Dr. Lively's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lively "Dr. Lively has been practicing in Odessa since 1992. He loves getting to know his patients and learning about their lives. He is now in the unique time of his practice where he is caring for and treating the very babies he delivered so many years ago. "It is always very exciting to see one of the babies I delivered all grown up, and then having the honor to treat them and deliver their baby". Dr. Lively has been married to Melanie for 27 years, and they have 3 college kids. He enjoys traveling with his family, wake boarding, mountain biking, snow skiing and snow boarding."

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."
