Verified Patient Reviews
Precise and accurate. Explained diagnosis and course of treatment thoroughly. I appreciate the time he spent.
Again this young professional impressed me.He managed to be succinct without being vague. He didn't waste his time or mine yet managed to be through. Again... A plus.
Dr. Cavazos is very gentle and considerate of my needs and concerns. He takes the time to explain procedures and considers my past history in making recommendations for treatments. I really like his conservative approach.
He answers all of my questions, explains things so they are easily understood, and addresses my concerns in a relaxed, straight forward and friendly manner. He is very personable and easy to talk to.
We've been seeing Dr. Cavazos for about two years already, and all visits and attention given to us have been very perfessional. He patiently listens to all of what you have to say. And is an excellent doctor. Staff members are sweethearts. We highly recommend him.
I liked how he listened to me. I look forward to finding out how to take care of my issues.
I would highly recommend Dr. Cavazos to my family or friends. I personally think he is an excellent doctor and he definitely restores my faith in quality physicians and healthcare. Previously I had not followed through with any doctor for the last 7-9 years because I just didn't believe the providers or their staff really cared at all--there was no continuity of care and I had my doubts that even the lab work they ordered was being checked. With Dr. Cavazos and his staff I do not feel I need to double check on everything. Thank you so much DR CAVAZOS, I feel extremely lucky to have found such a superb doctor!!
He was very professional, caring and Focused. He is my gastro go to dr.
This was my first visit with Dr. Cavazos. He was very caring, listened to my concerns and even though I kept him waiting after hours, he was courteous and did not rush me. His office staff was also very courteous and understanding when I had mistakenly made them wait after hours. They were very kind and understanding.
Great visit. I was surprised at how friendly the staff that took me to the back was and so was Doctor Cavazos. It certainly made me feel that I was receiving good care.
Found it to be professional, concise, specific to my medical needs.
Dr. Cavazos was very personable and made my visit feel at ease. Answered all of my questions and explained what to expect.
He was professional in all respects and reached a thoughtful plan in moving forward.
Everyone was very nice. Quick.
He was very polite very understanding and paid attention to my concerns
Dr. Cavazos is very compassionate and really listened to me. He considered my concerns and was willing to proceed with them in mind. I like his conservative approach and quiet manner.
Today was just a consultation, however did not feel uncomfortable whatsoever. Very patient and listens to your concerns. I highly recommend him.
Jorge Cavazos and his team were very nice and professional.
With special needs it's difficult to find a physician that will take his/ her time. He was phenomenal with her, acknowledged, conversed with her.
I had to reschedule because Dr Cavazos called in sick
Excellent doctor-I'm so Glad I went to him after being disappointed with Doctors for last 15 years.
After almost a year and also a week in hospital, many medicines, for my diarrhea Dr Cavazos had me doing tons better after about 4 months! Needless to say, I am very happy! Hope I continue feeling better. Thank you Dr. Cavazos!
He was considerate to me either having a panic or anxiety attack. Was very informational about procedure
I waited for 20 minutes but Just the normal time, i did not really wait extra time. I was taken in at the exact appointment time! Great service from staff and doctor. Very knowledgeable, helpful and reassuring. Nice person too.
Finally a Doctor that believes in the oath he took. To provide treatment to the sick adequately, timely and with respect. Not for the almighty $$$. Dr. Cavazos you are Awsome
Dr. Cavazos is extremely sharp. I had put off treatment due to my angst of being revolved through the heath care cattle chute system. Dr. Cavazos, with his knowledge of my condition, as well as his commitment to spend the time explaining it to me, has lessened the sting of that process. To be clear of my opinion of his capabilities I am writing this endorsement, of Dr. Cavazos, in spite of my loathing of being forced to create a user ID and password just to submit it. In short Dr. Cavazos is what I require in a physician.
Very professional. I'm very happy with him.
He always takes his time with you and answers all your questions.
Dr Cavazos was very nice and I felt comfortable discussing my issues. The nurse also was very nice.. My appointment was at 2:45 but was not called in until around 3:30, that I did not like.
Dr. Cavazos took the time to listen to my explanation of all of my symptoms, explained all possible causes of said symptoms, and offered multiple options for treatment of said symptoms.
He was kind and it was a short visit. It would've been very nice to have had an explanation about the medication I was given and a checklist to follow so that I don't forget the instructions that I was told, like if I needed to start the medication right away, how many a day, if I needed to fast, etc. I think he said to wait after the blood tests for medication, but am not entirely sure
Dr. Cavazos is always pleasant and spends time to me. He listens to any concerns I may have, regardless how big or small they are.
Dr.Cavasos is awesome!
So far, I have seen- or tried to see- 4 Doctors who take Medicare. Dr. Cavazos and his staff are by far the most professional. Everyone was very nice, and my visit was pleasant. Thank all of you so much!
He was very thorough. Running test to rule out all possibilities.
