Seattle, WA |
I am grateful for Dr Lavy. She spent the time to hear my story, she found my MS that had been misdiagnose for years. The MRI was a no brainer, their it was plain as day. She educates me, steps me though the door of taking care of myself, gives me options , truthful and is truly a caring Doctor. Knows her profession.

Dr. Lavy and her staff has went above and beyond with the care of my husbands neurology needs... Very intelligent. I honestly can not praise her and her staff enough. She is a very caring doctor and been my husbands neurologist for over 5 years. All I can say is amazing. She will explain everything and if it something you do not quite understand she will go over it with you. It is not a short in and out visit as she is very detailed and Nurse Betty is right there when my husband calls her.

Dr Lavy told me I did not have MS although the doctor she trained under said I did. My biggest issue is that both times I've called the nurse about medication issues, I've had to call repeatedly and still wait for 1 1/2 to two weeks for an answer. Meanwhile, I'm out of pills. Obviously Dr Lavy does not communicate any better with her staff than she does with some of her patients, like myself. It's very disheartening.

Dr Lavy loves being a neurologist. That carries across to her patients. She listens and is very thorough. She took the lead in determining what my illness was and now is helping me manage it. I open up to her more than any other doctor. I could not do better. If you need a neurologist you could not do better. She and her staff are great!

Dr. Lavy explains why symptoms and conditions are happening in a way that is easily understood. I always learn so much about everything! when she spends time with me. She records all of which we speak during the appointment and then copies it for me to take with me. A huge relief from trying to remember what was said during the appointment. She is very thorough and a delightful person.

Dr Lavy has been a true blessing to myself and my family!!
in Coeur D Alene, ID |
Dr. Lavy is an intelligent woman and a poor listener/communicator who does not adjust to the pt needs. I saw her for rls/cognitive issues including memory. She told me she had “no non pharmaceutical options” which i found very limiting. During a phone conversation she rudely refused to repeat some important information. Her nurse, Betty, is under educated, condescending and virtually hung up on me. Her note taking assistant fell asleep. She was unaware of a basic lab test I required.

i had a horrible experience with dr. lavy. she is VERY unprofessional, mean, short with you,and a lair. she called me a fake and said i did not have M.S. which she confirmed i did at the start. she is very mixed up about what she tells her patients. she is a quack and should be barred from practicing medicine. new patients STAY CLEAR OF HER! thank you LEAH BEAL.
