I love Dr Lavery, he is so knowledgeable and has helped me so much....

Dr. Lavery is a wonderful individual. He really seems to care about his patients and their well-being. He is patient, professional and kind. During appointments he focuses on me - he spends asking questions and understanding the patient with the disease - not just the disease. His support team are very accommodating and reassuring too! I like that he does not try to push you into a medication but wants to inform you and then have you research it for the best decision for the patient.

Dr. Lavery is wonderful! I was about to give up all doctors when my GP recommended him. I've been going to him for about 3 years now. My quality of life is so much better than before. Thank you Dr. Lavery!

I have already recommended and urged a few people to head Dr. Lavery's way! In less than a month, I have had 3 blood draws for testing, 15+ xrays, and a lumbar MRI. In addition, they already communicated in getting me set up with a pain management doctor and physical therapy. Dr. Lavery is very pragmatic and thorough, and all of his assistants are genuine, kind, and intelligent. Scheduling an actual "office appointment" is difficult, but they do not hesitate to communicate and direct via phone

I have seen Dr. Lavery for the past four years. He is an excellent, thorough, caring doctor. Staff is good too.

Prior to moving to TX, I was on 6-7 different meds a day and had no specific diagnosis. I came to Dr. Lavery, and he ran several blood tests on me and was able to give me a definite diagnosis. I love the fact that he is not scared to run tests to get to the bottom of my illness. His staff is wonderful, and addresses any and all concerns. I love the fact that his appointments run on time.

I think he is very intelligent and great at diagnosing. He cares about his patients and wants to do want ever he can to help you feel better. He wants to know how you are doing. He remembers little things about you, so you know you aren't just another patient, and asks questions. He gives notes to patients about what you have discussed during the appointment. Great help!! No other doctor does this. He always asks , what can I do for you, or something similar. He really cares. Love him!!

Dr. Lavery is a brilliant Doctor. He cares about his patients, he's very got an incredible memory, knows more about all medical issues than anyone I've ever met. It is worth the wait it takes to get in to see him. He has so many office procedures you won't find any where else. You get notes about your visit, blood work letter sent before visit, you drop by office and get blood drawn, written results in the mail, and then you have the results so you can ask ?'s when you have your appointment.
