Patient Comments (4)
in Dawson Springs, Ky |
I have been a patient of Dr. Lavin's since 2002. Without this man, I would be completely blind. He took me in from another hospital and saved my vision. He to me is an angel on earth! He knows his stuff and is all about making sure things are like they are supposed to be. He knows who you are and I don't feel like a number to him.
He is incredibly knowledgeable, has a kind personality, and really listens to his patients. I was at my wits end looking all over my local area for a neurologist to help my headaches. I had been to several and none really did much to help me. Then a close friend of mine who was also a doctor at Vanderbilt, sent me to Dr. Lavin. He made such a big difference in my quality of life. I still have migraines, but they are controlled and far fewer.

He was my doctor for 10 years the only reason we parted ways was due to Vanderbilt no longer accepting my insurance. He was always very caring and compassionate. He also had a wonderful way of explaining everything. I would definitely recommend him.
