Biography & Education


For Dr. Lacayanga, motherhood lends a sense of empathy to her medical practice. “As a mother, I feel I’m better able to listen and understand the questions a parent has about the development of their child or the stress they feel when their child is ill” she says.

A board-certified pediatrician, Dr. Lacayanga earned her medical degree at the University of Santo Tomas in the Philippines followed by an additional two years of coursework at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. She then completed her residency at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago, and is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Dr. Lacayanga was born in the Philippines and speaks fluent Filipino and conversational Spanish. Outside of her medical practice, she enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, as well as traveling and cooking.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

In general, I felt like my questions were dismissed.

Dr. Lacayanga entered our room 3 times by accident - the medical assistant kept coming in to tell her she went back to the wrong room. She seemed totally confused - not only about my son's care but about literally everything. Every question I asked, she pointed to the growth chart [...]. It was a level of incompetence I heave never seen from a doctor. [...] We have already made arrangements to switch to a different clinic.
