What People Say About Dr. Laura Cifra-Bean, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
My child broke her arm at school. I called her office and the DR could not see my child for a couple of hours, so I took my daughter to the nearest urgent care. My insurance provider denied the claim, as the urgent care was out of network. The insurance company advised that if Dr. Cifra-Bean would write a referral they would cover the claim at out of network cost. Dr Cifra-Bean refused to write a referral to the urgent care, even after speaking to her. She even stated that she did not think that waiting a couple of hours was excessive. I highly doubt if this was her child, she would say the same thing. My child was in a lot of pain, crying when I picked her up. I now have a 1000 dollar bill from the urgent care with insurance. This doctor has a major conflict of interest being a Lake Health physician and clearly does not want to refer people away from the Lake health. She does not support the decisions that parents need to make when their child is in pain. Do not see this DR!

My son has seen Dr. Cifra-Bean since his first appointment after birth. He was a FTT and low Birth weight baby and she helped us with recommendations to help him gain weight and hit his milestones! Now I have a very healthy and active 8 year old! Dr. Cifra-Bean is supportive and understanding! I recommend her to any of my friends looking for a pediatrician for their babies!

Went in for a follow up from emergency appendectomy performed on 12/31/2015. Before coming to the office I mentioned I already sent pictures of what was going on with the surgical site to the Ped Surgeon. They advised me to get to the ped. office to have them remove bandages, clean and to apply new bandages. No infection present. Dr contacted surgeon again & arranged er visit at HillCrest ER. No Infection present. Waste of $250.00 for ER Copay!!! She acted like it was a life or death matte
