I am a newer patient of Dr LaViola. He is the first cardiologist to find/admit to finding any even potential problem with my heart. I plan on keeping Dr. LaViola, that's after 'firing' four other cardiologists. As far as I'm concerned, he's a 'keeper'.

My 85 year old mother just had surgery yesterday to have wires hooked up to her pace maker because Dr. La Viola did not do it correctly when he initially inserted the pace maker. Run as fast as you can from this doctor!!! I would never recommend this doctor.

Dr. LaViola“s staff is in dire need of proper training. The receptionist that answered the phone today, 12/16/2016, at 3:05pm, was very short ?ith me and took no notice of anything that I was trying to find out! As a matter of my lack of intelligence, she felt the need to continually interrupt me...more
