Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lively "My patient encounter is a dialogue, not a monolog. I like to discuss the medical issues, then come together on the options in diagnosis and treatment. Our focus is women's health care. Each year we review your general health history, including: allergies, medications, body system review, medical and surgical history, vaccinations, risk factors for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancers."

Dr. Lively was the on call doctor when I got induced with my first child. He had great bedside service and did an excellent job with my emergency caesarean.

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!

After making you fill out forms asking questions, he didnt address any of my concerns. Very impersonal, seemed in a rush.
Dr. Lively appreciates hearing all feedback regarding the care he provides to patients. It is disheartening to learn that you felt that your personal experience in our clinic was not up to your expectations. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and Dr Lively as well as the whole clinic will do our best to improve the care that we provide.

Dr. Was great
in Odessa, TX |
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.
We apologize for your wait. Our clinic has been going through a transition to specialize in Hormonal Balance (which does include men). Dr. Lively has a true passion to educate everyone on the importance of having balanced hormones and he feels that it is the key to feeling healthy and happy.
