Dr . LaForte was extremely nice & explained everything in a thorough manner. She and her student took their time & not only talked to us his parents, but also takked to him & showed concern for what he had to say. He was checked out very well & her diagnosis was correct & we were able to care for him at home with her education. She helped calm my fears & our sons too.Jun 17 2016
