Thankful daughter

I have had a hard time finding a doctor who would listen, take time with, and actually treat my mom’s conditions - not just reduce symptoms through meds or dismiss her with the statement, “Well, you are aging.” While I will admit the average person may not get his dry wit or his use of humerous sarcasm, my mom absolutely loved him. He is literally the first doctor in the 18yrs of living in NC that my mom has loved. Some may see him as having a poor bedside manner, I would say those people just didn’t get his sense of humor. We were quite saddened to hear Dr Lofaso left the practice recently and now we have the daunting task of finding a new doctor for her. He always took his time with her and answered every question she had without ever making her feel dumb or insignificant. I can only hope we find another doctor that she can connect with as easily as she did with Dr. Lofaso. I am thankful for the time my mom had him as her doctor.

Unacceptable

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!

Phony

Initialy,Dr.Lofaso seemed like a caring doctor.However, after I missed an appointment,in which I also called to cancel, he sent me aletter terminating me as his patient.Or it was because he said I didn't pay his annual fee for being my doctor.However, I called his receptionist to pay over the phone and she said she could not do that.The point I am making is, after about 5 years of being his patient he did not have the courtesy or decency to return my call so I can explain to him what I just stated. Don't, be fooled by his phony smile or his phony concern for you. Because once you have any kind of issue with him he will drop you immediately. He is about the almighty dollar. Not only did he do this to me, but also to other patients of his I know. BIG PHONEY.

Yearly fee???

When I went for my initial appointment- I was shocked he served me with a two page document stating if I chose him as my dr. I would need to pay an additional $100 a year. What??? For concierge service??? In case I call him??? I think these are things should be mentioned prior to your dr. Visit!!!! If I would have known I wouldn't have waisted my time initially!
