I went to see Dr. Lafond during a medical crisis. Dr. Lafond’s bedside manner was outstanding. I explained to him that I had experienced similar symptoms in the past, and had become increasingly frustrated with worsening health issues. Within the first visit Dr. Lafond diagnosed my condition, and prescribed me medication that reduced my symptoms substantially. I would highly recommended Dr. Lafond. Natasha Richmond,VA

I was beyond impressed with my experience with Dr. Lafond. I had nothing but positive experiences with him. Dr Lafond listened to my concerns and was very informative. He is a professional and has a naturally lovely personality. I was saddened to hear that he was leaving UVA and I haven’t found a gastro doctor that I trust since he left for RVA. Highly recommend him

I have been seeing Dr. LaFond for several months. He has been very helpful and informative. He has performed several procedures and followed up in a timely manner. He has been fabulous at putting me at ease, answering my questions, and scheduling follow-up appointments. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a gastrointestinal specialist.

Dr. Lafond has been an amazing doctor. My husband was diagnosed with Crohn's disease about a year and a half ago, Dr. Lafond was the one who diagnose him and he was very thorough in diagnosing him and tried to be as proactive as possible with treatments. He even came and visited my husband in the E.R. during a Crohn's episode, which I've never known a doctor to do. He has been super helpful and been available and willing to answer all our questions.

What an amazing doctor! I have an adult daughter with Down's Syndrome that has been seeing Dr. Lafond for a couple of years now, he is so good with her and really goes well beyond what is expected of any doctor. Getting a diagnosis with her is sometimes difficult, but Dr. Lafond never gives up. He follows up with me and even calls me after hours. We feel so blessed to have him!

I have seen Dr. LaFond numerous times over 2 1/2 years for a chronic illness. I 100% would & do recommend him to family &friends. I can't imagine him involved in the 2 unfortunate sounding situations described below. I have seen him interact w/ various other office staff &even other patients during my frequent visits & have always gotten the impression he is extremely pleasant, respected, and well liked. He has gone out of his way to call me after hrs and on weekends when needed - a rarity!

Without him, I'd not have been able to make sure that my uric acid levels were managed with the right medication and would have been suffering from gout repeatedly. He has checked in regularly, answered all questions warmly and followed up with me promptly.

He didn't listen to me during my first visit about family history. Didnt run tests that he was supposed to.Kept telling me how he knew that my pain couldn't be from Fatty Liver Disease. I had another doc in the ER explain that yes, my pain could be coming from Fatty liver disease. I spoke with Dr. LAFOND on the phone and he said again that doc was wrong and was demeaning on the phone. Somehow doctors lose their humanity. He has a huge ego.
