Dr. Laughter has a very nice personality and a heart of gold which are therapeutic in and of themselves. He knew right away which medication would be helpful for me and it turned out to be the most effective medication I've ever been on. Thank you Dr. Laughter.

He and his staff NEVER get back to you. He prescribed me something that was not formulary at all and despite several messages over a few weeks of trying to have him change the drug to something else, he never did. I finally was so desperate that I ended up paying $850 out of pocket to fill the medication that wasn't covered by my insurance because I couldn't go any longer without any medication. Also, it took forever to get them to charge my insurance, also took several phone calls.
