My experience being treated by Dr. LaRochelle in the hospital setting was very pleasant and thorough. I would recommend her anytime.
Fresno, CA |
I moved here from Michigan and was looking for an endocrinologist because of my past history with thyroid cancer. Well now I am taveling back to Michigan. It seems like all Carolina Health Specialist care about is getting as much money as possible. Doctor appointment $250 blood test $180 and throat scan at the hospital for $850. The doctor in Michigan did everything for in house for $200. Nurse was very unprofessional. Dr LaRochelle was professional but lacked knowledge of my previous doctor.

I highly recommend Dr. LaRochelle. She is approachable and knowledgeable. She sat and answered all my questions and I never felt as though she had one foot out the door!
in Myrtle Beach, SC |
Visited her for the first time today. She went over my records and told me more about my history than the doctor I had before. I was very impressed with what she said and what she planned to do as far as my treatment in the future. I will definitely keep her as my doctor.

I would never recommend Dr. Anne LaRochelle! Because I questioned the reason for an office visit where she was not prepared to discuss my biopsy results and why I should have to pay for that visit, she emailed me and told me that I need to find another doctor. I thought Dr.s were suppose to be prepared when you arrived rather than telling you that she doesn't have sufficient information but pay for the office visit anyway at $200 a pop. Totally unprofessional in my opinion.
in Shallotte, NC |
Impressed at my first visit. Her nurse spent quality time with me prior to seeing the doctor ...and then the doctor spent an amazing amount of time with me. She did not seem rushed at all, went over every health issue, gave me her game plan. I was impressed and looking forward to moving forward with good health.
