    How was your appointment with Dr. Lavu?

    Sep 22, 2022
    Dr Lavu is simply the best! I am having a whipple surgery in the next few weeks and Dr Lavu has been extremely responsive and detailed in what to expect both before and after surgery. I had emailed him some questions and within minutes he called me back to speak in person rather than email. Dr Lavu has helped me to stay positive and I am fortunate to have him in my corner doing the surgery. Just an outstanding doctor.
