Dr Cavender was triple booked the day I saw him as a working in. I appreciated the opportunity to see him though he was so busy. I had been experiencing very high BP readings and needed to be seen.

Dr Cavendar, as usual was his upmost best. I trust him thoroughly with all matters concerning my heart and related conditions. Eventually, one day, I think my heart will be my undoing but none of this will be because of something Dr Cavendar has done. Lets face it I am getting old. In fact, I actually know more people dead than I do alive.
