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.
Patient | August 8, 2017

Dr. called on 2 occasions for information.

My experience with Dr. Lavin was much better than my experience with the Dr. I saw in April.
Patient | July 18, 2017

Dr. Lavin went out of his way to help me with my vision crisis a few years back. He was patient and reassuring. He made sure I received top notch care.

Patient | March 16, 2017

Dr. Lavin took SO much time to help and test me! While no resolution for my problem was made that day - he did everything he could!
Patient | February 28, 2017

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.
Patient | November 5, 2016

Always excellent and concerned wise decision maker.
