Charleston, WV |
Office staff very helpful and went above and beyond when I ran into an insurance mixup. They made sure my paperwork was right before my appointment. Clean waiting room and did not have a long wait time.
Wonderful and friendly staff, always very pleasant and accommodating......Dr. Lavender and his PA's are absolutely wonderful and always return calls to answer any questions or help with problems....I have had a difficult fracture and they have done everything possible before deciding on surgery....Trust him completely and know I'm getting the best care possible...Definitely recommend!!

in Ripley, WV |
Cleanist doctor's office that I have ever been in! Office staff were all very friendly and professional. No wait time. I felt good about the quality of care givento my daughter. Dr. Lavender worked my daughter right into his schedule as a new patient, after an injury to her hand at school. After thoroughly assessing her, He referred her to a hand specialist. Highly recommend this doctor!
Elkview, WV |
Hard to get an appointment that is convenient. If asked for the latest appt. I am some how always given an 8am appt. because they are always completely booked Yet there is never more than 3-4 people in the waiting room while there. The doctor is friendly, however the staff needs approved. They never seem to know who I am when I call and always put on hold for over five minutes.
