Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Treating pain is one of the most difficult things a Physician can do. Unless you have a spinal condition that is contributing to your pain, the best thing you can do is lose weight and exercise/swim for your back issue. If you want pills, you will find them. But, ultimately, its on you, not the Doctor. Own your stuff. Lagz is a good Doctor and he will tell you the dangers and if your willing, he will help you. But please, don't b.s. and say you were misled.

He's kind of a c word. His bedside manner is so awful I suspect his family name is Mengele. You know when cartoon characters dress up like a doctor as a gag to fool the person chasing them? They have a better idea of medicine than "Dr." Lagattuata. If you want your health to sink faster than the Titanic then this major b-hole is the doctor for you.

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.
