in Astoria, NY |
When I came to her 9 years ago my medication dosage was too high. I was concerned that my health was deteriorating but, she told me that under no uncertain terms was that the case. I needed less medication and to make some lifestyle modifications. At her urging, I starting going to bed early and rising early. I exercised outside in the sunlight all year and gave up alcohol. I credit much of my happiness to her encouragement. She has always made it very clear to me that I am very capable.

I spent years searching for help for my son. Dr. Laakso diagnosed him properly after seeing 3 doctors who didn't. She not only saved his life, but my husband and mine as well. Today, years later, she continues to treat him and I have my son back from the brink.
