    Dr Lapolla is the best gynecologist oncologist I Have known. Very professional and knows what he is talking about. Made me feel comfortable about an illness that was severe but he handeled it and now I'm healed. I wasn't an easy [patient as I am obese. I couldn't believe how much better I feel and within 24 hours of surgery walking and out of hospital. I had the Da vinci laprosopic complete hysterectomy tubes ovaries uterus and vagina taken out.

    I could tell by listening to Dr. Lapolla that his extensive education and experience hold firmly in his mind, that he knows his stuff. This is the most important factor in considering a doctor! I saw him for a recurring condition that each time gives me severe anxiety about its prognosis. This is the 1st time (of 4) that I was made to feel assured and safe, thanks to his expertise and presentation of information. His office was packed. Highly recommended for Smart Care.

    I had a horrible experience with this doctor. I had two other doctors treating me for cervical cancer who wanted me to have a hysterectomy; however Dr. Lapolla did not want to perform surgery. He basically brushed me off stating that there was nothing more he could do for me. That was almost a year ago. Now while I am still getting chemotherapy, I am in the process of getting better, especially without the help this doctor. I highly do NOT recommend him especially if you want to get better.
