He always takes time to go over my medication one by one. He goes over the plan of care to see what I feel is working and what I feel is not before making any adjustments. I would highly recommend him to others.

The doctor is set in his ways and have done practice long enough.
Patient | November 2, 2017

It doesn't matter how many patients he has or how behind they might be Dr. Lavin never makes his patients feel as if he is in a "hurry" with them. He gives them his undivided attention!
Patient | September 18, 2017

I would/have recommended Dr. Lavin to other patients. I just wish I had been able to get in to see him sooner when my condition was affecting my functional tasks and causing greater concern over prognosis re: driving or returning to work. Would also have given my PT better direction re: my stroke rehab.
