every time i see Dr Larossa i feel like i'm getting the attention that so many claim is lacking from medicine these days.

Prescriptions are filled in a timely manner as well. honestly, one of the best interactions with the medical community that ive had. JS - Watertown

Best Doctor I have ever seen. Incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and patient. Explains everything in easy to understand language, and helps with any issues I have, not just Endocrine related.

I saw Dr. Larossa end of May. I had a lot of blood work as I have been struggling with an issue for many years.It is now July 26th and I have still not been able to get my results translated. I called office 4 times to ask for results, never got them. The 5th phone call I was told they would be on patient gateway,which I did not have. So what is done with the patient's who are not on gateway? Results are there, but I am not a dr do not know what they mean.2 more messages to office, no answer yet
