Ratings for Dr. Lawrence A. May
I have been a patient of Dr.May for on and off 30+ years. He is an excellent physician and the only one I would trust to diagnose any medical issues. His staff is awesome too. They've been with him for many years. I would be lost without him if he retired. 10 thumbs up!
I have been a patient of Dr May for over 25 years! He is an extremely caring Physician, with an exceptional diagnostic ability! Yes sometimes the office can be very busy and it may take a little longer to be seen, but he is worth it. If you need a more time to discuss an issue, you just have to let him and his staff know. I don't think there is a more carin Dr, who is also brilliant! I highly recommend Dr May!
Dr. May could be a great diagnostician, but this is outweighed by his factory-like approach to medicine. He does not take the time to listen to people, maybe because he thinks he knows better. Although he may be correct, it is terrible to feel like your physician is not emotionally invested in your well-being. Dr. May and his staff seem to squeeze in as many appointments as possible in order to maximize billings. This is also reflected in the lab tests and blood work that Dr. May orders. A great diagnostician? Probably. An attentive physician? No. A narcissist? Definitely!
There is absolutely no better diagnostician! Dr. May is knowledgeable, experienced and provides quality, personalized care. He doesn't recommend anything that isn't necessary, and his supplements (ClearNaze, IndiCalm) have helped me. They are effective and have far fewer side effects than prescription medications. I credit my continued good health to Dr. May!
Have been going to Dr. May for over 35 years...he is very knowledgeable but does not give enough time and staff is rude. I used to call him the 5 minute man and now he is the 1.5 minute man..be sure and make notes to take with you or you will just be steamrolled.
I consider myself extremely lucky to have Dr. May as my physician. He is arguably the best internist in the country. Dr. May's knowledge is both encyclopedic and current. He knows the profiles of branded drugs--even those in new categories--far better than the individual drug reps, allowing him to recommend and prescribe the most effective solutions. Dr. May is a master diagnostician. While other patients may feel that the amount of physician time is a proxy for the quality of the doctor, I believe that a doctor should be judged on how quickly and accurately they identify and treat medical conditions. Dr. May often notices symptoms unrelated to the patient's reason for scheduling a medical appointment, enabling early intervention. In my case, he could tell by looking at my face that I had developed xanthelasmas and likely had high cholesterol with small, dense LDL particle size (the bad type of cholesterol). He was able to reduce my overall cholesterol number by almost 50%....in three weeks! This is the very definition of high quality, preventive medicine.
