Was originally supposed to go to another doctor, however found out they miss said their info on ZocDoc and they actually didn’t take my insurance. So after cancelling that appointment I quickly found Dr. Kavanagh. Their staff was extremelyfriendly and took note of all the reasons I came in. He after a full examination he immediately knew what the issue was and came up with plan A, B, and C. Very professional and nice. Highly recommend and will continue to be my orthopedic doctor.

The office was amazing. I was checked in immediately, and within a minute brought into a room. I was asked the normal questions and then the Dr. Kavanagh came in about a minute later and spent ample time listening and discussingmy issues. As well as looking at my history before arriving, so he was fully prepared when we met. I would recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic care.

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 beenmore 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.
