dr laurer is best heart dr

May 03, 2019

I went to Dr Lauer with an ongoing rapid heart rate. I have many friends having heart related issues with turning 50. The rapid heart rate concerns people close to me. So, I was going to calm everyone, and to be honest at this point, myself. Dr. Lauer was respectful, caring, and totally put any and all uneasiness to rest. I know he has many critical clients and could have been annoyed with my questions about a non-acute matter, but he was quite the opposite. I would recommend him to my dearest friend and family member for sure. They would be in the best of hands.

Dr. Lauer treated me with respect and good humor, which is not easy went you are on a tight schedule.
