Excellent staff and doctor

The staff squeezed me in for an earlier appointment because I was concerned about the urine test results ordered by my primary care physician. Dr. LaFontaine explained to me the test results in great details and in a way a person without medical background would understand. I have got the assessment from another urologist (a personal friend who was not living in the Boston area), and his assessment was consistent with Dr. LaFontaine's. I think Dr. LaFontaine can be trusted.

probably good doctor, but arrogant

I had a bad experience being treated like a second grader. No respect or sympathy for what bothers me. Too bad, probably good specialist.

SERVICE REEP.

I have been seeing Dr. Lafontaine for about 7 years. I have nothing but good things to say about him, and his staff. He is punctual, caring, thorough, pleasant to talk to, and you never feel that your appointment is being rushed. I think he is great!!
