Ratings for Dr. Peter F. LoFaso
I got up and left, very poor bedside manner, did not even discuss root of my problem, just dismissed me as if I was a piece of crap. He is very arrogant and rude, and takes no time to discuss any alternatives to help me with my problem. He is in middle of a horse field, and lacks compassion and respect which any human being deserves!
HORRIBLE BUSINESS!!! The Dr. was decent I suppose, he smiled and said hello when I entered, but the office staff was very rude. As I approached the receptionist, I got the distinct impression that I was interrupting a very important text message because she without looking up from her cell phone pushed a clipboard at me and quite rudely said "Sign in." After waiting a solid 45 minutes without any acknowledgement, I left. OVER a year later, I received a bill from them stating that I owed them $10 for missing my appointment. When I called on multiple occassions to contest this fee, I was told several times that someone would get back to me, but to this day, no one has. However, I still receive the same bill for $10 which I refuse to pay. Avoid this business at all costs!
When my Husband who has a different insurance than I do was assured by Dr. LoFaso's staff that they accepted his insurance, took his co-pay (twice) and then was told by his billing department (who is off site) oops we don't take it you owe us hundreds of $$$)had a balance on his account he refused to refil my prescriptions. What kind of a doctor holds a patient's prescriptions hostage for money on a different patient's account. I had no balance, didn't even owe a co-pay. Then when we did not pay his $100 concierge fee ... he dropped us ... all while I was actively being treated for specific conditions ... what physician does that ?? I agree with a prior post: Emotionally erratic, fires patients who question any aspect of billing issues. Tells them they have 30 days to find another doctor. HE CHARGES $100 A YEAR TO BE HIS PATIENT, as if he is a CONCIERGE PHYSICIAN. Make your own decisions, but just be aware of what you are getting into.
Reading the reviews, some are just plain wrong. Dr. Lafaso charges 100.00 to part of his practice. By doing this he almost always see's you within 15 minutes of your scheduled appointment. He is never in hurry to get you out to see the next patient. He takes his time. He is very knowledgeable and has seen problems in drug interactions BEFORE the so called specialists. I have yet in 2 years seen him make a wrong diagnostic. I like his direct approach and he tells you the issue Straight. If you call his service after hours and on the weekends, he calls you back. Answers your questions and treats you like a person and friend, not many Doctors do that.
Dr. Lofaso sees through the drug seeking behaviors of the emotionally needy south Floridian whiners. He tells it as he sees it. Poor little retirees waiting for their next all you can eat buffet to open will not find sympathy with Dr.L. As for the comments against Angelica, they seem to be racially motivated by the same types who want to be coddled every step of the way. The man knows his facts. If you do not like "what you see is what you get" then go elsewhere. If you can deal with reality rather than having your own inner story reinforced, he's your doctor. He's mine and will remain so.
Front desk person very rude and ignored me while I was standing at the window while she was on a personal call. She looked at me and did not even acknowledge me. So I went to sit down. She finished call and finally she acknowledged me later after I sat down. Previously refused to tell dr my husband wanted to talk to him and she refused to tell him to call. He was going to tell him about her rudeness and being unprofessional and un friendly. We will go to another dr and never go back. No one should be treated like this. Husband likes doctor (good and nice) but have to deal with front desk person. I am sure doctor has lost other patients if she treats them like she did us. Dr also want an additional $100 to keep as doctor. Not worth it with her. Not good customer service even with out that fee.
I am very upset with Dr. Lofaso and his staff. I have had several visits and on every visit he had a very arrogant attitude. I switched jobs and insurance companies at the first of the year and called in to cancel a check up I had scheduled. I received a no-show fee of $35. I disputed this to the office and was told to call the billing office. After 6 months of going back and forth I received a letter from a collections agency on this $35. I called to talk to Dr. Lofaso and was told he would not speak on the phone and I would need to send him a letter. It's not about the money it is more about the principle. It seems to be more of a scam than anything. The thing that gets me the most as that there is nothing I can do. Run far away from this doctor. I can only imagine if I really had an issue what I would have went through.
Rude and uncaring staff. Totally Discourteous. Tries to triage patients without speaking to them..Long waits in the office waiting room. Dr is very flippant and tries to be a wise ass. Cannot get to see Dr in an emergency.....sends everone to emergency rooms and labs......does not do anything himself. Angelica makes tons of mistakes and does not return calls....Dr will not speak to you on phone......Recently had to tell him to @#$%^&*()!@# off and find another physician with a real staff.
