Always been good when I'm thereMar 17,2017
Dr. Laforte has been caring for my wife about 7yrs (I think) and for me at least twice as long. I have complete confidence in his care and treatment for both of us, and was disappointed the few times he was unavailable, over the years. We continue to want to see him, even though the time and distance to travel has become harder for us as we age and our health needs increase. He has our thanks and our prayers.Feb 24,2017
