  • Ratings & Comments from Patients

    To ensure our ratings come only from verified patients, we work with Press Ganey, a third-party organization. Press Ganey sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVHN’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. Read more about our survey.

Her bedside manner put me at ease and made me feel well taken care of--as if I were the most important person in her very busy day.
