Patient Reviews (4)
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.

The prime example of how a doctor should be. Not only is she very knowledgeable but also kind,caring, great bedside manner. Every diagnosis for our kids was spot on. I can't say enough good things about her. The best.

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.
