My visit to the office saved me from having to be an emergency patient to the hospital. The nursing assistant Danielle performed an EKG and the Doctor advised me to see a cardiologist. The office set up the appointment and I was seen that day. My thanks to Dr. LaPorta and her wonderful staff.

I have been to this doctor, or should I say, her interns, several times. I have never seen her. Every time I go I see a new person in training. They never do a full physical. they have misdiagnosed me several times. They bill for things that didn't happen. This office is full of incompetent people. I would not recommend her or any of her temps.

I did't receive a call from anyone in the office regarding my diagnosis from a recent biopsy. Also, they did not recommend any affiliate to do a recommended procedure from radiologist. I had no direction what to do! The billing is horrible, for the second time they submitted the wrong billing code and billed me when they should not have. Their out sourced billing never picks up a call or returns one when a message is left. They never recommended I need supplements after a blood text stated I did

Was on vacation and asked asthma medication after being seen in the office the week before. Christina who is aweful started calling me names and refused my medication that I am always on and had Vanessa call in a medication that I cannot take that is notated on my chart. I explained that I couldn't take it and she told me that it was too bad and told me that I'm talking so guess my asthma isn't that bad and hung up in my face. Horrible ! This is very abusive !!! I'll never go there again

Dr. LaPorta along with the other clinicians she has on staff are very sweet and caring. The office staff is friendly and the clinicians are very thorough with all your health needs. The wait time is never too bad either.

This office is horrible. They are completely incompetent. The PA's or NP's consistently fail to diagnose problems in a timely and professional manner. This office never provides appointments to see an actual licensed physician. The office staff mismanages lab tests and results as well as delays providing important messages to the doctors. The office will always make a patient come in just so they can collect a co-pay and bill your insurance company. I DO NOT Recommend this office.

Dr. LaPorta is a very caring physician, with great family medicine experience. If she feels that your condition merits a specialist's review she will provide several specialists in that field, that she trusts.

Does not care about patients, nor does the office collaborate with other doctors.
