I've been going to Dr Cavallaro for over 10 years, she is by far one of the best Doctor's I've ever had the privilege to work with. She is kind, caring continous and always gives you the time you need to feel all your questions have been answered.

Wonderful bedside manner, soft spoken, but firm when she needs to be. I absolutely love her! My only regret is that she doesn't practice internal medicine as well since I've yet to find an internist that I love.
