I would recommend Dr. Lagares-Garcia to anyone, he is very knowledgeable and he walks you through every step, and makes you feel comfortable. He is one of the best doctors i have ever went to and my life changed for the better drastically after my surgery.

Run for your life. He is rude and arrogant and does not listen to help you. I was much worse after leaving the hospital than when I went in.

Dr. Legares is very knowledgeable, capable and has a great bedside manner. He is a pro and knows how to truly care for your individual needs. He tells you exactly what to expect for your surgery and answers any questions you may have. I love the fact he is very concerned and involved in his patients recovery as well.

Stay away from this surgeon. He operated on my mother and did a horrible surgery but claimed that it went well. Only after 2 years when my mother was in critical shape and was looked at by another surgeon , we found out that this guy is a butcher who knows how to use a robot . Stay away from him!!! He has No right to operate on people.

I went to Dr. Lagares to correct a problem that was created when I had surgery by General surgeon who did not have the experience or skill to perform the surgery. Dr. Lagares it's one of those surgeons who has the skill to shift on the fly, in other words what he is presented with when he opens the patient is worse than he anticipated but he can still deal with it because he is such a skilled surgeon. The surgery that the doctor performed on me tremendously improved the quality of my life
