I LOVE Dr. Lavin!
Patient | January 19, 2017

No real problems with provider other than his demeanor. Seemed annoyed when I tried to give more information regarding my condition. On a side note, I feel EHR make appointment times feel impersonal and cause providers to focus on the screen and not on the patient. as a provider myself, sometimes body language is essential in diagnosis.

I have seen in a phycian. Very caring and companionate with his patients. Takes time to explain things. I never feel rushed or like he is hurrying me though.

I was extremely appreciative of Dr. Lavin for the time he spent listening to me and trying to understand my problem. He gave me HOPE that I have some options for pain relief, which I did not have before. I cried for hours after my last specialist told me that there wasn't anything that could be done for my pain. Dr. Lavin gave me options for care, which made me hopeful for a productive quality of life.

#8. Dr. Lavin was rude and belittling to me from the very beginning.
