Dr Lacovara has been my children’s pediatrician for 13 years. We switched after a different pedestrian in the area, misdiagnosed my son with a neurological disorder. After seeing a neurologist and being told he was fine, I lost trust and switched to Dr. Lacovara. She is caring, kind and very knowledgeable. She is very open to parent input. I have never had a negative experience with her. Both my son and daughter continue to receive excellent care.

I knew things weren't going to go well when they tried to give my child a shot she already had. I called the former doctor's office (in another state) to confirm this. Dr. Lacovara was very rude about requesting the information be faxed again. As the visit progressed, Dr. Lacovara got more and more offended when I questioned her about aspects of her check-up. If you advocate for your child, be prepared for a fight. I don't believe that Dr. Lacovara wanted to hear what I was saying.

She's been our pediatrician for 10 years. We love her and the office staff!!! We have never had a negative experience at their office. After hours call have always been handled promptly and anytime we've needed a last minute sick visit appointment, we have never been denied. Dr. Lacovara is a great doctor. She has always diagnosed correctly! She has a great bedside manner too. Her office staff is wonderful too. They are always so helpful and sweet.
