"He is probably the best Dr I’ve ever seen. Knowledgable but not arrogant, skilled surgeon and so personable that you forget he’s a Dr I highly recommend him "

"Dr. Le Fave is the best! He is a great surgeon, is easy to communicate with and has great bedside manner. I’m a month out from surgery (February 2024) and I’m very pleased with results of a rather extensive surgery (parastomal hernia & closing existing ileostomy stoma and creating a new stoma). "

"The doctor did a fantastic job. He performed a colectomy. to remove a polyp which was thought to be malignant, but wasn’t. He removed not only the polyp but several lymph nodes just to be sure. The good news was that it was not malignant. The surgery was robot-assisted. I saw him for a follow-up and I am healing very well with no complications. I consider him an excellent surgeon and would recommend him to anyone. "

"Amazing! I had colon surgery 2 years ago. If I would have known him back then, he would have been my guy. Literally saved my life after performing a 2nd surgery in December. Hands down the best! Great bedside manner and personality. He will be my Dr from this point forward and I will make the 2 hour drive, every time. Also will not hesitate to recommend him for my friends and loved ones."

"I can’t praise Dr. LeFave enough. There are not enough stars here or in a clear night sky. He came to my rescue on a Friday night at midnight to perform a life-saving surgery. After major laparoscopic surgery was performed by another surgeon two days prior, I was released from the hospital the next day. That didn’t go well and after two days of frequent vomiting, I was brought back to the hospital. Dr. LeFave put me at ease with his professionalism and by joking with me. I felt I was going to be fine in his skilled hands. Before I was released 5 days later, he examined me to ensure I was ready to go home. My follow-up exam in his office today was thorough and I was even seen early. His staff was courteous and caring. I highly recommend Dr. LeFave. He is an excellent surgeon and has a great sense of humor!"

"Dr. LeFave is the only surgeon I would trust to take care of my 95yo mother with a heart condition. His abilities, coupled with his compassion, allowed us to get through this episode with as little trauma as possible. She had very little pain for only a few days post op, a testiment to his skills. "

"Dr. LeFave is an amazing surgeon and truly saved my life. I was suffering for almost 2 years with other doctors before I was finally referred to him. He was very helpful and took the time to understand my pain and what was going on with my body. He made me feel very safe and very confident in his skills to give me my health back. I’m so happy I was able to have such a kind and personable surgeon take care of me during my time of need. Thank you so much Dr. LeFave"

"Dr. Lefave performed a hernia repair surgery for me in 2019. The hernia was the result of a mesh failure from a previous cancer surgery. Dr. Lefave did a great job of explaining what would be done to remove the old mesh, and repair the hernia by insertion of a larger/improved mesh. I have been very pleased with the results of the surgery! I would definitely recommend Dr. Lefave to anyone requiring hernia surgery. He is a very caring physician. "
