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.

very thorough

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.

It was okay. Heart doctors, that is good heart doctors have a tremendous strain on their time and some time in order to get the best, you must wait.

Dr. Cavender and his team have always listened to me and addressed any questions I had. I have the utmost confidence in him. He always goes above and beyond what is expected of him as a physician! My husband and I, as well as my mother all use him and we all highly recommend him to anyone.
