I've had to visit three ENT around Naples. I'm so fortunate that I finally tried Dr. Lavasani. While it was a struggle sometimes to get on her schedule and her offices telephone system is frustrating, she is genuine and clearly interested in helping her patient. I've been misdiagnosed over the past 18 months, but after seeing her, she literally changed my life. We are so lucky to have such a special ENT in our small community. Just wish her office phone system was as good as she is.

After dealing with ongoing vertigo, instead of doing a simple test for benign positional vertigo in her office, I was referred for expensive testing which could have been avoided. On two occasions, I was told her office would contact me to set up tests and therapy, and I received no call back. I had to call the office repeatedly to try to get someone to call me back. Their phone system often just puts you into voice mail. This is the Naples location. I cannot recommend this physician.

She does not spend time with you at all or explains anything or listens well, it seems as if she does not believe the patient of his complaints if the problem is not obvious right away as in my case. Her nasal endoscopy was not thorough it was way too quick to see anything. And if the problem seems to complex she just wants you to go somewhere else even if it still in the area of ENT. I think she is not confident of her skills and does not have much experience especially in the surgical arena.
