26/07/12 4 5 1 1 Was in to see Dr. Lavi and he never let us talk. He had an opinion on what was wrong before even talking to my son (behavioual and parents). He has an unsolved Immunodeficiency(based on blood work) and Dr. Lavi expressed we exhausted all tests available in 2012. I wished the visit would have went better...for my sons best interest. No pleased and so very worried for my son.  Respond

30/01/12 1 4 5 5 Excellent Doctor! He is very knowledgable and kind. He didn't rush us through at all, in fact he was very patient with all of my questions. I highly recommend him. His receptionist can be kind but is mostly very, very rude. She doesn't return phone calls (Two calls over two weeks and she said that she didn't have time to call me back!) She seems to have superiority complex.  Respond

16/04/10 2 3 5 5 Dr. Lavi has been a breathe of fresh air, after having dealt with a couple of less than stellar allergists. Well worth the LONG drive to go see him, over an hour one way. He took his time with my son, was firm, but not mean, and had us all leave feeling very positive about him, even though the results were no different than what we already knew.  Respond

29/03/10 5 5 5 5 Just wanted to say that I have 2 children with Dr. Lavi. He has taken tremendous care of them. After 2 other allergists failed to diagnose and control the problems, Dr. Lavi was a heaven sent. My son thinks the world of him and cannot see himself going to anyone else. He is efficient with his time but does not make you feel rushed. He always greets you with a smile and a friendly voice. He explains things to me and my children in an easy way to understand. All of his suggestions have worked and my son has already lost 3 big allergies (eggs, fish and shelfish). He's truly a gem and we are lucky to have him. Thanks Dr. Lavi :-)  See Responses

03/12/09 1 3 4 4 Dr Lavi is amazing but his receptionist is a terror - I called in about a question on my meds once I found out I was pregnant for the first time. I was nervous about the amount of meds I was on but also scared to go off them - she was rude and dismissive - comepletly unacceptable!! Will never go back now.  Respond

30/11/09 4 5 5 5 Dr. Lavi diagnosed my 16-month old's allergies. He was very friendly and took the time to answer all of our questions. We didn't have to wait long for our appointment which is always a bonus when you've got young children.  Respond

29/10/09 5 5 5 5 Dr.Lavi is awesome, he has been seeing my son since he was a year, my son is allergic to eggs,milk,nuts. He is so great. He was the second specialist,we saw, because of his approach my son's asthma improved 100%. The first doctor just wanted to give him prendisone all the time,this medication can have terrible consquences for young children. Also, last year when i needed his okay for my son to have tubes in his ears, he helped me from that my son only had a few ear infections since birth but the doctor said he needed that, Dr. Lavi adviced me to wait which I did, clearly my child did not need tubes. I have recommended him to others who get their referrals he is awesome!!  Respond

16/09/09 5 5 5 5 My son has seen Dr. Lavi since he was a newborn and developed asthma after a cold. He has been fantastic in helping control the asthma and referred him for allergy testing to rule out food allergies. He is always pleasant, takes his time and makes kids feel at ease. His receptionist is also very helpful and they almost never keep patients waiting longer than 15-20 minutes which is rare these days.  Respond

20/03/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Sassoon was our second opinion for our daughters asthma and was key in helping us get her symptoms under control. He also performed the allergy tests that we requested with another doctor (and were denied) to find out she had allergies that were interfering with her asthma control. He has been informative, receptive and accomodating to us without being alarming. It has been almost a year since our daughter was last hospitalized.  Respond

22/11/06 3 2 3 Gentle with children. A generally competent allergist. In my opinion he can be dismissive of symptoms. Mine turned out to be very serious symptoms another doctor finally diagnosed. As with any doctor everyone's experiences are different.  Respond
