Ratings for Dr. John A. La Fata
Dr. La Fata is the best. I have been going to him for about 20 years. Even though it is over 45 minutes to his office and I live in a different county, there is no way I would ever change. He listens to and answers my questions. The staff is always friendly and helpful. I don't think that I have ever waited more than 15 minutes to be taken back to the exam room. I would definitely recommend him and his office.
My 81 year old mother wanted to go to a woman doctor in Dr. La Fata's office and had been to Dr. La Fata in the past. Because she was a patient of Dr. La Fata a few years back, she was told that Dr. La Fata would not let her switch to the woman doctor. I wrote a letter and faxed it to the office and never received a reply.
I found Dr.LaFata to be very unprofessional. Not willing to listen. Felt very rushed. Quick in/quick out. Showed no compassion, quick to say it is all in your head and wanted to prescribe antidepressant. Staff appeared very fearful of him. Poor communication, not receiving calls regarding abnormal lab/results. Had to get on my own, and when I called office had to clear everything via MD who was sometimes difficult to find. I was in the hospital for a week and never saw him. I am now looking for another PCP.
