Dr. Lavi embodies what a true physician needs to be: Caring+knowledgeable and patient. My whole entire family truly loves this man
in Los Angeles, CA |
World Class! He sat on the floor with my child to keep her calm and was playing with her for over 5 minutes so she does not get scared! I saw him teaching his residents with such a calm manner and patience. He is a genius, kind, caring, loving and passionate doctor. I truly love him.

Words can NOT describe my sense of appreciation for Dr. Lavi. He literally saved my mother's life last week after having a massive heart attack. If it was not for his precise diagnosis and fast action plan, I am not sure what would have happened to my mom. I am a certified ultrasound technician and have worked with many fine doctors, but I have never seen anything like him.

The staff at this office is welcoming and helpful with answering all my questions. Everyone has been friendly and accommodating each time I've come in for an appointment. The students here are knowledgable and considerate. Dr. Lavi is an exceptional doctor who is very intelligent and understanding. I've had different experiences with other primary care physicians in the past, but I will keep coming back to this office because of my pleasant encounters with Dr. Lavi and his great staff.

The most caring, passionate and knowledgeable doctor that I have ever met.
in Culver city ca |
Incredibly filthy office - no one ever uses sanitizer or washes their hands. A assistant who saw me had a cold and kept wiping her nose with her sleeve, hands like a 6 year old. Dr. Is a defensive jerk who falsified my med records to cover their mistakes. Really subclass care. Totally misdiagnosed me almost had dire consequences. Whole office s ridiculous - it's all about making money - they really don't care about you. Wish I could give a -10 stars. Just a big joke.

I?ve been really patient with this office. Don?t go there if you want quality time and service. They are looking for quantity of patients and office visits only. I gave this office 3 tries to but all 3 have been very disappointing. 1st time was when I went for an appointment. They were running over an hour late but didn?t even apologize for it. My appointment was at 10:30 AM and the Dr. didn?t even see me until 11:40AM and then it wasn?t even him that sat down with me but an intern. Dr. Levi s
