As a former nurse I am usually wary of trying new doctors but Dr. Lagares was recommended and the exam and forthcoming suggestions were skillful and positive. It was a good experience.

Two office visits and surgery. He treated us very well. Especially this last visit. He took the time to explain all aspects of what happens next to my husband and I.

After my second visit with Dr. Lagares things are still looking good. We are planning for the surgery that will be required and he addressed all of my questions and concerns for the procedure. His assistant could have been a little nicer and considerate towards me especially knowing I have a lot of fears about everything really. Before I left the office they did schedule me for a CT scan at Mount Pleasant and I was able to get that done while I was still near Charleston. As for the CT tech he did a poor job, he pushed the IV needle in too far and hurt my arm badly then attempted to blame me for pushing it in. I’ve had 3 scans prior and 2 of them called for the dye contrast with the IV and none of them hurt like this. All the others aside Dr. Lagares still seems like the right person to help me through all this. My only fear is how I’ll be treated prior surgery and then afterwards.

Dr Lagares-Garcia was very kind and compassionate. He listened attentively to my concerns, had familiarized himself with my medical history prior to walking in the room, answered all of my questions, and treated my condition successfully. I highly recommend Dr Legares-Garcia.

I was impressed with the entire office. The receptionist was pleasant and made me feel welcome. The nurse, Lisa, was very comforting. I've always admired Dr. Lagares and was happy when my GI doctor referred me to him.

Dr. Lagares is a wonderful, caring doctor. Doesn't dismiss ANY symptoms you may mention, no matter how minor or vague. He is most definitely the best surgeon to be found between Charleston and Myrtle Beach (where I live). I asked my Primary if there was anyone in the MB area and his reply was "I wouldn't even give you a referral. Lagares is the only one I send my patients to." (My primary is pretty outstanding as well!)
