Guthrie Patient: October 2018
As stated before when same questions were asked I feel Dr. Lavanture is a true asset to Guthrie Clinic. He exceeded my expectations of the care I would receive.
Guthrie Patient: September 2018
fine physician
Guthrie Patient: August 2018
This was my first visit to this provider. A proceedure will will be done so for now the answers to the questions are about first impression and feelings of being heard. I had previously seen a different surgeon who was not listening to me and I now have issues with the work that he originally did and therefore had to get a second opinion. So far I really like what I am hearing from Dr Lavanture.
Guthrie Patient: August 2018
Good experience.
