"When someone is looking for a doctor their first concern is finding a doctor who is
among the best in their specialty, personable, and able to explain medical issues in a way
that is understandable. Given that, there is simply no better choice than Dr. Don Lazas
and his staff at Associates in Gastroenterology in Hermitage. In the years I've known Dr.
Lazas his diagnoses and advice have been spot-on and he has been instrumental in
returning me to a level of health many would envy. I would highly recommend Dr. Lazas,
his assitant Kathi, and other medical professionals at Associates in Gastroenterology, to
anyone seeking gastroenterological care. I not only consider Dr. Lazas and Kathi highly
competent I consider them my friends."

"This was my 3rd colonoscopy by Dr. Lazas. All 3 were as pleasant as this experience can be. I was treated respectfully and courteously by everyone involved. Thank you!"
"I have found that people, offices, or businesses who do a great job always want to improve what they are doing. The ones who don't do a good job never ask. Thank you for doing a great job and for being efficient at what you do!
When I came home from my appointment with Dr. Lazas, I even told my husband what a great staff and office personnel you have. Thank you for making a visit to the doctor seem easy and for doing it the right way! If there is a trophy to be given at Summit Hospital, you guys should win!"
