He did not quit until we found out what was wrong with me, what was causing my symptoms. He is the one who found out it was MS. As long as possible I will not go to another doctor! I have been his patient for almost 10 years now. He does have long wait times but he is totally worth it!

I have been a patient of Dr LaBella’s for many years. She takes time to sit and discuss health issues. I have always felt comfortable with her and feel that she is providing excellent care for me. I recommended that my daughter see her and she was pleased with her treatment also.

Total. Arrogant. Jerk. Responds to questions with hostility. Does not inspire a lot of confidence. I would not let him perform surgery on my elderly mother.

Id give him zero stars. Saw him at AHN-McCandles. He is arrogant, doesnt listen to concerns, and makes you feel like youre wrong and he is right. Refuses to treat and nakes you feel belittled. If hes there, ask for a different doctor

Felt like he talked down to me and had no desire to hear what I was saying. At the time, I was 67 years old and know this body pretty well - I'm not picky or fussy and don't usually leave reviews. Went to see Todd Hillman after that - what a difference all the way around!

You may walk in with some assistance then find yourself in a wheelchair within months. Bad place, BAD PEOPLE. THEY LIE and don't provide adequate care. I was informed that pain was not an emergency and I could wait for an appointment. That is if you can get them to answer the phone.
