Dr. Cawley did a Decompression surgery on me in 2005 for Chiari Malformation. He did an excellent job. The scar looks great and I have felt wonderful since it was done. I highly recommend him.

Very intelligent. Has a great bed side manner. Very concerned about the level of care given by his staff. He literally saved my life. If he was not as intelligent as he is, I would have died. My condition was tricky,but he knew what was wrong and how to take care of me.
