Unfortunately Dr. Lagattuta was one of the worst Dr.s I've ever seen. He was extremely arrogant and rude. I was told within seconds of him walking into the room that he knew everything and there was nothing wrong with me. The Dr.'s exact words. . . Despite suffering from constant severe pain due to breaking my neck and back in a sports injury. I have been trying hard to recover and not just mask the issue, which lead me to Dr. Lagattuta. The nurse apologized & stated this is common treatment.

I love this Dr he has helped me with my back and I feel great!I recomend him to all he is not only a dr but concerned one.

Awesome!He is so direct and skips the BS! He is realistic when it comes to pain management.He cares for his patients very much.Wants us to not be in pain but he is cautious,as to not get us dangerously addicted.My last pain management specialist,did not care about my well being,he kept feeding me more & more opiates to the point where I almost died.Dr.Lagattuta actually cares about your pain and well being too.So,he balances everything out and checks up with you too to make sure you are healthy.

Dr lags does not treat patient in a professional manner. Often he will cancel, or change appointments with very little notice(24 hours ). I am a patient that works full time and need to request time off for appointments. I have verbalized my disappointment to hi staff as well as providers. I feel that he doesn't consider his patient time as important. I understand occasional urgent reasons for canceling appointment,but this happens often. The office cancels appointments frequently.
