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.

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.

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%.
