If you are looking for that dream doctor who takes time, listens, remembers you from year to year, and pushes you to follow up on tests and referrals, Dr. Lara Charneco is right for you. Not only has she nailed the bedside manner, but she is a darn good medical doctor. Her diagnoses and prescriptions have saved me from a variety of irritating maladies. She has been my doctor for four years and I look forward to each visit.

When my primary care physician left AIMMG, I was assigned to Dr. Charnenco. Dr. Charnenco is quite thorough and methodic. She discusses various treatment options, and values my opinions when making decisions.
