Patient Comments (5)
I have called multiple times and no one answers the phone. I have left voice messages with my phone number but no one calls me back. I have been waiting over a month just for them to call me back. Luckily 911 works in case of emergencies. Do not expect to reach anyone from this office because you will die before they get back to you.

This review is for the administrative office. My surgent referred me to see Dr.La after an orthopedic surgery. I called to make an appointment, they asked for my insurance ID, I got an appointment in 2 month. I called at least 3 times more to see if somebody cancelled as I was in pain. Finally after 2 month I came to see Dr.La, filled out all the papers in the office only to discover Dr.La does not take my insurance (PPO Blue Shield)! All this time waisted! They knew what my ins was frombeginnin

Dr. La is one of these hard to find physicians who are not only knowledgeable but also extremely caring. I suffer from a couple of autoimmune conditions and Dr. La has been a blessing to have as my rheumatologist. Not only does he help me manage my conditions, but when I got really sick and had to be admitted to the hospital, he came in every day to check on my condition and worked tirelessly with other physicians to get me back on me feet. I give Dr. La the highest recommendation possible.

Dr. La and his associate Jessica St. Jules are outstanding. They are both very knowledgeable and attentive. I highly recommend either one of them in the practice. Wait times

Office is chaotic and frustrating. Oftentimes, can't get through and are told to leave a voicemail. Requests left on the voicemail will not be addressed. Othertimes, are put on hold and then disconnected. Sometimes are dealt with in a dismissive manner. I was bringing my disabled wife in for an appointment but was told not until a prescribed procedure had been performed. She ran out of a pain medicine. When called for a refill, was told not until he sees her again in a month. Withdrawals
