From the moment Dr Lagatta took my case he treated me with the utmost kindness, caring and respect. His calm professional manner and genuine commitment to helping me were palpable. Dr Lagatta was able to diagnosis the cause of my life-threatening medical problem while the other doctors were not. I am in awe of his abilities as a physician and forever appreciative to be his patient. These words do not adequately express my deep appreciation to him.

He is one of the most knowledgeable doctors I have ever met. He is very friendly and understanding. He give you a lot of good information in your sessions. Very detail oriented doctor. He had all my number and explained what they mean, trouble shooted why some numbers would be off. I have also been seeing a urologist and he gave me great insight to some of the proceedures they do and the benefits and risks. You can tell he really cares. He is what all doctors should aspire to be

I've had hypertension my entire adult life. It was generally controlled, but as I've gotten older, my medications must be modified as my BP fluctuates. Dr. LaGatta gave me the most thorough exam and analysis of my condition I've ever had. He modified my meds, and my BP is the best it's been in years. Moreover, Dr. LaGatta has a warm and genuine approach to his patients. He was never hurried or condescending. He asked lots of questions and really listened to my answers. I highly recommend him!

Dr. La Gatta is the most compassionate physician I know in Central FL, and being a nurse practitioner, I know many physicians! Both he and his NP actually listen to the patient and answer all questions and concerns without making one feel rushed. His NP diagnosed me w/a rare disease unrelated to nephrology which was confirmed by Dr. La Gatta. For over a year, I had seen 3 physicians several times and was brushed off. After being on meds for 5 days, I felt like a new person, full of energy.

Dr. LaGatta is, by far, the most knowledgable, competent, caring physician I've ever encountered. He literally saved my mother's life. She has Wegener's Granulomatisis that was in an advanced state by the time her primary doctor referred her to a nephrologist. Dr. LaGatta's expertise in the area of this particular disease was instrumental in not only halting the progression, but ultimately sending it into remission. During the whole process, Dr. LaGatta treated my mother like she was his own.

Excellent. Dr LaGatta demonstrates a level of concern unique in healthcare circles. He is particularly well prepared for each office visit having reviewed test records ahead of time, even those ordered by physicians other than him. His team is very well integrated and professional. The practice shows evidence of being well managed with a minimum of bureaucracy.

Dr LaGatta has been a life saver for my husband, Oakley. He amazes us with his knowledge and effort to help. You will not find a more compassionate, caring physician than Dr LaGatta. He will take whatever time is needed to listen to you and offer treatment alternatives that may not have been presented previously. He is an excellent team player for anyone with multiple organ failures and will consult and work with your other physicians to insure you have the best treatments possible. Call him.
