misdiagnosed

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.

I have been attending Dr. Laporta's practice for many years, in my opinion he is the very best OB-GYN provider on Staten Island. I have suggested to family members, who are now his patients as well. We all love him and his office staff! Highly recommendable.

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!
