First let me say that as soon as I entered the department I was greeted very warmly. Then after just a few minutes I was in front of Dr. Lavine, I didn’t have to wait at all like I’ve had to do at all other doctors office. He was kind, courteous, respectful and answered all of my questions and put me at ease about my treatment options. I have been a patient of his now for over 5yrs and would never consider seeing anyone but him. I recommend him 100%!

Dr. Lavine was absolutely incredible. He was kind and compassionate, very thorough, and a very down to earth man. His staff, especially Yvette, were also wonderful to meet and very welcoming. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for answers and needs a doctor and staff who treats you like family.
