Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cavanaugh "I have been in practice in Boulder County since 2002. As my practice has grown, I have been seeing more and more patients from this area. Thus, I have decided to open up an office to better serve the patients that live in this area. I can usually see patients myself within a week. If it is an urgent matter, I can usually see them sooner. I grew up in Longmont and went to high school in Denver. I commuted through the Broomfield/Lafayette/Louisville area during high school, and I have seen it change tremendously in my lifetime. I completed medical school and did my otolaryngology residency at Loyola-Chicago. Then, I completed a one year fellowship in facial plastics through the University of Texas-Houston. I have been in solo practice since 2001. My patient population has covered all ages. I truly have enjoyed practicing in the place where I grew up."

I have suffered positional vertigo for as long as I can remember. At the age of 63, I cannot remember the last time I could lie flat on the floor without my head being elevated. Their treatment for my vertigo has produced positive results.

He is aggressive and dismissive. Pain exists to him on a scale of 1–10 and that’s it. He wants a number and no explanation. He doesn’t care what you’re feeling. I’ve never felt so triggered by a physician and he should not be a clinician interacting with patients. Why do these people want to be...more
