Dr Lively is the most current doctor I’ve ever known. He has cared for me for many years. What he teaches me about my health is based on the latest research. He is kind, he really cares about talking to me, as he addresses whatever health issue or medications that are pertinent to me. Totally trust him, his judgment, his professional skills, and am so thankful for a doctor like him. Today, it’s rare to find a caring person. He is a blessing and will be a blessing to everyone.

I seen Dr. Lovely for my pregnancy. He was very patient, involved, concerned, well educated, and humble. Always thorough with each visit. He never dismissed any of my concerns, and recognized his own with my prenatal care as well. His staff was focused, professional, and super nice. In delivery, he made sure to involve my husband in the delivery of our child. He is an amazing doctor. Post baby, he has kept up with my health, hormones, weight loss, etc. I have had great progress under his care.

Dr. Lively is one of the best physician experiences I have had the opportunity to have. From initial appointment (whole body health) to first obstetrical appointment, his approach, compassion, bedside manner, counseling, and his "patient involved" approach to treatment hasn't changed. He's passionate about his mission, and he loves the Lord. I know that my baby & I, are being cared for by someone who is Christ led & morally competent. Thank you Dr. Lively! You are the absolute best!

This is the longest wait at any doctors office I have ever experienced, and then he acts like he is in a big hurry. I don't know why, since there weren't that many people there. There are now men everywhere in there getting hormone treatment. He almost never gives me a breast exam.
