LOL, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!! She may be a good doctor regarding a broken bones and such (I don't know), but she is clueless about protecting patient privacy! No thanks!
