Five Stars

This physician helped me get thru the worst time of my life. She helped me understand my diagnosis and treatment options. She answered all of my questions clearly, and answered them again when I forgot the answers. She treated me with compassion and made me feel like I was the most special patient she had. I know from discussing my experience with other patients treated by Dr. Lavigne, that they had a similar experience. I feel fortunate to have had such a doctor, I cannot recommend her or the staff at the Barrett Cancer Center, highly enough.

One Star

Dr. Lavigne told me that the risk of recurrence of my cancer was 26% but two other doctors told me it was a number much lower than that. I don't think she knows anything about the type of cancer I had or how to treat. She just wanted to use her new toy at Univ. Pointe.

WONDERFUL

Dr. Lavigne is exceptionally concerned. She tailors treatment to the individual. She spends an enormous amount of time with a patient and is very personable. She is a positive, upbeat person. She listened and made sure she interpreted my case correctly.The staff at Barrett Center were wonderful, as well.
