Dr. Cavalier was good. Fun to work with. I went in for a nasty cold I was having and left feeling confident I would be well soon.
very caring and helpful . She gave you complete details. she took time to help you understand what my son needed . she was very kind .
Very professional and was extremely informative over concerns I had for my daughters. Would definitely recommend her to parents looking for a great pediatrician
She was kind and patient she explained to my husband and myself what our symptoms are and what we can do to have a healthier life .I would definitely recommend her .
I personally do not care for this doctor she has tried to guilt trip me for a previous review I left her. I need up cutting my visit short and left. I will never go back to this office.
I will not be returning to this office. The receptionist treats patients poorly. Wouldn’t take a message for the dr to call me back and was very rude at the appointment. The doctor was professional but unfortunately the receptionist’s attitude out weighed everything positive about my visit.
Rude, poor bedside manner, opinionated, and she doesn’t take her patient into consideration.
Doctor is nice, to the point. I did not have to wait long to see the doctor. She was very thorough, answered all my questions, good with my baby. She gave me her cell phone number for emergencies.
She was nice and it was a good first visit. No frills office, but in a good way. She couldnt specifically help and recommeded an Orthopedic, then gave me a rec and asked if anything else was wrong.
The staff was very professional.
Dr. Cavalier was professional but she doesn't have the warmest of bedside manners. I felt she was slightly judgemental but nothing you can't brush off to be honest. Both her and the receptionist have the same stoic like attitude and mannerisms, they are polite and get straight to the point but I can see how they may come off as rude to other people. I wish they were friendlier in the sense of approachability. They're quite intimidating, so keep that in mind.
It was expedient (because there were no others waiting).
Very professional and knowledgeable
Very knowledgeable and thorough , listens and addresses your issues
Very nice Doctor. Rude receptionist.
She's very professional! She treats her patient nicely with a smile! She is efficient in her field, she pays attention to details and answers your every concern which is very important. In addition her clinic is neat and clean. I highly recommend her! Take it from me and you won't regret. Thanks for reading
Very cold. She recommended several tests and I had to ask for the results some which required action.
No bedside manner
Very pleasant and professional
Very professional, understanding, efficient and knowledgeable
Great doctor and wonderful staff. Will recommend
She's very helpful, nice, and patient. Glad I chose her as my primary physician!
I made an appointment for later on in the day for annual physical/foot pain. Got there about 15 minutes before my appointment and the office was closed. I had to call to make sure it was the right place. Had to wait standing outside in the cold for about 30 minutes. The excuse given by the office manager when he got there 15 minutes after my appointment was that the receptionist called out sick. Filled out paperwork and waited until the doctor finally got to the office and saw me. She didn't bother actually looking at my foot - said I should've worn socks instead of stockings. Wanted me to tell her my height and weight instead of taking measurements herself. Didn't use gloves when she took blood samples. Wanted me to come in to see her again just to get bloodwork results. The entire visit was just one thing after another that made me feel like the doctor didn't care/didn't know what she was doing. Extremely disappointing.
She was very helpfhelpful and very caring.
She was ok.
Dr. Cavalier listened to all my concerns & is a knowledgeable doctor & gives you the attention you need. Highly recommend.
She was great. My kids loved her. Also I needed a physical paperwork filled out and she immediately had the paperwork filled out. I didnt have to wait days. That was great.
Very Professional and very easy to get along with. The visit was very good. Would enjoy going back.
When I got there the Doctor wasn't there. I was told by staff that she would be be 2 hours late. They could have at least called to notified me of this. Instead of me going to waste my time.
Overall it was horrible. She is not my sons primary but she was open and it was an emergency I thought that anything is better then taking him to a nasty emergency room . When you walk in the receptionist doesn't greet you and she is very rude. We were on time for our 4:45 appointment and she didn't acknowledge us till about 5:00 and it was only one other person there. Then around 5:25 she calls my health insurance to see if it's active. Then two people that came in after we came in were called before us. So just as I'm going to leave around 5:40 after calling another physicians office she tells me they already charged my insurance and the doctor called us to the back about 10 minutes later. The doctor herself didn't seem to enthusiastic. She barely interacted with my child and didn't even look my way when I spoke and to make matters worst couldn't even tell me what was wrong exactly. I would never take my son there again!
Was not pleased
The wait was extremely long. The doctor was in with 2 babies before me. To tell the truth I almost left because I was so aggravated with the wait. Thank God the doctor was knowledgeable and nice enough. I will visit again next week hopefully the wait won't be too long.
I like the Dr. and her hours are great .
She took her time, was very caring to answer all my questions. The office was clean and very inviting.
Doctor was friendly and pleasant. Answered all my questions
It was ok she listens n tells u details seems very nice
2 words, she's great!
