Patient Comments (5)
Antioch, CA |
In my opinion, after working with him in the OR, his ego far outweighs his skill. After working in the industry for about 10 years, he is the least skilled surgeon I have seen.
in Arnold, CA |
He screwed up a carpal tunnel surgery on me. I had to have a second surgeon finish the job. He also did not want me to get off my blood thinning medication before the surgery. My anticoagulation specialists at VA were incensed, when they heard that.
in Valley Springs, CA |
With Dr Lovett you get deep and trustworthy expertise, state of the art medical technoloy, genuine empathy and truly likable personality. With Lovett you'll love it.

This is 3 years late, but I ran across his card and decided it was my job to post this review. Dr. Lovett is highly intelligent and used it to listen and HEAR what I said. He made choices and asked me my opinion before he implemented them. Choices like surgery or injection for pain? Go home after surgery or go to a rehab center? The surgery went seamlessly. The rehab was not an ideal one, but my progress at recovery was spectacular. I would not hesitate to choose him for another surgery. Thanks!

Dr Lovette has my vote for Dr of the year! I went to see him with knee pain, he told me what he would do, and did it. Very pleasant experience. I recommend him 100%.
