Dr. Lauer is very easy to talk with, very approachable. He listens carefully to my questions and answers in a way that I know he thinks about the answer, and if necessary, will refer to my medical record to endure he's taking my particular situation into account when answering. I feel that I am in very good hands with him and have complete confidence in him.
