Dr. Lalezari is wonderful! He's attentive and thorough and made me feel listened to. I'm definitely going to come back to him in the future.
As always, stellar appointment! I moved 20 miles away, and still come to see him.
The doctor was efficient, asked great questions and seemed really interested in my health history. The office was clean and had a very inviting waiting area, the exam rooms were HUGE! I didn't think I'd find a Dr. in Los Angeles this quickly, but I have.
Dr. Lalezari is friendly and pleasant. He explains things and makes sure you understand (e.g. lab results). The office staff is also friendly and professional.
Dr. Lalezari is very pleasant and puts you at ease. I was s new patient and he reviewed my records with me. He was thorough and seems genuinely interested in the patient's well-being.
The waiting room/receptionist area was extremely disorganized. They were clearly running behind, and frazzled. They definitely didn't realize that I had made an appointment (the building is marked "Urgent Care") or that I had pre-filled out my patient forms online. When I talked to the nurses at the desk, they always specified that they didn't work with the doctor I made an appointment to see before helping me. Which nurse does work with him, then? I had to wait nearly an hour past appointment time to see Dr. Lalezari, which he apologized for. I liked Dr. Lalezari a lot and found him to be helpful with my health issues. But the overall experience wasn't great.
Very friendly and thorough!
He took forever, didn't have the right "script pad" to write me Rx so I had to wait a day for something very important. It was "delivered" by a company that showed up 8 hours late and with only half the script so I was forced to coordinate w them the next day to receive the other half. I've been calling for a refill on a script he forgot to send to the pharmacy that day and they said they "lost my chart" and would call me back--nothing from them and I've been calling daily. Would NOT recommend.
Doctor was excellent - extremely polite and very professional
You can just tell he cares. Incredibly professional.
This place is the best!! From start to finish....THE BEST!
I went in with a severely painful sore throat and once the strep test came back negative this doctor wrote me a prescription for something else and sent me on my way with no advice or anything. Told me to just deal with it until it went away. When I took the rx to the pharmacy the woman looked at me like I was a dummy and said that the rx was for over the counter cough drops and to "go to aisle 8." I've never felt so ridiculous and placated with basically what was a placebo prescription. Days later my throat is still on fire in a very serious way.
The Doctor and staff are very nice. Dr. Lalezari is very nice and attentive.
Dr. Lalezari prioritizes new patients over existing patients so that new patients don't realize how infrequently he works. If you're a new patient there are openings within a day or two or same day. If you're an existing patient you have to wait a week or longer. He only works 2 or three days a week and only half the day. He gave me bad medical advice that the specialist I saw a couple weeks later when my problem was persisting said was terrible advice I should never follow. He didn't seem knowledgable on different kinds of birth control or really have any advice to contribute on that. My prescription refills are always late because he's never in the office and the pharmacy can't get in touch with him until days later. He seems nice enough but I just have little faith in him.
Doc was happy to talk and wasn't in a hurry.
My husband and I had our first visit visit with Dr. Lalezari. Me and my husband are both Registered Nurses and deals with doctors on a regular basis, and I can say he has a very good bedside manner, and actually takes the time to talk AND listen to any concerns and complaints. His exams are thorough, and not rushed. I recommend him to anyone looking for a primary care provider.
He's a good doctor but he seemed like a bit of an airhead, at least on the day I was with him. He misplaced my chart and I was in the office from start to finish for at least three hours before I got to see him. Aside from that, he did his job and prescribed me the antibiotics that I needed but didn't really specifically diagnose the infection I had. Had I not come in knowing what I had, I would have been very confused upon leaving.
A+ Doctor. Easy to work with and a genuine concern for his patients. Total Rock Star of Docs.
A most excellent and thorough physician. Top shelf Doc.
Dr. Lalezari was very knowledgeable and helpful!
Was interested in hearing my concerns and did not make me feel rushed.
Dr. David Lalezari was very polite and attentive. It's a small thing but there was no computer in the waiting room and instead of having one of the front desk people wheel one in or having someone do it for him, he just went and did it himself. I really appreciated that. He also knew that I was waiting for about 50 minutes, and he was super apologetic. His bedside manner was great. He didn't dismiss any of my concerns and he was very professional yet approachable. I'd definitely recommend Dr. Laezari for a visit.
Happy to have found a primary care physician in LA! Dr. Lalezari is great- thorough, informative and caring. The staff was also wonderful. I will absolutely return when necessary.
Dr. Lalezari was very attentive with my concerns, and did an incredibly thorough job asking questions and putting together details surrounding my health. I left my appointment feeling completely at ease.
Wonderful manner, thorough examination and conversation. Really happy I've found him!
Both Dr. Lalezari and his staff were super professional and cordial. I felt completely at ease and that all my questions and concerns were answered and met.
I have to say I am honestly still in shock over how much time Dr. Lalezari spent with me. In the past, I have been thoroughly unimpressed by primary care doctors. But, as I'm really trying to focus more on my health this year, I went in for a yearly physical with my extensive medical history in hand. As I am used to, I was expecting the doctor to take a quick look and then send me off to do a million unnecessary tests. Instead, he sat down with me for a very considerable amount of time, listened to every detail, and took a very holistic approach, doing his best to piece everything together like a puzzle. All in all, he seemed generally concerned about me and my health and was good about weeding out the minor annoyances from the more major concerns. I was more than impressed and I will definitely make yearly physicals a habit as long as I have a doctor like Dr. Lalezari!
