The doctor said there was no reason to do an MRI on the back right now. I'm just concerned about how much pain he is in and why not an MRI just to make sure it's not serious. He just prescribed PT for 6-8 weeks before an MRI. My son has problems walking sometime, but other times he is able to run in soccer.

office couldn't read our files we brought in. the doctor really didn't care if he saw the pictures to see if her condition worsend until I asked if he wanted me to get a new file sent over. he asked for hard copies. by that point I was put off that he didn't even want to take a set of X-rays to see progression. I understand his explanation of the "likelihood" but I'm also a person that believes people are different and should be treated that way. my daughter's pain from her condition has gotten worse. he didn't want to look into it to see why.

It's so good to see that there are still drs. out there that genuinely care for the patient.
Patient | January 24, 2018

Absolutely amazing, goes above and beyond. Even discussed teaching us to do some things that were having to be done weekly in office due to use living 2.5 hours away.

He was thorough on his evaluation and didn't only rely on x-ray.

Our provider was very nice, told us all the information we needed, and got us in-and-out quickly.
Patient | September 21, 2017

Remembered our conversation we had over every visit. Nice to know he is always listening. Very nice. Would highly recommend.
Patient | August 28, 2017

Arrogant, noncaring, unprofessional, demeaning. Never again will my child see him.
Patient | July 18, 2017

Dr. Lovejoy is the best he does not give up till he finds out what the problem is he is great with children.
Patient | June 6, 2017

Dr. Lovejoy is excellent!
Patient | May 18, 2017

He did not order any tests or xrays and did not ask him to walk or anything. He spent little time examining him considering he didn't have any previous records or x-rays from other providers to look at.
Patient | April 13, 2017

He is simply the best.
