What People Say About Dr. John Laco, DPM
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Ha! "I always ask the patient if there are any questions". What a joke! I have NEVER had a physician care less about me as a patient or a person. He barely spoke to me, was condescending, short and rude. I did not ask follow up questions because I knew I'd get a rude, dismissive answer. His first treatment plan was the MOST invasive option, and he was condescending when I asked if we could start with a less intense option. He actually spoke so meanly to me that I cried. Not going back.

Dr. Laco has cared for my feet for so many years. He is very thorough and listens to me. He saved my foot during a terrible infection. He has been an amazing and caring doctor, even calling me to check on me during times of greater infection. He truly cares and I would recommend him to anyone, especially those going through what I have been through with a diabetic history. His staff is great and they have even opened early to make sure I am seen.

I saw Dr. Laco for recurring issues with bunions on both of my feet. I decided to have bunion surgery on both of my feet in November of 2017. I couldn't BE HAPPIER with my decision! What I really respect and appreciate about Dr. Laco is that he is wonderful at managing expectations! He made sure I was fully aware of the recovery process, and I saw him weekly after my surgery. He even personally called me twice after my surgery to check-in/see how I was doing.

My experience with Dr. Laco and his staff were absolutely amazing. The appointments were easy to make and they never kept me waiting. The gals up front were also very helpful with my FMLA and insurance benefits. Everything went extremely smooth. I found Dr. Laco to be on point with my diagnoses, treatment plan and follow up. He personally made calls to me to ensure I was healing properly after my surgery and addressed all of my concerns. I strongly recommend him and his staff.
