Metairie, LA |
Dr.Lavin Very nice man.He did amazing surgery GBPin years past .But my revision has been a nightmare. But he did something to my asophogus that I no longer have a normal life. I also developed horrendous motility problems. Ask questions before surgery I trusted him and now I am paying with my health. He might be good for you but he was not for me.
