Verified Patient Reviews
VERY UNORGANIZED and incredibly sketchy. Never available due to seriously limited schedule.
the visit was great everyone was super nice and quick.
Dr. Cavuto is always compassionate. He is very caring and sensitive to your needs. You are a person and he treats you with respect. You are NEVER a number.
Dr. Cavuto was great, very professional and personable! He made me feel comfortable and welcome for my first visit.
Dr. Cavuto is TOP NOTCH! You will not find another Primary Care doctor like him... The reality is health care has become a revolving door and Dr. Cavuto makes you feel like you are his only patient. His advice is practical, responsible, and sensible. He truly cares for his patients and invested time to ensure you understand your visit by clearly explaining or clarify medical terminology that can often feel intimidating. Our family is lucky to have found Dr. Cavuto!
I was very satisfied. Dr. Cavuto addressed issues in one visit that my former doctor didn't address in 4 years. Great physician. Very thorough
I appreciated the no frills efficiency of Dr. Cavuto's practice. He seems to be a kind and conscientious physician who doesn't make one feel as if he is anxious to hurry on to his next patient. I am glad to have found him.
I have only had two appointments- he's a great doctor, and a great guy- he clearly cares for his patients' well being. However, I can't get through on the office phone or online to set an appointment anymore- I'm wondering if I have to find a new doctor to go to, as it's cold/flu season plus I have dental stuff that I need a referral for!
He was awesome! The wait was somewhat long and the ambiance is somewhat uncharacteristic, but the overall experience was auspicious, and Dr. Cavuto was both knowledgeable and pleasurable.
This was my first time with Dr. Cavuto and I liked him very much. I didn't mind the wait. He was very attentive and calm. He took his time with me and I appreciate that. He's my new Primary Care Doc!!!!
Solid DO. However, if his office has a reputation for running appointments late, he should be aware of this (check the waiting room lag) and curtail the per-appointment banter.
I had an excellent first visit.. He is now my primary care doctor. Dr. Cavuto is very intelligent, well-informed, and considerate. He made a number of suggestions for my improvement, but never in a pushy way. He complimented me on a number of good things I do, like exercise, and posed a number of things to consider. I was really pleased.
Dr Cavuto was nice enough, wait time was over 1 hr.
I was disappointed for 2 reasons - 1) The wait time (1hr 35minutes). I was left in a back room for half an hour in the cold with nothing but a 1990s Black and Decker space heater to make me comfortable. When I was finally acknowledge no one apologized for forgetting me in the back room. 2) At the time of diagnosis very little time was spent with me (3-5minutes) about my chief complaint. I was simply prescribed an antibiotic and sent to see a specialist the following week. Long wait times should correlate with a very thorough examination and more time spent making me understand what could possibly be wrong.
Very helpful and down to earth...
The wait time was almost long enough for me to leave. However, it was my first visit and everyone assured me that Dr. Cavuto was thorough, skilled, and caring. I couldn't agree more and I was glad that I waited. I would highly recommend Dr. Cavuto.
Love this guy!
Dr. Cavuto is so caring and always takes the time to answer any questions and concerns. Although I moved, I would not change doctors. It is worth the extra travel time to see Dr. Cavuto.
I waited for over 4.5 hours in a hot, dirty room. Who cares about bedside manner after that!
Awesome doctor, I will be going to him from now on.
Very professional and direct. This was my first visit, and I will be back.
Love this guy!
Excellent caring friendly doctor. He smiles with a sense of humor and feels like family.
Dr Covuto was great for me. I need a doctor to tell me what I need to focus on for dietary needs and what it takes for a healthy lifestyle and he really took the time to give it to me straight.
The office is by no means fancy and the furniture may be old. Even so, Dr. Cavuto is knowledgeable, personable, and thorough. The receptionist area is filled with files, but she still had the time to be friendly and treat me as a person. If you are looking for fancy, brand new facilities, this is not the place. If you are looking for a good doctor, even when you are traveling and need help, go there! His office is just half a block north from the Taker Morris Orange Line subway station.
Very personal and welcoming. Quick turn around on results.
