East Weymouth, MA |
We saw Dr. Larocca with our 3 year old son for Strabismus (an eye turn). At first he recommended that our son wear glasses (even though they said he had perfect vision). As soon as we told him our son was fighting wearing them, his whole demeanor changed & after wasting time/money on several appointments and buying glasses, he told us he had never worked with a child that gave him such a hard time & that we needed to get a second opinion somewhere else! Horrible bedside manor for a pediatric dr.

Dr LaRocca is very patient and kind with children. He's also very thorough and not an alarmist. Some moms want that but not me! My daughter loves him!

I had to take my 13 month old son to see this doctor for a blocked tear duct and both times I saw him he was rude, mean and not good with my son AT ALL! He rolled his eyes when I asked questions about my son's possible surgery and treated my son as if he'd never worked with a child in his life. I don't know what baby likes to be held down and have his eyes poked at but he made me feel like my son's squirming was annoying and not common. He shouldn't work with kids if that's how he acts.

Dr. Larocca has terrible bed side manners. Some of his comments and reactions to my questions still haunt me. My surgery was not 100% successful and he failed to believe that at first. We finally came to an agreement at 2 months post op. On my last apt. I was refracted by one of his younger employees. I ended up with a wrong prescription and refused to go back. I paid out of pocket for my optometrist and now my glasses are perfect.
