My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The power of the patient‐physician relationship cannot be underestimated in one’s healthcare. I hold this fundamental responsibility as paramount in my practice of family medicine. This philosophy is deeply rooted and comes from emulating my grandfather who practiced small town family medicine in rural Pennsylvania. It is ingrained in me that the health of the individual affects the health of our families, and ultimately the health of our community. The beauty and closeness of this Southern Delaware coastal community is what inspired my husband and I to change the course of our young family’s lives and relocate here in 2016, after I practiced at a hospital‐based family medicine group for 9 years in the Reading, Pennsylvania area. My life experiences, not only in the role of physician, but also as mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend, make me sensitive to the many complexities and responsibilities that can affect our overall health.

I view my patients as family, and my goal for your health is to focus on you as a “whole” – mind, body and spirit. I strive to focus on prevention and wellness. I emphasize the importance of diet and lifestyle choices, and how they influence our health and our ability to impact disease prevention. I also work diligently to diagnose and manage both acute and chronic conditions. As an MDVIP‐affiliated physician, I can take the time and energy necessary to develop a personalized care plan to maximize health outcomes for each patient I serve. My goal is to empower you and lead you to be the happiest and healthiest version of yourself.

from Serena in DE March 27, 2024 for Erin E. Lavin, DO

Dr. Erin Lavin, When I first became a patient at Mid Atlantic, I was under the care of Dr. Catherine Deluca. I was disheartened when I learned she would leave, as I had established a good rapport with her. The prospect of finding a new doctor was daunting. However, upon meeting Dr. Erin Lavin, my apprehension dissolved. From our initial interaction, I sensed a strong connection with her. Dr.… See more

Dr. Erin O. Lavin The quality of a relationship can best be measured by the quality of communication between two people. Yet quality communication is rarer than most would believe: it requires the conscientious development of skills and a secure, empathetic personality that listens with skill, speaks with skill and conveys a measure of trust to enable each party to feel safe. Telling is not… See more

Her clear communication, knowledge, compassion and warmth makes her an… See more

from April in DE March 11, 2024 for Erin E. Lavin, DO

I’m 68 years old. In my lifetime, I have had 6 primary care physicians. Five of them were “ old school doctors” who I felt were lacking “ state of the art” medical knowledge. One of them was knowledgable but very clinical and lacked the personality that made me have complete confidence in the ability to diagnose and treat me. Then, I met Dr. Erin Lavin. I am so happy, relieved, and actually… See more

from Debbie in DE February 12, 2024 for Erin E. Lavin, DO

Dr Erin Lavin is always there for me. On a Friday night I had fallen and by Saturday morning I thought I may have broken my wrist. I texted her and immediately she responded. She met me in her office, gave me an X-ray procedure form and within 30min I was on my way home!!! Fortunately it was not broken. She also responds immediately if I need her. She is just the BEST! I can’t thank… See more
