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!

Dr. LaMotta has given us peace of mind in that we feel we are getting proper medical care a sometimes difficult thing to get in todays world. Please keep up the good work Dr. LaMotta!

from Paul in FL March 22, 2018 for Edward P. LaMotta, MD

Dr. Lamotta is the best Doctor I have ever had. I have been seeing him for 12 years, and I would love to continue seeing him until his retirement. I feel like he is one of my best friends. He is extremely knowledgeable, and experienced.

from Sherrie in FL March 20, 2018 for Edward P. LaMotta, MD

Dr. Lamotta is a one-of-a kind doctor in this new era of managed health care that insists on getting patients in and out as fast as possible and doesn't allow for a genuine doctor/patient relationship to develop. Dr. Lamotta is the best physician I've ever encountered and he will always remain in my heart as an example of true excellence and compassion.

from Linda in FL March 16, 2018 for Edward P. LaMotta, MD

Ed LaMotta listens and takes time to get the problem solved. The office is run peacefully and everyone drives as much time as needed. Patients are not rushed.

from Kathleen in FL March 6, 2018 for Edward P. LaMotta, MD

If you look up the word dedicated in Merriam-Webster Dictionary - you will see a great photo of Dr. Edward LaMotta. One of the all-time really great guys and a committed and very dedicated physician. I recall when he first affiliated with MDVIP he explained to my husband and me that he currently had over 4,000 patients which allowed him very little time to spend with anyone - but by becoming… See more

from Suzette in IL March 5, 2018 for Edward P. LaMotta, MD

I was so happy to find that Dr. LaMotta was still on Sanibel when we returned to the island recently as part-time residents. He was my primary physician for many years when we lived here full-time 20 years ago. I was never able to find a doctor in the Chicago area that I trusted with my health as much as Dr. LaMotta! He is very personable, attentive and responsive, and really cares about my… See more

Dr Ed Lamotta has been our primary care doctor for almost 25 years now. He is without a doubt one of the best diagnosticians in the profession and over the years he's taken care of my wife and I with a personal approach that should be an example for any physician. Dr. Ed is never too busy to spend time with his patients to be sure that all concerns are addressed. I've never known him… See more
