Summary: Outstanding Medical Care and Treatment.
July 17th, 2013
Doctor Lavenburg has been my Ophthalmologist for nearly two decades and in that period has always been a caring, considerate, truthful and totally outstanding physician in every possible way. When I have a question he "listens" and will not allow me to go unanswered to any degree. His practice is based on "Caring For His Patients"... period.
Doctor Lavenburg surrounds himself with a staff of caring and highly proficient human beings. Within the passed several months He performed catarct surgery on both my eyes, and though I was naturally a bit hesitant initially, not one thing went any differently than he had set my expectations toward. He gave at my age of 73 the sight I had when I was in my twenties. He and his staff are exceptional and I would recommend them to anyone wanting good eye health. Thank you Douglas Lavenburg from the bottom of my heart.
