My 16 year old has been a type 1 diabetic for 13 years. We were referred to Dr. Lavin, which was the absolute worst experience I have ever encountered with an endocrinologist since my son's diagnosis. Dr. Lavin's office did not download the glucose meter or insulin pump, told me to increase my son's insulin across the board without giving me any amounts, failed to prescribe insulin pump supplies after asking for 1 1/2 months and made countless mistakes. Completely stressful, awful experience.

I really wanted to like this doctor. But the only appointment in which he took his time for me was the very first one. After that it just went downhill. The last time I saw him he walked in and out of my room within 5 minutes. That's not way to treat someone that's sick and has questions. The office staff is nice though. The waiting room is always overcrowded.

Worst experience ever. They lie to me. They told me that my daughter's appointment got cancel, because i asked for a second oppinion at children's hospital, and my insurance confirm to me that they never send a referral for my follow up appointment today with Dr. Lavin. I thought that a doctor should have ethics what a dissapointment. My first appointment he was rushing that's what i told my primary pediatrician and i guess that's what Dr. Lavin or his staff didn't like. Very dissapointed
