"[...] Dr Lavelle and her medical assistants [...] were very kind, empathic, caring and concerned about me. [...] helped reassure me and calm me prior to appt and made sure I had everything I needed after the appt. Dr Lavelle was wonderful. She listened and heard me/ my concerns and questions. Was very gentle with any physical interactions. Explained and discussed issues, suggestions, and offered treatment options right away. After a year of suffering she was able to confirm what I was already doing was good and offered more treatment plan options, Explained the options and answered questions. She made me feel heard. I have already recommended her to others. I am confident that regards of her outcome of the initial treatments, if those work, she will try to find others and not let me feel like there is no solutions or next steps or just refer me to someone else just to get rid of me. I wish all doctors would show the empathy and understanding she does."
