Fantastic doctor! We were looking for a second opinion for my father's Parkinson's disease and Dr. LaFaver provided a thorough assessment and mentioned treatment options we hadn't heard about before. She took lots of time to answer all our questions. We also loved the fellow working with her!

I have been going to Dr. LaFaver for 3 years. I strongly recommend her. She has helped me when other doctors have been unable.

My neurosurgeon laughed at what they said and sent me to another neurologist that diagnosed me correctly and gave me the only med that helps. I'm doing much better

I am seeing Dr. LaFaver for torticollis. She has been treating me with Botox which has made a world of a difference for me. She is always kind and treats me like family. I would highly recommend this doctor.

The most uncaring doctor I've ever met. And, as a nurse I've met my fair share. I don't even know how she has patients, she's cold and it's obvious she could care less if you lived or died.
