Ratings for Dr. Laryenth D. Lancaster
Dr. Lancaster saved my life. I have no idea how anyone could say anything bad about him. He is intelligent and caring. Maybe those people with negative reviews don't want to face the truth about why they had heart issues to begin with. Dr. Lancaster assured me all the time that I would be OK. I'm so happy he was my doctor.
I unfortunately timed my tachycardia for a time when this dr was doing the rounds. I indicated to his nurse practitioner that I wanted any followups to be with Dr. Gavlick, also a member of Pima Heart. My followup appointments were made with Dr. Lancaster, nonetheless. I cancelled them and tried to schedule with Dr. Gavlick, who is also with Pima Heart. After three days of waiting I called back and Dr. Gavlick's personal assistant, Cindy told me she had bad news, the drs. have an agreement amongst themselves not to take another doctor within the groups' patients. I had never seen Dr. Lancaster in his office. I am young and if I have heart problems, I want the doctor of my choice, if I must be "established" with a doctor before they will give me care.
Even though I came in with my medical records, which diagnosed multiple, worrisome heart problems, this doctor accused me of making up my symptoms because I had looked up my diagnoses at WebMD! This 'professional' has his name listed on WebMD. He's not only incompetent, but must have some mental problems. One of my ailments, pericardial effusion of unknown cause. I asked for antibiotics, if for nothing else, as a precautionary measure, BUT prescribing antibiotics for effusions with mutiple, newly developed other WORSENING heart problems isn't only standard procedure, but highly recommended. Needless to say, he REFUSED TO PRESCRIBE ANTIBIOTICS. I later received antibiotics, which helped, so I had a bacterial infection attacking my heart. MY CONDITION HAD BECOME MUCH WORSE AT THIS POINT FOR IT TOOK 6 WEEKS TO GET AN APPOINTMENT WITH ANOTHER CARDIOLOGIST. My quality of life has been ruined by this inept 'professional.' I also had to wait over an hour and a half before I saw him.
