“I found Dr. LaPorte very encouraging, very compassionate, and professional. He is a good doctor, I trust him.” Patricia, April 2019.
“I had Rotator Cuff surgery on my left shoulder with Dr. LaPorte. This was my sixth different surgery since 2002 that has been done at Bone and Joint. My experience with Bone and Joint has been nothing but professional, that is why, if Bone and Joint can perform a surgery I may need in the future, it will be done there. I highly recommend using their services. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being on the top, I would give their services a 20. Thank you Bone and Joint.” Dave C, Oct. 2018.
