Edward P. LaMotta, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I love being a physician and taking care of you. As my physician father, who practiced medicine in NYC for 54 years, always said, “Treat all your patients like family members.” Indeed you are my family.

My goal is to collaborate with you to manage and anticipate your unique healthcare needs. As an MDVIP-affiliated doctor we will be able to provide same day or next day appointments that are unhurried and on time - no waiting! As an MDVIP patient you will receive a yearly extensive wellness exam that includes state of the art lab testing sanctioned by the renowned Cleveland Clinic. Furthermore we will closely collaborate on what it takes to stay on the path to wellness. You will feel welcomed by the relaxed individualized attention you will receive from everyone in our office!
