Dr Russel Laforte is a wonderful, highly skilled and great doctor. He has been my Doctor for 12 years and have kept him as my Doctor for the past 4 years even though I live near San Antonio.It was sad to leave him with this visit but I needed a primary Doctor here where I live. He has been a truly dedicated, understanding and outstanding Doctor. You are fortunate to have him on your staff. thank you .Aug 14,2017
Seems up to date on health issues and medications. Helpful in analyzing issues I might question. Engages fully in one on one conversation about medical and non medical matters...certainly not distant or elusive.Aug 17,2017
