 "AMAZING! VERY SMART, KIND, HELPFUL!!!I interviewed two doctors prior to Lauraine and both were unacceptable. One was even off the wall drunk. So you can imagine how happy I was to find Lauraine. She was extremely helpful, kind, grounded and knows her stuff. She guided me through the entire process and stayed in touch to make sure that everything was working out for me. A true gem in a sea of practitioners that are not worth engaging with. Be as lucky as I was...choose MMR NY."
