Dr. Leonel A Lacayo has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Horrible Service for a horrible physician

This physician is blatently irresponsible in his care with his patients. Due to lack of documentation, he is unaware of the details of the patient. There was an instance in which I was taking a large dose of steroids and he could not remember as well as it was not documented. To add, his office staff is the most rude staff I've ever come across. There is complete lack of concern or care for the patients. I truly feel that this physician should not be in the business of taking care of people!!

Great caring

I saw Dr. Lacayo for an issue and refered my husband who has suffered from UC for many years. Since my husband has had this condition for so long and we have seen many specialists and we were totally expecting for him to say take this, eat better, call me if you have more problems, see you in a year. But he didn't. He took his time, listened to my husbands complaints and continues to work with him. I would recommend Dr Lacayo to anyone and everyone. He is truly kind and has an excellent bedside manner.
