Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Laporta "Mastery of technical elements is just a beginning. Talking with people and getting to understand is at least is important. A broad and deep knowledge is good; understanding humanity is even more important. Contemplation -- time to think -- helps make better decisions. I want every patient treated the same as I would want to be treated myself, or see my family treated, knowing what I know. Let it not go unsaid, it is very important for patient to trust the doctor, but it is equally important for the patient to be trustworthy."

Patient Comments (2)

Rude! Dismisses things as in your mind. Makes judgments about you without even knowing you! Writes disparaging things in your summary that could affect your future treatment. Be very careful about this man.

He is convinced that he knows more about you than you do. He knows everything and you know nothing. He has a terrible attitude about patients and I would not go back to him for anything. The AMA should investigate his practices as being both unethical and dangerous to patients health.
