My provider was very helpful in assuring me of the process to recovery. He was also very helpful in navigating me through setting up needed tests, and easing my anxiety about getting the test.

The actual appointment was very short, but I suppose it didn't take long to figure out what was going on with me!

[...] Dr. Laplante was wonderful. He has a very good bedside manner, is sympathetic, listened to what I had to say and explained things to the best of his ability. He is not arrogant, like some others in his profession. I would recommend him and look forward to my next visit with him.

Dr LaPlante is my hero. He fit me in on my first visit and his staff worked hard to help me get appiontments to help me with the pain of my condition. Dr LaPlante knew immediatly what needed to be done and took care of it with 2 procedures, both of which continue to relive me of my pain. I am forever grateful. Dr LaPlante was always supportive and caring.

Doctor was frustrated with treatments I've had that haven't worked, but he did ask me where the pain was and said we could try this area. He suggested pain medication, but I have a great deal of problems with medicine side effects. I need a doctor that is " a fighter" and will keep options open.

Very compassionate depth of knowledge

This provider seemed uninterested In "discussing" my problem. His scope of care was narrow and he told me what he could do for me and nothing else (no options). I was able to get a few answers to my questions but he made me feel I was taking up his valuable time.

After the appointment, I could not recall any pertinent information the provider provided. He hadn't looked at the many x-rays I provided his office.

Very informative & satisfying visit.

Overall good job. I would have liked more information about next steps and possible treatment options based on his experience. He basically ordered an MRI (which I couldn't get for 2 weeks) and said "we'll see after that". I recognize that the MRI is needed before next steps are determined, but based on my situation and his knowledge I thought he could have been more specific on the likelihood of specific next steps. He also did not make any arrangements to check-in after prescribing two RX's to see if they were helping, or let me know if there was anything else I could do in the interim. I asked for the post exam summary to be printed out and it showed various exercises I could do but he didn't mention them during the visit so I wasn't sure if they applied to me. Now I'm just waiting in pain for the MRI, then have to wait another week for my follow up appointment.
