His entire staff is amazing! I've been in a lot of doctor's offices over the years and everyone in Dr Lava's is professional, caring and just plain fun to be around. Waiting time is short and he always spends as much time as you need. We're going through a tough time and he has bent over backwards to make sure we have what we need and to offer support. Certainly a rarity.
