Due to COVID 19 all my appointments prior to surgery were done via video chat. He listened to my concerns and explained everything thoroughly. I ended up needed a 2 level ACDF which resolved the numbness I was feeling in both my arms.

Fabulous and caring. He put a metal plate in my neck C-3 - C-7. The operation was successful and I have no fear of paralyzation anymore. Highly recommended!

I have had two extensive spinal surgeries with Dr. Lavelle. I would not go to anyone else. He did such a good job and I can say that he has given me back my life without pain. He is very personable and caring and he took the time to answer all of my questions as well as any that my family members had. I would definitely recommend him.

Did not show any concern for my health issue. Left in pain with no help or advise. Told me he would do a surgery if I wanted ....and that it was no big deal. Having spine surgery is a big deal. It can relieve pain and help people live a better life. I am grateful for the Surgeon that did help me. Some Doctors do care.
