Go to a tiajuna clinic behind a strip joint to get better care than this hateful "dr." Claims to be chicago bears team dr. At one time. This means hes an expert turning athletic strong young men into painkiller junkies drooling over ignored concussions just to get millionaires onto field. If he sold his soul and cleared concussed badly injured players to play do you think he gives a crap about us lesser mortals? The nfl is going down because of unethical drs. Like him. If he didnt care about walter payton do you think he cares about you? He belittles and screams at his patients as he knows hes soon to be spending years in a courtroom defending his inaction to 45 year old dementia patients he treated in chicago. Hes a pathetic little wimp bully that talks loud so the whole office hears him. But only to women kids and the elderly. Never to a man. His stable of remedial drs are emulating him to keep working. DONT COME HERE.

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.

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.
