Love this doc! He knows his stuff. Gave me exactly what I needed for my infected eyelid and examined my eyes after I complained of near and distance vision problems. As he explained it, if I couldn't pass the rigatoni/ziti test(visually tell the difference as I was eating), then I needed some near-vision correction. Almost as good, he's got a great sense of humor, which goes a long way in my book. Downside was that my appointment was over 30 minutes late because Dr. LaRocca was performing surgery at the hospital. Two patients waiting before me,but he made the time up quickly.

The staff was professional and courteous, as was Dr. Larocca.. He was funny and personal and his treatment plan cured me of a fairly severe eye infection quickly. I would recommend him to a friend.
