Ratings for Dr. Henry Lapointe
Very clear and to the point, and knows what he's doing. His secretary/contactperson however, is very hard to get in touch with (even during business hours) which leaves you with a lot of questions un-answered. This is unpleasant post-surgery, especially when there are complications
Awesome surgeon. I was really nervous going into my first consult, but I left with an appointment for double jaw surgery thanks to Dr. Lapointe and his team! Very accommodating and willing to answer every question I had. Explained the surgery right down to the fine details and showed me exactly what was wrong with my jaw- I had never had this explained to me before and it was huge in helping me understand the need for the surgery. Would recommend to anyone! Make the appointment!
I can't believe all the bad reviews on here! That said, my experience with Dr Lapointe was way back in 2002/2003. My review is based on my 2003 jaw surgery (LeForte I Sagittal Split & Genioplasty) and wisdom teeth removal. I was downright terrified about having jaw surgery, but after several appointments with Dr Lapointe, I knew I was in good hands. He was very patient and thorough explaining the procedure and risks involved. My parents (dad especially) had been very concerned as well, that is until they met with Dr Lapointe and could tell that he's very knowledgeable and caring. I had jaw surgery to correct a bad overbite + 4 wisdom teeth removed in March 2003 and it was flawless. Recovery wasn't fun, but that's surgery for you. Nothing went wrong and I'm beyond thankful to this day (I was 17 when I had surgery, now age 31) that I chose to have this surgery. It impacted my self-esteem and confidence in ways I can't begin to explain! I see a lot of bad reviews, so perhaps he isn't what he used to be. I would doubt that though! I have all good things to say about him, and his staff + the whole experience (before and after surgery). I wouldn't hesitate to see him again. Hopefully there is no more surgery in my future though. :)
Awesome surgeon, very polite, informative and extremely sensitive to the needs of his patients. Easy to talk to and willing to explain procedures in simple terms so you are fully aware of what is happening.My first appointment ran much later than anticipated but i never felt they were rushing me out. They were super thorough and i left feeling confident that I was making the right decision. His team is always happy, helpful and accommodating. In my opinion his teams' positive attitudes are attributed to the way that they're treated in the workplace. Carrie, the receptionist- Phenomenal! 10/10! I had surgery mid December and Dr. Lapointe reached out personally via phone to follow up in regards to some questions I had. Awesome team. even better surgeon. Don't listen to the negative garbage below. Be aware that people writing reviews are usually the ones quick to complain. Do yourself the favor and make the appointment...meet the team. You won't regret it!
He behaves like he is out of this world and whatever he gonna do for you is your only option. Very arrogant. He needs to be more empathetic and human. Should improve his manners
