Dr. Lavi is the BEST. He has been treating my husband, a retired Los Angeles fire fighter, for the past year. My husband was referred to Dr. Lavi by another coworker who swears by him. He is apparently the go to doctor for the department. My husband suffered a severe injuries when he fell off a 12 foot ladder. He was taken to the emergency room and then transferred to Dr. Lavi's care. He has subsequently undergone 2 surgeries for his right shoulder and back. He is doing better than expected and his overall movement and quality of life is better than before. My husband saw 2 other independent doctors per the insurance company, both of whom had very high regard for Dr. Lavi's skills and expertise. Every other patients that I have spoken to when accompanying my husband to office visits has the same opinion. As another person said "he truly is the american idol of doctors".

I have been see in Dr. Lavi for 6 years now. I work for the county of LA and have had numerous spine and orthopedic injuries that Dr. Lavi has treated over the years. I have had nothing but praise for Dr. Lavi and his group. He is very well known and respected among civil servants and peace officers, and his waiting area is usually filled with very happy patients that are grateful for the care he has given them. I have personally referred a few of my coworkers to Dr. Lavi, and all speak very highly of his capabilities. Post below seems a little odd, and only makes one wonder about its motive. Regardless, I highly recommend Dr. Lavi and have nothing but praise for his staff. Gina Lopez LAC.

It is so obvious that all of Doctor Lavi's ratings were made by the same individual employee who wants to keep his job. I have been seeing Dr Lavi for 2 years. He is not accurately described here. Check Upcoming yelp rating. I will accurately rate Dr. Lavi there.

I had a major neck reconstruction with Dr. Lavi 4 weeks ago. I have not felt this good in years. I had severe pain and weakness in my arms and legs, not to mention bowel & bladder incontinence. I had great difficulty walking as my balance was severely compromised. I had seen several doctors and surgeon that wanted to operate on my neck from the front and the back. I was fortunate enough that one of the neurosurgeons I had seen, recommended to Dr. Lavi. From the very first day I saw Dr. Lavi, I knew there was hope. I had the opportunity to speak to several patients of his that had undergone this kind of surgery, all with glorious praise of Dr. Lavi and the incredible results he achieves. His staff was more than professional in accommodating me, and Dr. Lavi gave me all the options available to me. He went over the severe complications with me enough times that I knew exactly what I was getting myself into. The day of my surgery, Dr. Lavi held my hand until I was put to sleep by the anesthesiologist. When I woke up, I could immediately feel the strength in my arms and legs. I could not wait to get up and walk the following day. It has been almost 4 weeks since my surgery and I can say that I am almost 100%. Dr. Lavi has given me my life back as I have not felt this good in years. I would recommend Dr. without reservation. His professionalism and expertise in this field is second to none. I am eternally grateful to Dr. Lavi and his staff for all they have done for me.

Dr. Lavi is a caring, compassionate, professional, gifted surgeon! My injuries to my cervical spine were such that surgery was the only option. I am a very active person, I teach and absolutely love what I do, I trail ride with my family and own five horses. I also show collies with my husband. My fear was that I would not be able to do any of the things I loved. When I went to see Dr. Lavi, he answered all my questions, was very straight-forward, offered to have me get a second opinion, talk to former patients, etc. I trusted Dr. Pospisil when he referred me to Dr. Lavi. I was positive I was in the best surgical hands possible. When I woke up, most of my pain was gone. I did the exercises at home and three months later,I began PT. In seven weeks, I was able to return to teaching. I have full range of motion! You will be in great hands if you get referred to Dr.Lavi, he is the best at what he does! I am showing my collies and soon will be trail riding again. Thank you, Dr. Lavi!

As with any surgery I had a ton of questions. Dr Lavi patiently answered each one. I recently had neck surgery and couldn't believe how well I felt just hours after the surgery. Everyone from his office staff to the hospital and nursing staff were professional and seemed to really care about my needs and making sure I was comfortable. Its been two weeks since my surgery and I couldn't be happier with the results. I won't write that you should definitely use him but I would say that I highly recommend at least speaking with Dr Lavi. His knowledge and experience will put you at ease and make your decision easy.

Dr Lavi performed a 3 level cervical ACDF on January 18th. I had previous cervical surgery by another doctor that left me with pain radiating down my neck and shoulders. I had difficulty walking due to the pain and had to rest often and I was apprehensive of additional surgery. My condition was far worse than expected. Dr Lavi worked a miracle and had to break my neck in 3 places and remove osteophytes. My spine had started to fuse itself together. It’s been less than 3 weeks since surgery and I feel great. I had very little pain after surgery and even less at home. Dr Lavi improved the curvature of my neck and I may actually be a bit taller now. At this stage of recovery I can tell that my range of motion has improved. I’m no longer skeptical of glowing reviews for Dr. Lavi as I now know firsthand of his competence and compassion. He’ll treat you and your family well. You will be fortunate to have him as your surgeon. Thank you Dr. Lavi for giving me my life back!

Dr. Lavi performed Lower back surgery on me, April 20th. Prior to surgery Dr.Lavi explained everything in detail, in a language I understood. I was outfitted with all my post surgery re-hab equiptment at home prior to going to the hospital. The morning of the surgery the Dr. explained everything I would be feeling and experiencing in the days following surgery. I was up wad walking w/in 24 hrs post surgery. Dr.Lavi Reeks confidence and is very re-assuring. I feel I was blessed to have had Dr.Simon Lavi as my Spinal surgeon. I recently retired from the LACo Fire Dept. I retire with 33 yrs in the Fire Service and am looking foreword to pain free post service years. I would recomend Dr. Lavi to any one with Back / Spine issues. Sincerely Lane Weber.
