Dr. Joel M Lattin has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

Vicious and loathingly condesending

I am a Senior with stage four cancer in pain and he verbally assaulted me, because I took pain pills, was constipated and nearly in tears from the pain, but said YES the day before when I asked should I take one. I did call medicare, and sent proof of his whiny, little, idea of care, as they shouldnt pay for Drs that love to abuse and sent a copy to Alexian bros

I think he is a great doctor, he listens well and answered all my questions. Of course he did not know exactly the cause of my issue without further lab tests.. He is very patient and not judgemental at all.

Had no choice but to see him at the hospital during his rounds. He completely didn't care what I had to say, didn't care about my previous diagnosis, and said I had to see someone else because I didn't have my records in front of him. Unprofessional!

Stay away from this doc

Had a consult with him. Would rather have had it from the receptionist. He seems to only be concerned about himself. Walked out of office aggravated. Now looking for another doctor.