She is professional and straight to the point, but seemed bothered by my taking up her time. She wasn't in the office and I had to wait for her to come in/back two times I went. She knows her stuff, but I would not recommend, unless she is the only option.
My appointment was the first one in the morning, at 10:15 am, but the doctor didn't arrive until past 11 am.
She had a new secretary, she was very warm and friendly. The doctor was very nice to my daughter, who got 4 vaccines and was crying her little eyes out. It is always a pleasure seeing her.
The front desk was very helpful and friendly. I didn't have to wait long to see the doctor. She was direct and knowledgable. Everything I needed was done in the office and by her. Overall good experience.
Dr. Cavalier was extremely thorough and professional. The office was very clean, receptionist was friendly. I think I've found my families new physician. Also, I gave her a form to fill out for school registration which was completed immediately. I've been to several other doctors offices who made me wait as long as a week before I received the doctors forms. I would recommend Dr. Cavalier to a friend.
Very friendly and detailed.
The receptionist was very nasty and made me sit in the office for over an hour then informed me my insurance wasn't active just to find out it was and the doctor herself had a very bad attitude and spoke on the phone in the hallway while patients were waiting.
Very prompt, great doctor
Doctor was very attentive and thorough and receptionist was very pleasant despite long wait time. Doctor did apologize for delay but I felt bad for the 3 patients who had been waiting almost as long as myself and then had to wait on me. She did promptly return my call for test result information the next day herself which I appreciated as it cleared up some confusion on my part.
I would like to say,, that Dr.C was a perfect match for me,, meaning I felt very comfortable with her,, she was very patient and very Interested in my Health,, which is very important to me.. And she will be my Primary Doctor from now on.. Thank u Dr.C
Lyudmila Cavalier, MD is a very knowledgeable professional, however she needs to be mindful on the way she speaks with her clients.
She was great and patient, also answered all of my questions!! SHE'S GREAT!!
Will definitely be back with my son. Very happy with the service.
I feel she did not listen to what I was explaining to her and she definitely did not take the time to clearly explain my results and treatment.
DR Cavalier was ver thourough and professional.
It was pleasant. Dr was knowledgeable on every topic and concerns of mines. Her old school approach was a breath of fresh air.
Dr. Cavalier was thorough and very helpful with my questions. She was both friendly and very professional. The receptionist in the office was also a pleasure. This office has a great location on Metropolitan Avenue right next to Forest Park! I recommend Dr. Cavalier to the highest degree!
Dr. Cavalier was really great on my first visit. She help identify the problem and find a solution. She is very observant and acts fast to help solve the problem.
She listened very well. The visit was only short because that is all it needed to be. I never felt like she was rushing me out of her office. I will be continuing to use her.
Wonderful doctor and sweet receptionist! Love coming to see her.
The Dr. Was okay, but the receptionist has a really bad attitude.
I think she is an excellent doctor
I will go back to this office. She is very professional, and she explains things straight. No extra additives if not necessary
It was not what I would expect from a doctor because I explained my problem and she did not provide me with the help that I was looking for to serve my needs. She makes a perfect pediatrician but she is not cut-out for athletes or adults....
Dr. Cavalier submitted duplicate claims to my insurance and got paid twice from my health spending account. And she still sent me bill to claim she didn't receive the payment after I confirmed with my plan that they did release the money twice. Unbelievable !
Nice experience. Easy going and easy to talk to.
Dr. Cavalier was very professional, polite and pleasant. She asked questions to get to the root of the problem.
Service was excellent, the only issue I have is my time. I made an appointment online for 10:30am and when I got to the office I notice a sign that said 11am was opening time. Either the website or the office is not updating their information.
The doctor herself is fine. Polite and good with the kids. But that secretary of hers is very rude, ignores patients to talk to friends on the phone and has a nasty attitude. I do like the doctor and this pediatrician is within walking distance to my home which is the only reason i keep going.
I really felt welcomed and comfortable.
She listened to my concerns and explained everything very well!!! Awesome doctor
I was satisfied, she was professional, caring and efficient. I would recommend her.
She was brief direct knowledgable her secretary has somewhat of an attitude
She's friendly, caring and she listens.
She is a great doctor however the wait time for this visit was extremely long.
Excellent, very professional and liked the place and the Environment
Very professional and caring doctor.
Good, receptionist attitude stink tho.
Great doctor, Great receptionist, great environment
She's awesome! Super friendly and understanding. She even lets me know how I'm doing which is awesome considering my past doctors. Will keep and recommend to family and friends :)
I felt extremely at ease. Great experience
She provided one to one attention to her patient and review all past and present medical history solely. She was the nurse and the doctor. I like this, she takes full responsibility for all her patients and ensure their well being. I will recommend her for the children's care.
