Dr. Kavanaugh was very knowledgeable and personable. He explained exactly what he thought might be going on and explained all my options and next steps. He is a wonderful provider and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a gastroenterologist. Everyone in the office was kind, efficient, and responsive.

I was extremely pleased with the care I received from Dr. Kavanaugh and the entire team. It is obvious they care about their patients and want to take the anxiety out of what could be an unpleasant procedure. This was my third time here and I enthusiastically give them my 5-Star endorsement.

This is the third procedure that Dr. Kavanaugh has done for me over the past eight years. I always felt that he was kind and caring; however, yesterday he was in a huge hurry, even though I was early for my appointment, and barely saw me. He said goodbye as soon as I woke up, and I was so groggy I did not even see him. The nurses, Amanda and Sam, were wonderful. So was the Nurse anesthetist, Greg. Maybe Dr. Kavanaugh was just having a bad day.

I travel 5 hours round trip to see Dr. Kavanaugh for my care. He is the most attentive provider on my care team. I'm a rare chronic illness patient with a complex chart but Dr. Kavanaugh never backs down from the challenges my case presents. I have never felt more supported by a provider (or medical office staff) before. His PA, Courtney Frerichs was also amazing and critical in diagnosing my issues, ordering testing and doing many telehealth appointments with me. Dr. Kavanaugh takes extra time to listen, thoroughly answer all your questions, explain procedures and risks and post-op care. He is also super funny, cracks jokes and has a great bedside manner, making a scary situation easier to get through. I've been a patient of Dr. Kavanaugh for 4 years and will continue to see only him as long as he is practicing. He is the most knowledgeable and experienced gastroenterologist in our area and 100% worth the travel time for the quality of care he provides.
