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 thelast 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!!

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 timeexplaining 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.

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

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 andset 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 45minutes after the scheduled time. My time is everybit as important as theirs!!! This is a waste of my time.
