The office staff was friendly. We did not have to wait long. Dr. Kavanagh was efficient yet thorough in his treatment of my daughter. We are very happy with Dr. Kavanagh.
I'm always a little apprehensive when going to a new doctor for the first time. But I had a little accident and needed to see someone ASAP, which Zocdoc is great for. So I found Dr Kavanaugh and couldn't have been more pleased. He was on time, great bedside manner, diagnosed easily and quickly, took his time to explain and recommend a treatment plan and spent all the time needed to answer my questions. Office staff also very nice, friendly and efficient. All around great experience. I think I've found myself a new orthopedist.
Professional and great bed side manners
I love Dr. Kavanaugh and his staff. He is an awesome doctor-very knowledgeable, confident, patient, and caring. You feel cared about from the time you walk into his office. After surgery, he is always available. I am so glad to have been treated by him...the absolute best!
Great Doctor, knows how to treat his patients. Everyone were friendly in the office.
He and his staff were very gentle and compassionate.
Prompt service and very attentive staff and Dr!
Called back quickly to discuss results of MRI, explained the issues and options, didn't pressure me into surgery
He's honest and takes the time to listen more than most doctors do.
Dr. Kavanagh was very thorough in his explanations and took the time to describe what he was doing. I recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic services.
Very pleasant doctor with great bed side manners. Never orders any tests unless they are absolutely necessary, preferring to first deal with pain medications and exercise first. Highly recommended.
Excellent care and consideration of my problem. Options explained clearly and treatment began. Very pleased with dr. Kavanagh
Very knowledgeable. Took the time to explain in detail my problem/
Dr. Kavanagh was very pleasant and knowledgeable with a great bedside manner. I felt at ease with him right away. I really like doctors that make you feel comfortable and explain things in a way that make sense without making you feel stupid. He took his time and explained what he was doing and why and I was very satisfied with the way the exam went. Highly recommended!
I wish I had this doctor years ago. He is excellent. He explained my condition even going so far as to draw a picture. He also offered options. I would definitely, without a doubt, positively go back!
Love the office! Everyone is very friendly and I will definitely recommend them to anyone I know!
Very professional. Explains things well. Friendly. Highly recommended.
Dr. Kavanagh is a good diagnostician. He did a good thorough exam and explained the results of my exam well. He explained my treatment plan and was thorough in answering my questions. Unfortunately he is abrupt in his exam. I expect surgeons to cause some pain when they examine me, its often part of the diagnostic process. However, dr. Kavanagh provided no warning prior to causing pain and he didnt respond at all to my obvious pain that occurred during his exam.
Went as expected.
Dr. K was familiar with this type of ankle injury, and based on x-rays was able to explain what happened internally. Recommended treatment plan and time to heal seemed to fit the severity.
Dr. Kavanagh was very calm and took the time to listen to every detailed symptom I wanted to provide. He constructed a treatment plan that was catered to me. Hopefully my problem will not persist, but if it does, I will definitely not mind going back!
The staff was very professional. Dr. Kavanagh was very friendly and took good care of my issue.
Doctor is very nice as well as the staff. Have to go.back for follow ups, but so far, pleased with my visit.
Dr. Kavanagh was very nice, explained everything, answered all my questions, didn't waste any time, and wasn't rushing to get out of the room. He did x Rays right then and there and all the women working in the office were super friendly. I would and will recommend him to anyone who needs to see an orthopedist.
Dr. Kavanagh was very nice and professional, however, did not help me fix my medical issue. Still in the same amount of pain I was three days ago.
