Dr. Gavin is a good listener, communicates well with his patents and works in partnership with them.. My recent meniscus surgery was successful. Consider Dr. Gavin if you are looking for an orthopedic surgeon.
Hilton Head, SC |
Not Helpful, 1 hour+ waiting, rude PAs, talked negatively about me in the hall outside the room, complained of not caring and not caring to see me. PAs said they don't know why I was there they didn't want to come in the room. Very nasty people
