We love dr. Lagnese
we love dr. lagnese and how she never rushes and listens to everything we have to say. also how she talks to my children!
Dr Lagnese has been our peditrician for almost 20years. She is a wonderful doctor and I would recommend her to anyone. We will be lost when she decides to retire! Thank You
Dr. Lagnese is always extremely attentive, empathetic, and gentle with our children. We appreciate her care and concern and overall knowledge on what is important to worry about or what issues will work themselves out.
Absolutely love Dr. Lagnese. She is the pediatrician we turn to for well checks and has established a trust with both of my kids that ease the experience of going to the doctors. Everyone in the office has shown care and concern and are always friendly. Also love the other practitioners (especially Ayers) we have seen when unable to schedule with Lagnese.
we love Dr.Lagnese. She is an excellent doctor, and a very caring person. We feel very blessed to have her!!!
we've been with this doctor for a couple years and it's always been a pleasant experience
We have been with this practice since our children were born, and can't say enough good things about the care we have received.
As always, Dr Lagnese went above and beyond. She eased my fears and made me feel like a normal person and not a paranoid parent. She is always very professional and the kids love her. I recommend her to all of my patients.
Dr. Lagnese truly cares about her patients. She takes the time to ask the much needed questions. She is very personable and easy to talk to regarding my child's health.
Always spends as much time as needed with every patient. Just a great doctor
Everyone was so friendly. My children were at ease throughout the appointment, even during shots. I felt like everyone had my child's best interests at heart and really enjoyed working with the children.
Dr. Lagnese is the best, she is very calming to us as concerned parents. She has always given us accurate information re: our children and their medical needs.
I waited in the exam room for a very long time.
Dr Lagnese and Nurse Shelly are the greatest and have been since our family has been going to them 19 years ago. Thank You
Dr. Lagnase is the gold standard in primary pediatric care. For years, we've been lucky enough to have her expertise and time and caring. Among all the doctors our family has dealt with over the years, she is the best!
This doctor is wonderful- she calls me after hours to check in on my son if there is a concern- she is always kind and understanding. I highly recommend this provider to any parent! She always goes above and beyond normal standards to care for my child and this means the world to me!
we love dr lagnese. we wouldn't want to see anyone else.
Excellent provider. Does not do unnecessary testing or talk down to you. Answers questions thoroughly. Can tell she really loves her job. I have recommended many new parents to her.
Awesome as always.
She is always very sweet and talks to the child about what's going on. She spends time and is never in a hurry. A+ care. :)
When my child needs to go to the doctor's I know all of our needs will be met, listen to very attentively, options will be explained and ofter reexplained in a matter that the child can also understand. I never feel rushed through an appointment. The staff is extremely friendly, knowledgable and I feel our care is excellent. A job, extremely well done, and greatly appreciated.
All good, we were in and out with no problems.
They are very personable and kind.
She is a wonderful doctor.
Visit went very well
Dr Magaret Lagnese is wonderful! We have been seeing her for over 18 yrs with all three of my children and they all love her, she is a great pediatrician.
We have always loved having Dr. Lagnese as our pediatrician. She is thorough, never rushes, and always takes time to explain everything to us. We would never change doctors.
Doctor always answers all questions and actually spends time with patients. Always a good experience.
Dr. Lagnese is an excellent, caring physician and I recommend her to anyone I know who is looking for a pediatrician.
She's the best. Please don't let her retire :)
Dr. Lagnese is very thorough and wonderful with my family.
Very smooth visit. In and out at a timely manner. No complaints.
The staff is always friendly whenever I go there.
My children LOVE coming to their well visit appointments with Dr. Lagnese. They ENJOY how she talks to them and is genuinely interested in their lives, activities, interests and hobbies as well as their health!
Having Dr. Lagnese as our doctor is probably one of the BEST parenting decisions my husband and I made in our daughters' lives. She is such a kind and wonderful doctor! We could not be happier with the care from Dr. Lagnese!!!!
She is very nice and sociable to the parents.
At this time I didn't need to be informed of anything by the doctor. I do feel if needed I would have been completely involved in the doctors diagnosis.
Dr. Lagnese always makes sure she answers any questions that I have. She is so sweet with my daughter and has been since the day we met her at Magee. We feel very fortunate to have had her cross our path shortly after my daughter's birth.
Dr. Lagnese is a wonderful doctor. I feel very fortunate to be able to have my children under her care!
she is great!
Dr. Lagnese has been very helpful and informative. She seems interested in what I had to say and explained everything very clearly.
