Ratings for Dr. Lawrence A. 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.
Dr. May is an outstanding physician. Albeit busy, he treats his patient with a kindness and thoroughness not often found with very busy physicians! Also his team Randi and Karen are wonderful and most helpful. Both women work extremely hard and keep Dr. May on track with a busy practice. Randi is essential !!
Extremely unprofessional office. Went for an evaluation, they ended up doing blood, EKG etc... they billed it incorrectly, a $500 bill for blood work when it was covered 100% by our insurance. We had to do all the leg work to try and get it corrected, while his lazy ass staff did jack. He has the audacity to blame us for his mis-billing and tells us to get another doctor. Basically he's what's wrong with American medicine. Pushes supplements like his office is an infomercial and could care less about real healthcare, just goes through the motions. Will tell everybody NOT to go to him. Now I can find a real doctor, who cares about people and doesn't hang up in a patients face. If you like being insulted, then I do recommend him.
