Patient Reviews (1)
San Diego, CA |
Dr Kavanaugh is rude, disrespectful, arrogant and has a huge ego. He has no bedside manner, uses Fellows to do most of his work, and seems to believe that he can treat patients and staff however he pleases. This guy needs to retire, he has no business seeing patients. I have never had such a horrible experience with a physician in my life.
