Dr. Blue took his time, was thorough reviewing my health records, and accurately determined where the cortisone shot was needed.

Review for Dr. Levine

I’ve been seeing Dr. Lavalle for a few years and he genuinely cares about his patients. He listen and verbally explains the steps he will take during an exam. If you need any procedures he explains the reasoning behind his professional advice and always recaps visit and next steps.

Review for Dr. Lavallee Jr

I had my physical last month and it went great! Dr. Deutsch always listens and answers all my questions. I’ve been going to Dr. Deutsch since the age of 18 and I will really miss him when he retires.
