Not sure if Dr. John Lah is a general practitioner but I'm going to find out because I found him to be very patient and attentive to my concerns and now a days a doctor rushed you out the door as to see many more patients but I got the sense that Dr. Lah had a genuine concern and made sure I understood before he went any further. I highly recommend

Dr. Lah is very attentive. He had already studied my case before the procedure even began and explained exactly what he would be looking for and the expected results. He is also a very kind man which makes a big difference in a stressful situation.

April 13, 2018
Dr Lah was very knowledgeable and respectful. He explained in detail the digestive track and it was nice to know he confirmed my belief on the connection between brain and gut health. He was quick to put me on pills to neutralize my acidity, which I am struggling to do since I don't like taking medication and rather try other alternatives before turning to pills, but I am following dr's orders. Also, he never told me what my diagnosis was except for that I was too acidic and that is what was causing my bloat, gas pain, and discomfort. I had read other comments that he didn't really take time to listen to what the patient had to say, I didn't feel that way, however he did talk about 90% of the time and would ask if I had questions after explaining something. I did get caught up in what he was explaining, that I forgot to mention the rest of the symptoms I was experiencing, and to ask him several important questions I had.
April 10, 2018
That the staff, made me feel very comfortable.
April 10, 2018
I recommend him because he listens well and explains things well
April 06, 2018
I would recommend him.
April 04, 2018

Please provide the information of this sort on the PIH patient portal.
January 26, 2018
Dr Lah clearly explains the issue and the solution. He sent my RX over right away so I didn’t have to carry a prescription to the pharmacy and wait a long time.
January 23, 2018
Every one was great.
January 17, 2018
Very good listener who provided my mom great information. She appreciated his advice.
January 12, 2018
I'd say that Dr. Lah is very knowledgeable but I felt the appointment was in a rush. When I asked questions he was looking at the computer which it feels weird and disrespectful. He asked me if I had done some tests that he could had seen easily before meeting with me. In my opinion he needs to study the patient's case, paying attention when talking to the patient, and being more caring.
January 11, 2018
Thought it was a good doctor.
December 29, 2017
He is a very professional and helpful, kind and caring, answers every question to the best of his medical knowledge. He shows that he cares about your health
December 20, 2017
Good Doctor.
December 19, 2017
Everything went smoothly and I had no pain or discomfort after the procedure!! I hope he's my doctor the next time I have this procedure.
