Patient Reviews
May 09, 2024
I am beyond grateful that I found Dr. Lucian Panait during my Google search. After reading reviews I scheduled an appointment. Prior to my visit I had an experience with a doctor I just could not connect with, which was rare. After my 1st visit with Dr. Panait I cancelled all future visits with my previous physician. Dr. Panait provides the level of care everyone should experience. He is extremely compassionate and attentive, most importantly he respects and responds to his patients. In addition to being happy with my new doctor I’ve also experienced amazing results with my weight loss and health since February 2024! I high recommend Dr. Lucian Panait, because you deserve to have a positive experience and relationship with your physician regarding your health!
