What People Say About Dr. Francois Lalonde, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Lalonde has treated both of my children. My daughter had a fairly complex genetic bone issue that required him to perform surgery & he saw my son for a minor collar bone fracture. In both cases, Dr. Lalonde was efficient, thorough, caring and most importantly, willing to address all questions/concerns that I had (and i tend to ask a lot of questions!). In addition, I appreciated being able to reach his assistant by email for items like school PE notes, etc. Highly recommend Dr. Lalonde
