    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Office staff

It's unfortunate that who you hire affect your credibility. On more than one occasion, when calling the office Dr Lapenna's staff have been very rude and disrespectful, making me feel as if I was annoying even though I was making the call as per the doctor. The viciting nurse at my house needed to speak to the doctor and when she called the office she was also met by the rude and unprofessional staff. When I explained to the women in the phone that every time I called I was greeted with an attitude and I think it's time I look for a new primary doctor she abruptly says, just let me know where I can send the medical records.

Great Doctor!!!!! Horrible Staff.

Dr. Lapenna is fine doctor with great knowledge and compassion for his patient. Yes you wait a long time to see him but I justify this by the amount of patients he has and the time he share with each one. I would and have recommended him to many friends and family. With that said, his office staff is a horror not sure why this is. Nasty all the time....They get annoyed when you call for an appointment or need test results. Definitely recommend Dr. but beware of staff.....
