Due to Coronavirus and possibility for infection, I was anxious about a visit to a medical facility due to potential for transmission of virus. I found Advocate facility (that I am familiar with for more than 10 years) satisfactory as I could see implementation of precautions.

July 31, 2020 2:05 PM

More than 10 years ago I searched for a provider to become my PCP. My criteria was; education/training, age (younger than myself so relation had potential to continue long-term, I'm a senior), hospital for admitting privilege's, group practice to insure a doctor would be on call when Dr Lazar was not, sick call available every morning to provide help for unexpected illness, I think he his concern for wellbeing of patients is sincere, in recent years use of email for communication with Dr. Lazar has been excellent. He always replies usually within hours. This topic of comment was not requested, but maybe it has value in reply to collection of information.

July 24, 2020 10:53 AM

During this COVID visit, is much better than before. Less waiting, more through concerns etc.

July 21, 2020 10:47 PM

Dr. Lazar spoke with me first, asking questions, and then he did a brief physical and we talked a little during the physical. He spoke in terms that I was able to understand.

July 21, 2020 10:47 PM

Dr. Lazar was/is patient and we discussed my overall health; He is gentle when he did my physical, and very knowledgeable, helping me out with specialists and weight concerns.

July 20, 2020 4:54 PM

Dr. Lazar has been my primary care doctor for 30+ years and I like and trust him implicitly. He is also a GREAT diagnostician and always seems to know what to do when I describe anything re: my health.

July 16, 2020 12:59 PM

It was a good experience.

July 16, 2020 11:36 AM

Excellent.

July 16, 2020 11:36 AM

More than good.

July 14, 2020 2:36 PM

Good man.

July 13, 2020 1:50 PM

Very pleased with interaction with the provider. Spent a comfortable amount of time with me and was easy to talk to.

July 12, 2020 7:14 PM

Dr Dan listened carefully to everything I had to say as well as the answers I gave to his questions.

July 9, 2020 7:34 AM

Dr. Lazar always give me enough time. Answers all questions, always returns phone calls if I have a health related question.

July 9, 2020 7:34 AM

People doing lab work are very efficient.

July 7, 2020 3:11 PM

Excellant and thorough.

July 7, 2020 3:11 PM

Dr. Lazar has always been a thoughtful caregiver. I I highly recommend his, and Advocate's healthcare.

July 6, 2020 9:59 PM

As always, Dr. Lazar is excellent! He is a good listener, provides thoughtful feedback and makes appropriate recommendations regarding my health.

July 6, 2020 8:07 PM

very well

July 2, 2020 12:00 AM

Dr. Lazar is always a pleasant visit, he is kind respectful and straight to the point.

July 2, 2020 12:00 AM

Never had any bad experiences with Dr. Lazar "GREAT DOCTOR." Would recommend him to family and friends.

June 23, 2020 8:33 PM

very happy with provider

June 15, 2020 11:05 PM

Dr. Lazar is a phenomenal physician, who gives a patient his undivided attention. I never feel rushed. He takes his time to establish rapport. He is adept at putting me at ease. In addition to his amicable bedside manner, he's very intelligent. Despite his intelligence, he explains things in a manner lay people can understand. He genuinely cares about me. He always returns messages almost immediately. It's apparent he relishes being a physician. being a physician. This is a calling for him.

June 15, 2020 11:05 PM

The practice is apparently well-managed. The efficiency with which I am treated speaks to the thorough workflows put in place. No stone is left unturned. There is great attention to detail of every facet of care. I highly recommend this practice to others. When I do, they are not disappointed.

June 15, 2020 1:18 PM

From the beginning, I truly felt that Dr. Lazar had my best interests in mind and took a lot of time to listen to what I was experiencing. He was also great at explaining everything that came up. I am so happy to have this wonderful of a primary care physician because when it comes to my health, I would prefer one person manage my healthcare/records instead of bouncing around from PCP to PCP.

May 27, 2020 8:27 AM

I cannot praise enough the service and the care I receive from Dr. Lazar and his medical office. The nurses and support staff are consistently professional AND friendly.

May 27, 2020 8:27 AM

Dr. Lazar is a wonderful physician. He is attentive to and patient with my concerns; responds to my email questions with promptness; appears knowledgeable regarding current research on topics related to my medical issues; and always spends adequate time during my medical visits.

May 25, 2020 4:49 PM

Excellent bed side manner and good overall demeanor. Knowledgeable and forthcoming with overall well-being.

