Lori Hagar


I have seen Lori Hagar for routine appointments for many years. She is an outstanding APP — knowledgeable, honest, never seems rushed, and has a calming, professional manner. She is the best.

Lori Hagar is the best provider I have ever encountered. She is genuinely concerned about my health and provides care and knowledge to help in every way possible.

I always look forward to my appointments with Lori Hagar. I don’t like pap smears, but I like the gentle and caring way she provides service, which puts me at ease. She listens to my questions and concerns – she’s like a care giver (friend).

I do want to thank Lori Hagar for helping me through the process. I have extreme anxiety. When it comes to new doctors I get very scared and she was wonderful with me she made me feel calm and relaxed, and very comfortable the entire visit. I would definitely come to her again if needed. Thank you again Lori for being so patient with me & my anxiety.

I think Lori Hagar is excellent!
