Dr. Lavu worked with me on my pancreatic issue and he was absolutley the best doctor I have ever had. He is attentive to what is going on with his patients, his concern for his patients is excellent. I had a few issues after pancreatic surgery but Dr. Lavu and his team addressed them immediately. I can't say enough about how good he is along with his team, office staff and all who work with him. He is a lifesaver.
