We had a very positive experience with Dr. Cavin. My husband came to the hospital emergency at 10 p.m. with a sudden, severe pain in his abdomen, chest and shoulder.. Dr. Cavin was on call and calmly explained the type of surgery that would be necessary and all the side effects of the surgery. We felt confident in his ability. The surgery went well thanks to Dr. Cavin, and we are grateful for the kind treatment he showed us.

Dr. Cavin was the only doctor my brother had seen in over a year that correctly diagnosised his issues. Therefore we could move forward with an answer rather that questions. Linda got us in right away to see Dr. Cavin and he expertly told us what he suspected the problem was when no other doctor listened enough to correctly tell us what to do. I would recommend him to the world. Thank you.

I 1st met Dr Cavin in November of 2015 when I got Diverticulitis. I didn't have insurance at the time, but he helped me through it right up to the into surgery, when He found Colon Cancer. He preformed my surgery and worked with me all the way making me feel safe and secure. I have had a recent colonoscopy and it was clean. He is a great Doctor and cares about his patients... His staff is great & act as is they have known you forever. I will continue to see him for all of my colonoscopy

I first met Dr. Cavin when he performed emergency abdominal surgery on me. He was calm, collected, and conscientious. I was grateful he was conservative, as well as thorough, with my surgery. He was willing to explain the process of the surgery, the process of my recovery, and what he did and did not know regarding reasons for my surgery and my prognosis for the future. In all of my interactions with him, he was humble, caring, responsive, and respectful.

Dr. Ian R. Cavin came very highly recommended. Learning very recently that I had breast cancer, I was greatly relieved to know that Dr. Cavin was so highly thought of. My surgery was very successful and I am now recovering very well from it. Dr. Cavin is a very thorough and excellent surgeon and doctor. I have been very pleased with my care.
