I'm a Physical Therapist. So, when I had a wicked ankle fracture, I called my peers to see who was the best Ortho surgeon--Dr. Laverty! Awesome surgical skills, great follow up appointments, second surgery to remove metal, great staff (PAs, nurses, X-ray tech, front office--all A++). Glad to be 6 months post fracture and on the road to my best, functional potential. Thanks, Dr. Laverty and staff!!

Made me feel at ease during an emergency femur fracture and hip replacement revision surgery. Great job by his team. Can’t say enough good about him, Dell Seton, the staff and the trauma team.

I've known Dr laverty since 2012, when I was in a severe accident. ever since then I believe he saved my leg. I saw him last week due to a fracture in my right arm. Chris, His Intern & Dr Laverty, were ALL very good at listeing & each had a very good bedside manor.

Dr. Laverty is extremely efficient and knowledgeable. He’s to the point and explains your situation clearly. His office staff is seriously the best I’ve ever seen. X-rays are done almost immediately and the staff is very kind. Checking out is quite efficient and the front desk is especially cordial.

I'm a little disappointed I go for my post-op appointment and I don't even get to speak with the the surgeon even though I asked you. and then I ask for copies of my x-rays because they weren't going to take any X-rays and all they would let me do is take a phone photo of the X-ray from the hospital saying that it was their property and they could not print it. The nurse could not even tell me exactly how many screws were in my hand. She kept pulling up old x-rays.

After an injury, Dr. Laverty saw me same day I called. Scheduled surgery next day. Dr. Laverty did an excellent job of explaining the process. Office was efficient with scheduling follow up. Wait time in office has been very short, in fact have been in exam room before actual appointment time each time. Am healing quickly thanks to their care.

I never went to school and learned the fancy names for bones, etc. But I thank the heavens that Dr. Laverty did, and so much more. If it were not for him gathering up all that knowledge and putting in all the hard work to become a super outstanding surgeon, my arm would never of worked right again. Dr. Laverty knows bones! I should also tell you he genuinely cared about me. Always listened and replied in a down to earth, honest way. Him and his entire team have been a huge blessing on my life.

Dr. Laverty did an extraordinarily great job repairing my broken leg. I fully recovered from the surgery involving putting in a plate and screws and was walking in seven weeks. I had so little pain that I didn’t take any narcotics. The incision is so small that it’s hardly noticeable. I can’t say enough good things about the quality of care he provides!