Always very kind and professional. A calm demeanor that puts my daughter at ease. Very caring! We are very happy with treatment my daughter has been getting!
Well I'm very happy with the doctor Took the time to hear what you had to say Gave me the best advice on what's to be done first besides taking precautions of it net being something else . I really enjoyed this doctor very much Not like all the others very good I enjoyed his professional ism ....
Very Unhappy overall. The staff was super nice and looked like they really cared but with the doctor himself, not too happy. He brushed off the reason why I went into the visit and just ordered labs that I requested and set my follow up visit 6 weeks out. Didn't give me a reason on why I was having what I had.
Everything was good except the wait. I completed the required paperwork online five days before the appointment. So then why do they ask that you arrive one half hour prior to the appointment and then do not see you until 45 minutes after the scheduled time. My time is everybit as important as theirs!!! This is a waste of my time.
It was an excellent visit. Dr. Cavazos is a brilliant doctor. He explains the process of banding and rest of the procedure. He is highly knowledgeable and has midas touch. A great doctor/surgeon knowing his job extremely well. He is very courteous to patients. Very friendly. A great doctor with empathy and care for patients. God bless Dr. Jorge Cavazos. I strongly recommend him to all my friends, family and fraternity.
My visit today with Dr. Cavazos went very well as did my last two visits with him. Knowledgeable, calm and reassuring. A very good listener with a genuine interest in patient care. Highly recommended.
I was very please with the Doctor. He was very professional.
It was so helpful to complete all my new patient forms online. It cut down on the waiting room time. Dr. Cavazos answered all my questions and took his time with my visit.
First time visit was very impressive. No wait time on appointment.
This was the first time I have met Dr. Jorge Cavazos. He was every understanding and what I like about him was he listen to me about my problem. Thank you Dr. Cavazos!
I thought he was informitive and very professional.
Really nice person to talk to. He has a lot of knowledge.
Very easy to talk to and he tolerates me very well!
Dr. Cavazos was very informative and kind. He answered all my questions and made me feel like everything was going to be ok. He is a good doctor.
Still too soon to make a decision.
Dr cavazos is great! Just feels like your talking to a friend not a doctor. Takes his time and really cares about your concerns.
Dr. Grasped the problem immediately. Courteous and great "bedside manner".
I think he is a great Dr. He helps you understand your condition and the reason for any and all tests. I trust him with my health concerns. thanks Pete O.
Muy profesional. Muy respetoso y escucho todos mis problemas. Senti bien comoda y estoy agradecida porque el doctor habla espanol.
Always a pleasure
He went out of his way to make sure I got my medication got on a program to get it covered for a very low cost. His owners and his whole staff are extremely extremely helpful very welcoming.
Dr. Cavazos is a pleasure to talk with and gave me confidence that he is a professional and caring doctor .
Dr. Cavazos conducted himself in the best professional manner. He listened to my concerns and gave his opinion in layman's terms, which made me feel comfortable enough to ask all the questions I had for him. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Cavazos, was very pleasant & professional. I am a new member of his practice and the community. I will feel very comfortable returning to him as my gastroenterologist. I know that doctors get behind but it really was quite a long wait. Perhaps the next time they will be on schedule or close to it. He is an excellent physician!
Well organized. My first ever gastroenterology visit. Dr. Cavazos took his time. I did not feel rushed. Staff were friendly. A well organized medical unit. I was well pleased. Appointment time was as scheduled. Thanks.
Good listener,great understanding
Awesome doc, very nice. Loved the office people, everyone was happy and very nice.
answered all questions very proffesional.
He informed me that I am setting myself up for failure since I am doing a maintenance dosage. He didn't offer any alternative option. Pretty sure I will never trust him with any of my medical concerns or needs ever again. Thanks for nothing!
Overall, great. They told me to show up 30 minutes before my appointment, I'm not sure why because they knew I was filling out all the new patient forms online. When I showed up, 30 minutes early, all I did was sign 2 papers and they took my picture. I figured maybe they would call me in earlier, but no I still waiting a while after my original appointment time. About Dr. Cavazos though, he was a great Doctor. Very good at listening and taking time to explain and teach you what is going on. Very kind and doesn't seem rushed at all (which could explain the wait, but that's okay).
DR. Cavazos was most cordual and knowledgeable in his advice to me as to how I should treat my iBS in future attacks. A good man!
Talking with Dr cavasos was a pleasure he listened to me and explained everything. And told me what steps he will take. Tks again Dr. Cavasos.
The office staff was very pleasant and efficient and Dr. Cavazos was very thorough and competent in discussing my needs.
Excellent Doctor, Truly Cares And Understands His Patients. His Staff Are Very Attentive And Outstanding. Truly A Great Team.
Dr. Cavazos was very personable and made me feel at ease. He explained everything well and answered all of my questions and concerns.
Dr Cavazos was very helpful yesterday, He took his time to explain what I needed to do for my treatment but more importantly the WAY I needed to do them. What changes, in the way I was feeling, I could expect to see. And his reassurance in the overall postures we would be enacting. Overall I must say it was a very good visit.