May 25, 2020 1:59 PM

Dr. Lazar made special arrangements to see me for the medical issues I had. He took all the time needed to explore my condition and discuss next steps. He was also very available and responsive in exchanging messages on the myAdvocate portal. Office staff and other medical professionals were great as well.

May 24, 2020 10:22 AM

I am very very happy having Dr Lazar as my physician.

May 22, 2020 12:00 AM

Great carrier during entire visit.

May 22, 2020 12:00 AM

Very good visit!

May 18, 2020 2:00 PM

This was my first video visit. It was amazingly effective. In answering survey questions precisely, I had contacted my provider via written messages (rather than phone calls) via the Advocate Aurora patient portal. This is a great system and I have received responses as rapidly as three minutes. Dr. Lazar is very familiar with my status and issues. He is good at passing along his suggestions for what would be beneficial alterations to my regimen.

May 18, 2020 2:00 PM

While I found the video visit to be a functional and useful tool, it is NOT a substitute for a face-to-face in person visit for examination/observation of little things that may have changed. In example, I forgot to mention a small growrh that had formed months ago. It remains unchanged since I discovered it. I am guessing that it is much older and I had never noticed it before.

May 11, 2020 2:50 PM

This was a video conference for post hospital visit. Good visit.

May 10, 2020 5:16 PM

Dr. Lazar conducted visit virtually. He was attentive, on-point, aware of my medical history, helpful with discussing my concerns; and, even spoke to me regarding other concerns I had which were not the reason I contacted him and requested an appointment. The virtual visit with Dr. Lazar went very well given that it was virtual- and I was impressed with his ability to manage the process as if it was a live face-to-face visit.

May 10, 2020 5:16 PM

This visit with Dr. Lazar was an excellent experience. The manner in which he conducted the virtual call, his focus on my initial concern, his inquiry regarding other health concerns and his advice and recommendations were all outstanding. Thanks.

May 9, 2020 6:37 AM

Dr. Lazar was able to see me right away and address my issues.

May 9, 2020 6:37 AM

Dr. Lazar is always available when you need him. He has great communication skills and a sense of humor. As his patient, I'm privileged to have him as my doctor.

May 6, 2020 8:08 AM

This was my first Telehealth session - I thought it went very well, Dr. Lazar was very knowledgeable about my health history & issues, and guided me well about what I need going forward. I am a relatively new patient and I feel very comfortable with Dr. Lazar as my primary health practitioner.

May 4, 2020 2:07 PM

Excellent experience

May 4, 2020 1:27 PM

Dr. Lazar is an effective listener and responds to requests in a very short time. He is great and recommend him to anyone.

April 27, 2020 8:25 PM

Dr. Lazar was so helpful and proactive. I initially contacted him due to a kidney stone. when he found out my neighbor was positive for covid and I was exposed after helping my neighbor after he was unconscious Dr. Lazar had a zoom appointment with me and then had me contact him daily until we knew I was past the point of testing positive from my exposure.

April 27, 2020 8:25 PM

Dr. Lazar is always response and compassionate. The example above is why I am proud to be a patient of Dr. Lazar's.

March 29, 2020 7:27 AM

Dr. Lazar has been and continues to be an excellent primary care physician. My husband also goes to Dr. Lazar and my children engage with physicians/nurses/nurse practitioners within Dr. Lazar's practice.

March 23, 2020 2:11 PM

Scheduled office visit was a phone visit. I asked my questions and had a good discussion with Dr. Lazar. Postponed my blood work until a better time with the virus issues.

March 23, 2020 2:11 PM

Very good experience

March 23, 2020 2:09 PM

I trust him!

March 16, 2020 5:18 PM

February 25, 2020 6:15 PM

Extremely thorough, and took his time answering many questions that I had. Even wait over test results with me from various sources.

February 25, 2020 5:34 PM

I am 97 years old, and rely on Dr Lazar for important guidance on my several conditions. I am so blessed to have such a superb clinician who is concerned about my health and well-being. I am in very good condition because of him.

February 25, 2020 5:34 PM

I am very pleased that Dr Lazar and his office get me in on the occasions where I need to be seen. This is often during the same week. I am so pleased to have such quick access to a skilled physician. The office appreciates that I am 97 years old; I rely on others to get me to my appointments. The office accommodates our schedules.

February 25, 2020 10:57 AM

Very efficient

February 25, 2020 10:57 AM

February 6, 2020 1:27 PM

This was my FIRST VISIT to this practice. (that's the reason I left some questions unanswered.) I had known Dr. Lazar as my mother-in-law's internist. He was wonderful to her and was wonderful to me. I am very glad to have him as my new internist.
