    I just want to say I trust Dr. Lattuga with my life. Thanks to his profession and experience I'm very happy with both surgeries he has performed on me with his colleagues. I'm still recovering from my last surgery and have noticed some improvements with neuropathy down my legs. Dr. Lattuga and staff always show concern and have always been pleasant they are beautiful people. I will definitely recommend Dr. Lattuga. May God bless them all.
