Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

So thankful to have found Dr. Lavin. He is very knowledgeable, patient, kind, and understanding with my daughter. He was not quick to hand out a Rx like most doctors. He made sure it was actually something that was needed (and it was) and was quick to recommend genetic testing which helped find the right meds for her. I’m not sure why more doctors don’t do genetic testing. It has saved me, my husband, my sister, and now my daughter a lot of trouble in finding the meds that work with our brain chemistry. I would highly recommend him!

Time spent vs cost does not balance. Not to mention I was 8 minutes late for an appointment and it cost me an additional $75 next time. Then added an additional $25 collection fee and $1.34 interest and never sent my meds to the right pharmacy after repeated attempted to correct. They always ended up in Youngsville North Carolina. I can’t recommend his office for anything.

We have dealt with several different psychiatrists and we adore Dr. Lavin. He is down to earth, easy to talk to and concerned about my teen daughter’s wellbeing. We feel very heard by him which is amazing. And this is the first psychiatrist my daughter responds too.
