Dr. Lavi is a kind and concerned medical professional that attends to the best interest of his patient. During my visit he was very attentive and listened to every word and addressed my concerns. I totally feel he is dedicated to my improved health. After stopping to pick up my prescription I called the office as the price was exceedingly expensive. He called me at 7:00 pm when his office closed at 5:00 pm to let me know he had called in another prescription for me. I'm most thankful that a friend shared her experience encouraging me to make an appointment. His staff is just as kind and considerate.

He is the best! BONUS: he is extremely handsome and charming!

Dr. Lavi changed my life, he is the most genuine and outgoing doctor i’ve had! The relationship I built with this man during my first visit is really fun, which he took two hours to make sure he understood and took care of all my worries! He goes the extra mile to make sure you feel good and happy and understand the process you are going to take. The nurses and staff are always friendly and amazing. I love this place and highly recommend!

Dr Lavi is very unprofessional. He talks bad about allergists, uses profanity, and then charges exuberant fees, with no warning. Will never go there again.

Dr. Lavi is one of the best doctors my asthmatic son has been a patient of. He takes the time to listen and understand the issues without pushing unnecessary drugs. Dr. Lavi is extremely kind, funny and has an excellent bed side manor. Highly recommend him and his staff!

Dr. Lavi & his wonderful staff have taken excellent care of my sons for about seven years now. One has environmental and pet allergies, the other has the same plus,severe nut allergy and mild asthma. When we met Dr. Lavi my younger son's nasal passages were nearly closed and he could not go outside without his eyes swelling shut. Now both boys can go outside and be around animals and breathe comfortably. Also my son with nut allergies is properly looked after and kept safe. None better!
