“I am writing this FIVE STAR review with immense respect my family has for Dr. Cavanaugh. Dr. Cavanaugh has been the primary pediatrician of my son right from Day 1. It has been more than 10 years now and we can’t think of going to anyone else. My child is very comfortable with Dr. Cavanaugh. She is very knowledgeable, experienced and gentle with kids. What I like most is that she listens to kids and parents patiently. She suggests cost effective treatment options. She is on time and her staff is professional and co-operative. They have helped my family by going out of their way.”
