My son is a patient of Dr. Lake’s. He has been a patient for approximately a year. He had his tonsils removed over the summer and the surgery went extremely well. Dr. Lake was wonderful before and after the surgery. The recovery went much better than anticipated. Thanks to Tuscaloosa ENT for diagnosing and resolving his sleeping problems.
