We just LOVE Dr. Laforte! I will recommend her to any mother! She has been all three of my children provider since I had my first child and now he is 17 years old. He is about to graduate from high school with honors! He is soon on his way to college. I'm telling you this because I raised my children with Dr. Laforte. She is awesome! She is so caring and nurturing. She CARES about the children as well as the parents. I wouldn't have had it no other way. My children love her and so do I! God made a true angel when he made her! Thank you for allowing me to share this with you.Oct 20,2017
