I waited about 15 minutes to see the doctor. Once I was in the room Dr. Gavilanes was very nice, thorough, and took his time. He admitted that first visits usually take a little longer than usual. He has a good bedside manner. From a medical standpoint he is a knowledgeable pulmonary doctor and I felt very comfortable discussing my issues.

In all fairness I believe Dr. Gavilanes is fairly new in the field. He is very caring, friendly and makes you feel comfortable. I was supposed to take tests during my appt. and was not told not to take a certain medication. Had to come back another day to take them. Allie who administered the tests was terrific though. Dr. Should have called me back with a complete diagnosis but Allie called to tell me the doctor said I had moderate COPD. Don't know how I feel about that. Like him though
