Guthrie Patient: May 2018
*Dr. Lavanture is a terrific, caring doctor. He made me feel comfortable & unrushed from the start, which gave me confidence that he knew what my problem was, and after surgery, what the best solution would be.

Dr. Lavanture is excellent at explaining & showing what has to be done to help the pain & correct the deformity in my hand.
Guthrie Patient: January 2018
Dr. LaVanture was caring,and I felt very confident that he knew what my problem is and will be very capable of taking care of it.
Guthrie Patient: December 2017
Only thing I would have liked was follow up phone call after surgery from clinic. Felt once surgery was over no one was concerned. I am used to a check in call 24-48 hrs.

I wish i had seen Dr. LaVanture to begin with!
