Pediatric Otolaryngologist, Ear, Nose & Throat Doctor

Memphis, TN

About Dr. Rande Lazar

Rande H. Lazar, M.D. has established himself throughout his career as an innovator in the medical field and a philanthropist within his community. Dr. Lazar has successfully described new pediatric procedures to the medical community and laid the groundwork for future physicians and researchers to build upon his work. When Dr. Rande Lazar arrived in Memphis he was the only fellowship-trained Pediatric Otolaryngologist in the Mid-South. At LeBonheur Children’s Medical Center he implemented and was a pioneer in this region for upper airway reconstruction procedures, i.e., cricoid splits and laryngotracheal reconstruction. Additionally, Dr. Lazar utilized state-of-the-art equipment which included CO2 lasers and KTP lasers for the airway. He and his group adopted endonasal sinus surgery for pediatric patients and were the first in the nation to publish in a peer reviewed journal on this procedure. Dr. Lazar’s work has stood the test of time in all these areas, as those procedures are still being done in much the same way as he described them and implemented them in the Mid-South.

HORRIBLE VISIT!!!!. The doctor is rude and talks over you. He wouldn't let me finish explaining my symptoms before he left the room. I wouldn't visit this place again if it was the last place on earth. I'd rather suffer a few more days until I could find a more friendlier doctor. He will never get another dime from me. A WASTE OF TIME!!!! DO NOT VISIT HIS OFFICE!!! RUN!!!!!

My problem was residue in my ear after an ear infection treated by my primary care doctor, So, removing the residue was done by the nurse making my visit unsatisfactory for evaluating Dr. Lazar. Dr. Lazar only appeared briefly. The nurse seemed very thorough, competent, and friendly enough.

Normally it is okay this particular visit. I inquired about my account I wanted know the balance. Instead of me getting an answer they ask to have a seat wait to be call to get an answer. Pertaining your account in advance before you are render service is unexcusable period.

Dr. Rande Lazar is an excellent, caring, knowledgeable ENT. Highly recommended. I went for my daughter’s recurrent hearing, congestion, sore throat, sinus problems. He recommended tonsils and adenoids out as well as tubes in her ears. I am satisfied with his recommendation since my daughter has had recurrent unresolved issues with this this year.

Super nice guy, knew exactly what he was doing and treated my condition immediately. The only problem was the wait time. My appointment was at 12:30 and i didn't see the doctor till 2. I think that is ridiculous especially when you have an appointment time. There should not be that much of a delay.

Good visit, and I liked the doctor. It took a while to be seen, but once I got called back it went quickly. I don't think the person who checked me in really understood zocdoc. It took her 30 minutes to give me forms to fill out after I got there, and then called me back again because she couldn't find the appointment. Maybe she was just new, or maybe I should have called to make the appointment instead of doing it online. It all got figured out in the end, and I was able to make the appointment for the very next day thanks to zocdoc, which I couldn't do at other offices.

Dr. Lazar took my condition seriously, listened to my description, and asked questions. He sent me for further testing and bloodwork. He seemed very knowledgable and willing to help. The only thing I believe needed to be improved was the patient confidentiality. The nurse was very loud and I could hear her calling a patient's information to another doctor's office which included the patient's name, date of birth, condition, etc. Just something they need to be aware of.
