Dr. Kevin C. Cavanaugh, MD

Ear, Nose, and Throat | Male | 47 years old

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.Read more

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.

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.