Very prefessional and caring doctor. Will definitely go back to her.
Dr Cavalier is outstanding!
she said she'll call me for a follow up on february, she never did.
She's very friendly and understands my problems.
She knows her job
ok and cool nice nurse
The visit was great, friendly and clean environment.
She was a good doctor. She did just enough to not be awful however she wasn't necessarily personable. The receptionist is ridiculously rude but efficient. Still searching for my perfect PCP.
Very good doctor she checks for everything!
We love it ... Can't wait to see her again.
Great she took time to answer and ask questions.
It was a great visit. She took time to ask and answer question. She give me details about my blood results
She was warm ..., informative and answered all my questions.
She was great with our son!
The doctor was very gentle and informative. She made my daughter feel comfortable. The staff members were polite and helpful. The facility was clean and safe.
Very nice, she is smart and knows her stuff. She recognized my symptoms as soon as I started to explain my issues.
I thought the visit was actually great and I am glad I found a new pediatrician.
It was an OK visit. I like the place more for its convenience of location than its service. Place is a little bit outdated and can step up on their professionalism when talking to their patients.
follow up with shots
Dr. Cavalier was very compassionate, nice, and respectful. It was my teenage son's first time visiting her, and she made my son feel very comfortable.
My daughter's Dr. visit was a very "last minute" thing as she had gone to another Dr. a week before but Dr. Cavalier immediately thoroughly evaluated my daughter and had her Rx ready for pick up - all in less than 45 mins. I am grateful for zocdoc's referral to her and will visit her again.
Office is kind of small but less than 30 minute wait. The doctor is a little too uptight for me. Zero personality,no laughs,no conversation other than why was I there! Very brief with her examinations. I found out after the fact that she was a pediatrician which blew my mind! How can you work with kids with that uptight drill Sargent attitude???? Never coming here again
Excellent doctor! Definitely will keep her for my child.Very knowledgeable and efficient doctor. She answered all my questions clearly and fully.She treated us with respect.We felt easy and comfortable.Medical staff very polite and helpful.
This is the worst medical office ever!!!
Dr and staff are very professional but the wait is entirely too long-almost two hours.
Very Professional doctor.
Dr. Cavalier is an Ok doctor, but sometimes she does seem a bit indifferent. My true objection though, is with her receptionist. Dr. Cavalier's receptionist is offensive, shows a continuous lack of professional etiquette, and has rude manners that overshadow most good qualities about the visit, and it's sad because Dr. Cavalier is a decent doctor. But we have to see a rude lady before and after seeing the doctor. Why? Will be switching doctors ASAP.
The visit was great, she took time asking and answering questions.
Shes kind of abrupt, not warm and welcoming at all. She left the door open the entire visit allowing everyone to hear my personal business. The visit was rushed. I wouldn't recommended her personally.
Very, quick. We were in the office within 15 minutes
I like the dr. Her receptionist is very rude And unprofessional
She took time to speak and check my daugther. Nice friendly doctor my daugther felt comfortable with her.
I would never suggest this doctor's office to anyone. Right now I am dealing with a very large bill (of which I was never informed from the desk BEFORE my visit, that such a bill may exist) for labs (which I never received the results from). When I first arrived there I was greeted by a, not so friendly, front desk women. The office was pretty empty so I figured I would not have to wait long. I had to wait 45min to an hour after my scheduled appointment to see the doctor. The doctor was alright, not one of my favorites, but she did what she was supposed to do. After my appointment I scheduled another appointment to get my results. When I arrived the next week to receive my results I was informed by the front desk person that the doctor "forgot about my appointment and left for the day." This was after I traveled all the way to the office from work. I left, very upset, and called another time to make an appointment and was informed by the front desk person " your insurance is not good so we cannot make an appointment for you to get your results." This is NOT true since the money comes out of my check every two weeks. I called my insurance to double check that I had the correct ID# and that there was not anything wrong with my insurance. As expected, I was informed that my insurance was perfectly fine. I called the office back again and gave the front desk lady a number to call in order to verify my insurance. I doubt she even wrote the number down. I have not heard anything from the office and it has now been months since my appointment and I still have not seen or heard any of my results, BUT I receive a bill every month. I would not recommend this doctor's office to my worst enemy.
Love this doctor so much I am changing my children to her office
Dr. Cavalier is a very pleasant doctor.
Very convenient. Pleasant manner
The office was very nice and clean, I thought it a little strange that as a pediatrician she didn't have toys or books in the waiting area for kids, but was impressed by her manner and her warmth, so I've decided to retain her as my newborn's caregiver and switch my older daughter to her as well.
The doctor was very helpful. She took her time and really examined my daughter. My daughter was comfortable. The office is very nice and the staff was friendly and professional.
Very thorough and professional
