Verified Patient Reviews
She is very professional , and answered all my concerns.
Tara was wonderful! Highly recommend her!
She is excellent and always gets me just what I need to get better!
Tara & the medical team are fantastic. I am a new patient & feel she really does care about helping me & wants to get to the root of the problem. I didn't wait long to be soon & felt very at ease. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a primary care provider.
It was great! Always like the explain over my illness and why this or that. Great communication. Take the time to talk over anything else besides why I’m there while I’m there.
Tara always takes the time to hear your concerns and she always has a smile for you!
My visit at Lakewood Family Health was very comfortable. This was my first time meeting Tara Cavazos and her staff. They were very friendly and knowledgeable. They were recommended by a relative and I would recommend them to any of my friends and/or family.
Quick first time patient processing. Limited wait. Wonderful bedside manner. Appreciated the nice balance of professionalism while still maintaining a casual atmosphere. Overall a great experience. Only downside was an insurance issue and the rude awakening of the cost sharing/deductible of a new insurance plan that doesn't cover basic visits and labs in full. Not used to paying anything but a co-pay for check-ups and labs.
Absolutely love Tara!! Very professional and makes you feel so comfortable - highly recommend.
I was looking for a new doctor having relocated to the area. I have never had someone brand new make me feel more welcomed and listen from beginning to end! And a fellow Alumni of UT Arlington! Best nurses in the state of Texas!
My appointment at Lakewood Family Medicine was fantastic. Super friendly staff at checkin and only a 5-10 minute wait once I arrived. Both the nurse and Dr. Cavazos were so friendly and didn’t make the appointment awkward or uncomfortable (as we woman’s appointments can sometimes be!) at all. They were super easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend Dr. Cavazos to my friends and family.
Wonderful experience! Tara listens attentively and is very thorough. I highly recommend!
Truly grateful I found a doctor like Tara in the Dallas area- she makes me feel so confortable and at ease and is very knowledgeable but to the point. Love her AND the nurses here! Have referred many loved ones to her.
so sweet. great first time.
She's the best and so nice and sweet. The wait isn't long and she really knows what she's talking about. Any problems with my daughter she has an answer. LOVEEEEE HER.
Amazing staff, SUPER kind and wonderful with my kiddos. Couldn't recommend more highly!!!
Tara is the best Doctor I have had. She is so kind, patient and I’m always seen as soon as I walk in. I recommend her to all of my friends. I love that she is extremely knowledgeable on all topics and you can discuss any issues with her.
Tara is great, as always!
Great bedside manner; very professional and kind.
Very knowledgeable and helpful!
My visit with NP Cavazos was amazing. She talked me through every step of the appointment and talked about myself and my family. She was super personable and she made me feel very comfortable. The office is super clean and the staff is really friendly!
Tara and the woman working with her were both fantastic! They were personable and made me feel comfortable throughout the appointment. They were very thorough and took their time with me.
I have anxiety about the doctor and was really upfront about it from the start. The staff was understanding and helpful the whole time. I had a few tests done and a general check up in about an hour, including wait time.
the very best care!!
I just came in pretty sick and extremely dehydrated. Thankful for Tara and her team nursing me back to life! They actually care for you here :)
She is kind, attentive, and very knowledgeable! I would refer anyone to her!
Tara was very professional and informative.
Very nice, she made me feel really comfortable and found the cheapest place for me to get my prescription.
She is great, she was very personable and attentive to everything I had to say. She made her suggestions and personally set up appointments the same day for other tests I needed done so I could get them out of the way on the day off I had. I also got a call from her the next day with the results that she had received. I will be continuing with her!
I have never felt so cared for by a primary care provider than with Tara Cavazos. She has such a warm and caring nature, is easy to speak with and truly listens. I've never felt rushed through an appointment. Lastly, her follow up is one of a kind! Thank you, Tara!
She’s amazing. I absolutely love her.

Love Tara and this practice!
She is a wonderful practitioner to see! She cares for us so well and is great about details.
She was very pleasant and gave clear time limits on when I will get test results. Wait time was about 10 minutes. Her nursing staff was also very nice about my fear of needles.
She was thorough and kind both times I've seen her. It's obvious she cares about her patients by how concerned she is with making sure to find cost effective options. My first appointment was a same day appointment as a new patient which is unheard of... I can't say enough good things about this practice!
Tara is absolutely everything you could ask for in a medical professional. She took the time to get to know me, my family history, and listened to my current health issues. I didn't feel rushed. I love that she took the time to explain everything to me, and discuss our options. She is brilliant!
Very attentive. Listened to my concerns and discusses her plan with me and made sure I understood. I have finally found a dr that I like and will continue to use.
Tara is the best doctor I have ever worked with. She truly cares, is very thorough and ensures that everything that needs to be done gets done. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a new doctor!

Every Visit Is A 100% Success Had Her For Some Months Now I Have Gotten So Much Better Thanks To Miss Tara.
Tara is fabulous! She listened to all my concerns. Interacted well with my baby who is ill and my 3yo who was tagging along. Great bedside manner. She suspected what was wrong with my baby and began to treat it like so. Got a call about the swab results, by her that evening, after hours, and her suspicions were confirmed. Was sent home with a nebulizer and meds. I went ahead and transferred my baby's medical records from our previous pediatrician. I'm willing to drive my 25 minutes to get there as opposed to the 5-10 minute drive to our previous pediatrician! Love the staff too!
Great as always!! In and out in less than 20 minutes. Always quick with this office!
This is only my initial meeting with Tara...but right off the bat I liked her. She was very personable. She not only wanted to know about my health concerns, but also about me in general. She took her time with my exam, answered all my questions, and really listened intently to my concerns. The office was nice and clean. Wait time was short. She made sure to choose a lab/prescriptions that worked with my insurance. All around I was pleased and am looking forward to having her apart of my health team.
It was very nice to be able to schedule an appointment entirely online. Everyone was very friendly.
She was very nice. Love my experience. The front desk girls were very helpful and very lovely. I will be visiting again with no doubt.
Always love coming to this office. Friendly doctors, nurses and receptionists and I am always in and out in 20 minutes! Can't get much better than that.
Tara was fantastic! Not only did she put me at ease, but she was very thorough and attentive throughout the entire visit. It was easy to book a follow-up visit a few days later, and she contacted me directly regarding tests that had to be completed. I have already been back to see her again and I highly recommend her to anyone!
Be sure to bring your insurance card
Tara and staff were EXCELLENT! 1st time visiting and will return!
My visit was very productive. I was greeted by friendly staff both front and back. I wasn't waiting long to be seen once I got all my vitals taken. I was seen by one NP first and she was very informative, once I got seen by FNP Tara she made the final diagnosis and I feel she went the extra mile to help make me feel better. I will be going back for sure!
Tara was extremely caring, professional, and thorough. I was incredibly impressed and more importantly, given an excellent diagnosis and treatment plan. I'm already feeling the benefits of the treatment and look to go back to work earlier than anticipated. Very grateful.
She was very great and the wait time was not long at all good service and good conversation very helpful I would recommend to anybody she is #1 In my opinion.
