My experience: Not Bad. Was not personally examined by the Doctor, but her staff did a great job. I did see the Doctor in her office and I was greeted with a warm smile.

Once I was called, I was examined and had numerous tests done very quickly. Appointment was made to return for results - ok if there is something to follow up with but could be a waste of another 2 hours to hear everything is ok.

My appointment was at 9:30 am, the Doctor arrived almost at 11:00 am rushing then took such a long break in her office that I left and would not go there ever again.

While the wait was quite long because I was seen on a Saturday, it was well worth it. Everyone in the office is very welcoming and caring. Dr. Lafontant was very nice and she is super through. I am happy that I have finally found a doctor that is looking at my overall health. I will definitely continue to be a patient.

This doctor was very disrespectful. I simply asked a few questions which is something you are supposed to do, and she responded with attitude and included her staff in justifying what she thinks is appropriate work ethics in her office.

Overall, this is a great clinic to go visit. They are very friendly, professional and easy to talk to. Although this is a very busy clinic...the reasona why are very obvious once you receive service from them. Thier diagnostic lab is now located across the street if you ever need blood work. I am very happy with this doctor...even with a long wait.

One of the receptionist was very rude. It the other was very nice. When I asked her how long will be the wait time and that was after one hour she made a big deal about it and even told the doctor that I was complaining. All I said is what is the wait time giving that I have been here an hour and I have a child with me. The doctor this time was a bit better than last time but still she is still rude. The only reason I came back is because they have me on file and it’s literally next to my house. Didn’t want to bother dealing with another doctor or going far. Other than that the doctor did the exam. Let’s hope they will run the test for it.

The visit was a huge disappointment. The office staff were very rude to each other and the patients. I had no idea what was happening and had to go back and forth from one staff to the other. Very frustrating.

She's an excellent and thorough doctor, but I had to changed her because of the wait time in the office. My longest wait time was 3 1/2 hours. I appreciate all the test that was done, for the insurance purpose, but the wait time. Also, waiting for the result was over 2 hours.

The doctor had me come in 1hour and 45 minutes early and yet it took her over 1 hour and 30 minutes to see me. In other words, she wasted my time and had me waiting a long time. To top things off, the doctor expects me to return to hear my results. Who does that? It's super archaic. I told them that I do not want to wait the next time for my results and instead prefer that they email me or snail me my results. They said they will not and will definitely call me if my results are abnormal. Anyway, I hope to never have to deal with this doctor again. I believe that blood work and other lab tests were conducted simply to milk money off of my insurance. I doubt I actually needed blood work. I hope I do not receive a fat bill for the blood work.

In my 12+ years of seeing an OB/GYN & getting an annual physical I have never had a more through examination done.... She was very patient and not once did i feel like she was in a rush to get through her patient list.

Didn't make me feel comfortable during visit. Inconvenienced me by having me get sonogram on different day, and having to take blood in different office. Also, would not give me the medication I needed as needed. Would not recommend.

The nurses were very nice. However the doctor had a bit of an attitude. I had my child stroller with me in her tiny room and she almost refused to come in because of it until I actually asked if there was a problem. She wasn't a good listener to my situation. And the follow up for my test results doesn't make sense. I was told to come back after 3 weeks as it takes this long to get the results. Not sure why do I need to come back after I was treated and if the results could be fine. This tells me that they won't actually check my results until I come back.

I came in for routine check up. Everything was fine. Long wait time but the office was full so I figured she must be a good doctor if everyone was waiting. I came back for my second visit thinking that would be it, instead I had a million sonograms taken that I had not requested and was never told why. Then I come for my last visit, for my results and my appointment was scheduled for 11:30am and it is currently 3pm and I still haven't been seen.

Dr. Lafontant is an awesome physician who goes above and beyond to make sure that the overall health of her patients are evaluated. She's an OB/GYN but she made sure that I had every test done to make sure that before my husband and I discussed conception my body would be able to get pregnant, stay pregnant and maintain a pregnancy. After years of seeing a fertility specialist, she has done more for me than he ever did and I've only been her patient for 3 short months. She's awesome....schedule your appointment, arrive early, bring cash for your copay and you'll not regret. Wait time can be a bit much, but that should tell you that she's good at what she does. Alleviate the wait and come before the office opens or towards the afternoon time after the rush is over. Her office staff has always been very nice and professional towards me. They keep the patients engaged and I, personally, have not heard any gossip amongst them.

Doctor....when I finally saw her 3hours later, was genuine, warm,kind and friendly. She was VERY thorough and seems to take a preventative and holistic approach to Women's health. Hey there 2hours before scheduled appointment and charge up your mobile device for web browsing/texting while you wait.
