I find Dr. Lamar to be very professional and caring. She is careful to explain everything to me an my wife.


Excellent doctor compassionate, easy to understand.


My Primary Physician is with Novant Health and she initially set me up with an oncologist at Forsyth. I decided that I had more confidence in the care that I would receive at Baptist. it was one of the best decisions of my life..... actually, I think it saved my life. I thank God every day for all the good care and concern that everyone provided.


I have complete faith in Dr. Lamar, she is the best.


Dr. Lamar is an excellent doctor who cares about her patients. Very patient and caring. I feel that I got the best care I could have possibly received from her. Love her!!




*Dr. Lamar rocks!


All of Dr Lamar's team were exceptional. I never want to go through this cancer treatment with a transplant again, but should I have to, I'd want her team taking care of me.
