I am 68 years old and in my life I have seen a lot of doctors. Recently I got Dr. Lavi as my family doctor. My hat off to him for being very effective and professional in attending to my situations.. First thing that impressed me was that he returned my calls himself and gave me follow up calls personally, The second thing that impressed me was that he is on top of all my health problems so when I forget to ask him, he reminds me about issues and how to handle them with diet or exercise.

I am very greatful to finally find Dr. Dariush Lavi as my primary doctor after I moved to OC. He patiently listens to all of your concerns, he goes above and beyond to be sure your are directed to the right specialist when there is a need. He personally spoke to the specialist to get me a quick appointment. He has even contacted me while he was out on vacation to follow up on my urgent case. This is a type of care we really need from a primary doctror . Office staffs are super friendly too

It's been at least 3 years since Dr. Dariush S. Lavi's been my primary care physician. He's no doubt one of the most knowledgeable and conscientious MDs in his field. More important than all credentials however, is his sincere interest in helping his patients and natural ability to diagnose and provide for prognostic measures to counter potential future ailments, etc. I'm very happy with Dr. Lavi and highly recommend him.

knowledge, insight, patience, time to listen deeply and friendly what the patient/client has to say and/or complaint, warm atmosphere and so friendly family health business. Dr. Lavi, first of all, is just a friend and a true human being, then a practitioner... Al Shamlou alshamlou@yahoo.com

I have been Dr. Lavi's patient for many year, so as my parents, my sisters, my uncles and aunts and so many of my friends and specially my son. I can not begin how to tell you that how excellent he is. He is so experienced, he knows your problem even before he start examining you. He is a life saver. I will never ever change my doctor unless my insurance changes which will be very unfortunate. Love the staff, so nice and kind and courteous. I recommend him to everyone. He is an excellent Doctor

He has excellent instinct and always follows up with all my tests and keeps me informed. He spends the time to address all my concerns.

Very pleasant. Persistent in his diagnostic efforts. He simply does not give up until he gets to the problem. He spends time and listens to patient's concerns and explains the conditions in ways that the patient understands.
