I went to see Mr. Laporta (does not rate being called doctor) last Friday complaining of a possible UTI. Mr. Laporta examined me and prescribed medicine that I was to take for 3 days. After the 3 days were up, I felt worse. I call his office on Monday morning at 8:45 a.m. and spoke with Mr. Laporta. I told him that I completed all the medicine that he prescribed and I feel worse. He told me to hang in there for a few more days. I told him I feel really sick for which he replied "I don't have a magic wand". Needless to say I was appalled. I immediately went to the emergency room and after being seen by the doctor, it was determined that I have a UTI. The medicine that Mr. Laporta prescribed for me was not for a UTI but for a yeast infection. NOT!!!!!!! The medicine that the ER gave me while I was there and prescribed for me to take over the next 7 days worked almost immediately. THANK GOD FOR REAL DOCTORS..... THIS MAN SHOULD LOSE HIS LICENSE. A REAL QUACK. Perhaps the American Medical Association should look into this butcher. To think this quack delivers babies.
Dr Laporta, in my opinion, is one of the worst doctors I have ever dealt with. When I gave birth prematurely to my twin daughters at 22 weeks, Dr Laporta told my husband 'it is what it is, you can have other children'. To say this to a grieving father, who just lost his beloved IVF miracle twin daughters, is so insensitive and disgusting. I wouldn't send a pregnant dog or cat to his office to have him deliver. His bedside manner is the worst I have ever dealt with and his smugness to both myself, my very concerned husband and family while I was in the hospital was despicable; he is the least compassionate doctor. I wish I could write all of the bad experiences with him on here but then this would be a novel. BEWARE!
