the nurse in the Cranberry office (don't remember her name) was exceptional. Very upbeat, considerate and easy to talk to....excellent manners and very professional. Dr. Lauer is great, always explains clearly any new instructions. Easy to talk to, Rey caring.

I have always been thankful that when I needed a cardiologist that I was sent to Dr. Lauer. He is very easy to talk to and always is thorough when discussing my health.

February 17, 2017

I specifically requested Dr. Lauer because he was the only doctor who consistently visited me in the hospital. They tried to give me another doctor who popped his head in occasionally. This doctor cares.

February 17, 2017

Dr. Lauer is top notch, very easy to talk with and takes time to answer all questions.

February 03, 2017

They are a great team who is concerned that I receive the care and understand what is going on with my body and what I need to keep it working or improve the condition. They are easy to talk to and very sincere and comforting. I always feel better after leaving that office with an optimistic outlook.
