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: June 2018

*Dr. Lavanture is the best! I wish I would have been seen him BEFORE *name removed*
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.
Guthrie Patient: May 2018
I am very disappointed that my provider will no longer be seeing patients at the big flats office. I is much more convienient than driving to Sayre
