Ratings for Dr. Hesham Lakosha
I recently saw Dr Lakosha and wouldn't return. Waited 3 hours. My appointment was for 10:40 and I left office at 1:40. When I asked questions about my diagnosis it seemed as though I had a lot of nerve and was responded to very short and abrupt. Spoke to others in the waiting room as we had 3 hours to chat and they felt the same way. Guess I need to see him for a money making eye lid lift procedure and not a health issue to see the positive Dr.

Dr. Lakosha is a wonderful doctor, I see him annually for a diabetic check up. He is very thorough and makes sure I am fully aware of what he is looking for and what could happen because of my disease. His staff is very knowledgeable and always there to help out a patient if needed. I would recommend this office to anyone. Also his new location is way more convenient then the other one, no more searching for parking and paying an arm and leg once you find a spot.
I recently had cataract surgery and couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Dr Lakosha and his staff were very knowledgeable, courteous and helpful in all aspects of my experience. Dr Lakosha made me feel very comfortable about the surgery, explaining everything. Kaitlyn was also very helpful in providing me with information on the various lens which helped me make a very informed decision on my choices. Overall it was a good experience and I would definitely recommend Dr Lakosha and his team to anyone.
