Care Philosophy

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.

Patient Comments (10)

This office has poor customer service and is expensive when they actually attempt to fix problems. The initial visit charge is $150 for 10 minutes, but they will very quickly start double charging you for time to actually take care of the issue you went in for. I went for two visits, spent about 30 minutes of actual time with the doctor, and was ultimately billed for $390 myself, insurance was billed for around $600. That's $1200/hr for time with an ENT. Not a surgeon or a lawyer. An ENT.

I started seeing Dr. Cavanaugh in the fall of 2016 as I had been dealing with a sinus and throat issue for over a year. My situation was further complicated by the fact that I had just come off chemotherapy. Dr. Cavanaugh was the second ENT Doctor I saw as nothing I had tried previously was working. He was able to clear things up and after nearly 14 months of suffering with various issues I feel fantastic. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Dr.Cavanaugh was extremely personable and knowledgable! I really felt like he cared about my condition and his diagnosis and treatment brought a great amount of relief when I had been struggling for almost a year. I give Dr.Cavanaugh the highest recommendation!
in Westminster, CO |
When I met Dr. Cavanaugh I could barely breath through my nose, I had chronic sinusitis and nasal polyps, I was getting about 4 hours of sleep a night and was told by another ENT that Surgery was my only option. Dr. Cavanaugh listened, diagnosed and recommended alternatives to surgery, with his help I can now breathe normally, I get 8 hours of sleep per night and I have never felt better. I highly recommend Dr. Cavanaugh.

Dr. Cavanaugh helped me deal with multiple issues, from sleep apnea to teeth grinding to allergies. He even removed a small growth from my face when my dermatologist would not. I found him both direct and kind, as well as professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend him to family and friends for any ENT problems.

Had to visit due to a head injury. Whole time with Dr. Cavanaugh I felt I was being judged like he didn't believe what I've been experiencing. He knew what he was doing but he's not personable at all. Office staff was friendly and helpful though
in Longmont, CO |
After an ER visit I was admitted to the hospital for a very severe and recurring condition. The hospital staff could do nothing for me except for attempt to stop my episode only to have it start again within a few hours. Dr. Cavanaugh was reassuring in a very frightening time and was very available. The Dr. went far above and beyond what I have ever seen a specialist or primary care physician do for a patient by being reachable and continuing to offer solutions to my challenging condition.
New York, NY |
Really like this doc! I was in a lot of pain and am now nearly pain free. He is very knowledgeable and diagnosed my problem in minutes.
Would definitely go back and recommend to others. I had clogged ears and had already been to my GP but was still having problems. Home remedies weren't working either. Dr. Cavanaugh had fixed me up within 5 minutes!
in Denver, CO |
I'm paying a specialist co-pay for an ear, nose, and throat doctor, so I would expect that looking in my throat would not cost me an extra $301 beyond my co-pay. How else can an ear, nose, and throat doctor assess my throat? Also he speaks too quickly and is hard to understand, and he told me that he could only address one problem per visit (I thought they were related) and to choose one.
