26/10/13 5 4 5 5 Dr. Lala is probably the most compassionate doctor I have ever been treated by. He explains everything very clearly, including the possible outcomes of epidurals. He is patient, understanding, and spends as much time in office visits as necessary to clarify everything, without rushing on to the next patient!!!

19/09/12 5 5 5 5 I have been to see Dr. Lala numerous times over the past 3 years for chronic back and neck pain. He and his staff have always shown a great amount of care and concern for my problems. There have been a few times when he has stayed after office hours to see me when the pain was unbearable. On one occasion, he personally, in addition to his office staff spent over an hour on the phone with the insurance company doctors to get an emergency MRI authorized.Today topped the cake though. I could barely move without intense pain shooting through my lower back and leg. He made a decision to change the scheduled procedure to help me with this situation.To sum it all up, he truly cares about his patients, fights for their rights with insurance companies and has instilled this same caring in his office and surgical staff.  Respond
