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 wait time can sometimes be long BUT she is a wonderful provider who checks you thoroughly and is a big advocate on women's health. She truly cares and she provides quality care at its best. One of the best doctors I have had.

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.

Absolutely ridiculous. I would never recommend this place. Plus it doesn't even look that sanitary inside.

There are no "appointment" times. Apparently you make one but then end up waiting about 2 hours. The doctor was no where to be found but apparently this is how she functions. She lets the patients build up and then shows up 3 hours after her appointments are to begin. I waited 2 hours to then be told I still had people ahead of me since it's more of a "first come, first serve" basis. Unreal. I won't be going back.

Dr. Lafontant took care of me and answered my questions. Unfortunately, the overall office ambiance is so bad that I don't want to return to this office again. The staff was very unprofessional, the doctor was professional and courteous with me but there was constant bickering between other staff and doctors and Dr. Lafontant in front of other patients. The office was cramped and odd inside.

I don't usually write reviews but I have to write one for this visit because it was completely horrendous. My visit to this clinic was my absolute worst experience seeing a doctor. I do not recommend that anyone go to this clinic. I had an appointment for 10:00 am and did not get seen until 1:00 pm and I was only seen because I asked for my cash back, at which point they opened a room for me to be seen. Once the doctor came in she offered me an apology but never once looked me in the eye. I went in because I was having trouble with my birth control and without knowing my medical history the doctor just said that I could only do the depo shot without telling me the side effects or what my other options were. The staff was not friendly and no one bothered to tell me what they were going to do to me or explain anything. The receptionist out front caught an attitude any time I asked how long I would be waiting or how many people were in front of me. The phlebotomist bruised me. The medical assistants were impersonal and very cold. Once I was the done I sat and waited to talk to the doctor and she said that she could not give me any information until she had all my labs even though she had 3 sonograms and the only thing missing was my blood work. Overall I am very unhappy and I will not be returning. The people at this clinic really need to learn proper bedside manner.

I booked my appointment through ZocDoc a week in advance for birth control consultation. However when I showed up, the medical office had no record of my appointment. The receptionist seemed mad about it and had an attitude. I paid my copay, blood pressure checked, vitals, etc and met with the doctor for the consultation. We sat a spoke and then she told me to change into the gown for a Pap smear. I again had to explain the reason for my visit. I was advised that she needed some blood work and a circulation test before prescribing me the birth control. Ok no problem. I go through the testing and get my blood drawn and make an appointment for a follow up appointment the following week. Now I get a bill from a lab for tests that were done. Why???? I have insurance that is active and in good standing. I've never had any insurance problems let alone an outstanding bill. So made an appointment for birth control. I have a huge headache and still no birth control to help with menstrual cramps. Not happy.

I have seen her twice. The first time there was a 2.5 hour wait. I was moved to a patient room for 40 minutes where I over heard her giving a herpies diagnosis to a patient next door. She was not very professional. My second visit, she was late to work. I once again did not see her on time. I kept being told to wait, until I finally got seen at 11:30 for my 9:30 appointment. She wasn't prepared to speak to me about my health records, and rushed me through them. She was not informed and once again unprofessional. I've decided to take my healthcare else where due to her lack of interest in my health and unprofessionalism.
