About Dr. Davis

Philosophy of care

There is no clinical problem too big or too small. I am happy doing a total cranial vault reconstruction or removing an embedded earring backing. It's important to keep in mind that something that may be easy for a physician to treat is still an anxiety-producing problem for a patient and his or her family. Being mindful of a family’s needs and reducing their anxiety is a very important part of the care I provide. I think most parents of pediatric patients just want to know that their child is going to be okay.

Why I entered medicine

I entered medicine because, as a young person, I loved anatomy and physiology and wanted to contribute to society by helping people return to health as a doctor. It's an easy thing to forget about when we get caught up in – or even lost in – the complexities of health care. I like working with medical students and residents because they always remind me of how cool and important the work that I do is.

Community involvement

Over the years I have participated in multiple overseas medical volunteer trips. Two trips to Peru with the Peruvian American Medical Society, one trip to Lusaka, Zambia with the Pain Free Foundation, and one trip to Peru and one trip to the Ivory Coast with the Global Smile Foundation. On these trips, I have done cleft lip and palate work, burn reconstruction, and general pediatric plastic surgery, such as webbed hand reconstruction. I plan to continue working with the Global Smile Foundation in the future.

Personal interests

My interests outside of work focus on the creative: vinyl, attending concerts, playing music, exploring superhero mythology, and watching Marvel movies.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
