A couple months ago lump was found in my breast. I had all the required test and the doctor told me at my age it did not look good. Of course I was devastated. I feared the worse. I would be three days before I got my results. Three days ran into the weekend. On Monday I thought to email Dr. Lovelady and I was to hear my results on Tuesday. I emailed Dr. Lovelady and ask him to review the… See more

I feel very lucky to have Dr. Lovelady as a Primary Care Physician. He is knowledgeable and considerate; listens to my concerns , doesn't treat them as frivolous but helps me figure out what to do and how to treat them. He is honest and caring and doesn't just prescribe another drug and send me on my way. Very important to me as I get older and require more medical attention, I… See more

I am very happy with Dr. Steve Lovelady. I love the fact that he listens to my every word and addresses my complaints. I've tried very hard to get in with him for 10 yrs. Thanks to MDVIP it was possible. His nurse is wonderful, compassionate, gentle and professional. His receptionist, always does her best to get me in to see him that day or the next. It's the best experience I… See more

When Dr. Lovelady first went into the MDVIP program I wasnt in a financial situation to go into the program. I was deeply saddened that I was going to lose the best Dr Id ever had. Looking for another Dr was a nightmare. The ones who would see me were very curt and wouldnt listen to me and other Drs. were not taking new patients. It was an agonizing period for me. Thankfully, after a time,… See more

Dr. Lovelady is one of the most caring and professional doctors I've every known. I'm a retired Air Force Colonel, so I've been exposed to many doctors over my 64 years. Dr. Lovelady and his staff are superb! Not only is he extremely knowledgeable and experienced, he is a doctor you enjoy going to see. I respect him as a doctor as well as a friend.

from Patricia in AL February 28, 2018 for Steve Lovelady, MD

I met Steve Lovelady thirty years ago at DCH ED. Was so impressed with his expertise, demeanor and character that when he went into private practice I signed up. He has been an excellent partner in my health care journey.
