" FMC has always made me feel that I was important and that my health was their main concern."

Every doctor, physician assistant, nurse practitioner or lab technician I have seen at FMC has always made me feel that I was important and that my health was their main concern. Dr. Hughes always tells you like it is; there’s no hiding anything. Dr. Larue is also one to check any complaint for any illness thoroughly. Alise Pastorik takes the time to listen and answer all of your questions. Dr. Chami also makes sure you are an informed patient and makes sure you understand everything about your care and treatment. With four active daughters, there have been so many doctors others over the years that have helped us through broken bones and more.

- Tammy B.

Dr. LaRue was born in Lakeland, Florida and raised in Winter Haven.  Although he is a diehard Auburn fan, his roots are firmly planted here in our state.  An avid tennis player and boatsman, accomplished gardener, and classical music aficionado, he is often found enjoying the outdoors and tending to his landscape. Married with four children, Dr. LaRue balances his time between church, family and friends.
