I had such a wonderful experience with Dr Laker. He was referred by my medical doctor. I had seen several surgeons before him that told me nothing could be done to help me. Dr Laker spent a lot of time with me explaining in detail what he was planning on doing to help me. Three weeks later he did surgery on me and I haven't felt this good in years. Thank you so much Dr Laker!
I was referred to Dr. Laker for recurring hernia issue I've had for years... His bedside mannerism get the highest marks I'm allowed to give for his listening skills, knowledge, and understanding of what I was experiencing. He then conducted my surgery a week later, greeted me with a smile like were old friends, personally came and gave me an update post surgery, and even was there for me via email and phone with my post op questions and needs for the next few weeks. I can't say enough positive things about this Doctor.