I feel that he really listens and cares about me as a patient, he's the best M.D. there is.
I have plenty of tattoos. My main physician and DR Cavazos clearly had a miscommunication between one another. I woke up, drove 30-40 min just to be told that he will not treat me unless I do not get anymore tattoos. So I spent 40 dollars just to have my stomach checked by him using a stethoscope and I was politely told he could not treat me. Make sure the person who referred you understands that if you IV use or have tattoos and don't plan on stopping hep c treatment can wait.
The doctor didn't seem to care about my problem, he did not engage in anything I was saying,. He didnot ask me much or care to give me any answer of my problem, When I left I felt worst ,. I was so disappointed , How can there be doctors that have no interest in their patients, Interest should be a requirement in medical school , It was a waste of time and money!!
It was great he always explains everything so clearly to where you understand the next steps thank you doctor.
He made me feel comfortable throughout the visit. Although he assured me the symptoms would go away within a few weeks, I still feel as though there might be additional treatment..
Friendly and patient
Great he answered all my questions
Dr. Cavazos and the entire staff were very professional from check in to checkout. Great experience
He was great and explained the diagnosis and also gave us education about our sons diagnosis thank you Dr. Cavazos.
Love the visit very friendly place
He offered me some treatment options. Recommended some diagnostic tests. I feel confident he could help me with my lower g.i. issues. Will continue to see this doc.
I was happy that I didn't have to wait very long.
He carefully asks Questions and then explains answers clearly and not condescendingly. This is very refreshing.

Dr. Cavazos was very nice, thorough and listened to everything I had to say. I was very happy with my visit.
All the team is friendly
First visit all went well and I was provided some very valuable advice. I was very happy with the visit and am hopeful of improvement in the future
Dr. Cavazos is really easy to talk to and is thorough in investigating all possible avenues in order to rule out as much as possible in seeking a correct diagnosis.
He is very patient and explains things thoroughly. I am deaf and we always have an interpreter present which is vital to our communication. He takes his time to make sure i understand. I also feel like he seems very compassionate towards me. I really like him a lot.
I had a very good visit. Checked out all areas that needed checking making me feel very comfortable.
Since this was an initial visit, he took the time to evaluate my condition and explained the first course of action that he plans to take. A short but thorough medical history was taken and, with that information, he will begin running some tests to determine how he can help me.
Superior skills. Excellent advice. Nice guy. Completely satisfied overall. I drive 9 hours to keep Dr. Cavazos as my specialist.
I have seen Dr Cavazos several times over a reoccurring issue which now seems resolved. He is very timely and professional. He is clear and upfront but in a very gentle manner. He is very thorough in pursuing causes of my issue and in its treatment.
Pleasant and relaxed.
Gets straight to point
First time seeing this doctor. Very pleasant and appeared to listen to my concerns. Would recommend him to others.

This was fast and the best visit I have ever had. Dr. Cavazos is excellent and succinct in his observations of the issues you are having. In my 58 years of going to the Doctor, this is the best and nicest Doctor I have ever found.
it was informative and helpful. Although I was disappointed that the lab results were not obtained from Westover before our appointment. I had provided the info for you to get it all 3-4weeks ahead of time so that it would be available so that Dr Cavazos could make a determination as to if my husband Lester would need a colonoscopy now or in 2019. Please get those record now so that we can make that decision soon.
Dr. Cavazos is a great dr. will never change drs. becauas he is the best
I was very pleased with my appointment with Dr. Cavazos. He is very kind & made me feel comfortable right away. The whole office system runs so efficiently. I was very impressed. Thank you to Dr. Cavazos & staff for such wonderful treatment. I know I am in the best hands.
He's very nice. Listens to my problems,give me feedback. Also checked to see if he could find my pain any where inside. Gave me new meds that seems to be working for me, right now.
It was a short visit. I went in assuming the worst and I came out with a peace of mind about my condition. It is also worth noting that this appointment was my initail interaction with Dr. Cavazos. He listened to all of my symptoms and thoughtfully suggested a course of action for my recovery. To date, along with medication and better eating habits; I am on a quick road to feeling much better. The office staff was efficient, friendly, and warm. After a phone call to set an appointment, I immediately sent new patient documents over e-mail to fill out before I reached the office. Then I received a welcoming text message reminder about my appointment which was nice suprise. I felt this was an effective way to accept new patients and make them feel welcome. The woman at the front had me complete some other administrative tasks and almost immediately I was in a room waiting for Dr. Cavazos. Shortly after I left the office, I recieved a text message AND phone call from the office that my prescription had already been sent to my pharmacy of choice. Overall a very seamless and simple experience deserving of recommendation.
He was ver attentive and LISTENED to what I said. He commented on every question. Very knowledgeable. Made me feel at ease .
I felt comfortable and he explained everything.
