Dr. Larson is fantastic as a general practitioner. He has an overview of all of my health issues and views it all as a whole. He's responsive to questions and is patient, even after I've asked a BUNCH.

Lance Larson has done an outstanding job for me over the years - double-checked if I had a heart murmur from childhood rheumatic fever and freed me from prophylactic penicillin.
