Review For: Dr. Gary M. Lake
Sometimes “old fashioned” is good. Yesterday, I came to the Tuscaloosa Ear, Nose, and Throat Center because of a bad case of laryngitis that just wasn’t going away. From the time I entered, I was impressed with everyone who helped me. The wait was not long, I was told everything that was happening along the way, and the conversations I had with the nurse, the scope technician, and Dr. Shotts were warm, friendly, and quite informative. It kind of felt like an “old fashioned” doctor’s office where time is taken to get to know patients and to ask and answer questions. Dr. Shotts made sure I saw the sinus X-rays and throat scope video, and he thoroughly explained what we saw and what was indicated. I don’t really remember being able to describe a visit to any doctor’s office as “enjoyable” before, but this one was! Thank you to Dr. Shotts and the staff!
Dr. Lake is by far the best ENT here in Tuscaloosa. Thank you so much for all that you did for us. There’s a whole lot more that I can say, but I’m confident that I will get my chance to say it directly to you. You are a physician, but in my opinion; you are one of God’s Angels. Thank you.
