A Sad Day for Our Practice

On Friday, June 13,2014, our beloved Dr. Arnold Lazar passed away.

Dr. Lazar was co-founder of this practice. He  touched many lives and delivered thousands of babies in his 37 years with OB & GYN Specialists. He  held several leadership positions at Orlando Health, and has received many honors  throughout the years. To our practice, he was the dreamer, mentor, protector of  patients, voice of reason and fairness, and the “heartbeat” of  our group. He was an example of a physician that truly cared for his patients and their well-being, and was often the last  to leave the office each day because he spent extra time helping someone through a difficult time.

The funeral for Dr. Lazar will be Sunday, June 15 at 11:00 a.m.

    Temple Israel Cemetery
    9200 Morton Jones Road
    Gotha, FL 34734

    We are saddened to hear of Dr. Lazar’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and with your office staff. Even though he was not my physician, I know he had a great reputation in the community. I know he will be missed by many. May we each honor him in our own way this month. Thank you, Dr. Lazar for all your hard work and dedication.

    Dr. Lazar was such an amazing man. He showed such compassion and went above and beyond for any patient that needed him. He was my physician since 1989, and I will miss him greatly. I cried in his office many times over the years, but he was always there doing what he did best…listening to his patients! He will always be remembered fondly by my family.

    I just learned of Dr. Lazar’s passing and am extremely saddened. Dr. Lazar had been my doctor for the last 14 years and delivered my son 10 years ago. During my 30 hours of labor my nurse was told, over the phone, by the doctor on call to send me out for a walks in the mall. I left and returned hours later to find the same doctor still on call. As the night crossed over to morning Dr. Lazar walked into my room and said, “I got this kiddo”. Tears of joy and relief engulfed me; my Dr. Lazar had this. Over the years Dr. Lazar took care of me, laughed with me, and comforted me though rough times; he had this, and now he is gone. My last visit with Dr Lazar was in May and still, through his discomfort he was comforting me through my rough moments; he had this. I called today to make an appointment with him and this dear woman over the phone had to break this sad news to me. I am sad for his family, staff members, and the multitude of patients he cared for, and now he is gone. Rest well my dear Dr. Lazar you will be missed, you are missed.

    I’m saddened to hear of Dr. Lazar’s passing. I had to have an in-office procedure followed by an outpatient procedure and was very anxious. He did a great job of providing support and exploring my concerns. He reassured me that everything would be ok and shared his own recent medical needs that inovlved anethesia. I had never seen him before but truly appreciated his great approach to his patients. I particularly like how he called me in his office first before he examined me and then after. Very old school and will miss him.
