goodFeb 04,2019
My husband and I have been his patients for many years. My husband passed in 2015. Dr. Laforte was always very kind and patient with my husband who could be difficult at times. He has been an excellent doctor for me. There were a couple of times during the past 4 years where I had a medical issue and he would actually call me on the weekend to check on me, discuss any issues with me. I'm very happy with the treatment I receive from him. I couldn't ask for a better doctor !Feb 01,2019
