Dr. Livermore is an amazing surgeon and a very empathetic human being. I am so grateful. My only caveat has to do with the overheard political leanings of his office manager which I ignored once, then had to hear again upon the next visit. I assume Dr. Livermore does not know that his office manager is spewing such hateful ideas.

Dr. Livermore is a caring physician who listens to your issues, explains his diagnosis and planned treatment, and spends whatever time is needed to do so. Some doctors want you in and out as soon as possible, not Dr. Livermore. I feel very comfortable with Dr. Livermore and will continue to see him whenever I have medical issues. His staff is also the greatest. They are always willing to do whatever is necessary to make your visit pleasant.

About Me

Care Philosophy

I believe that every patient deserves to be fully listened to. I take the time to understand what the patient's perspective is regarding his (her) symptoms before recommending a treatment plan. Surgery should only be undertaken if it is really necessary and very likely to bring about major improvement in a patient's condition.
