Dr. Kavanaugh is and has been treating me for my heart disease for just about fifteen years and when I first met with Dr. Kavanaugh I was a serious candidate for heart failure. After working with me to diagnose and treat my condition, I am now on a once a year checkup. With proper treatment and the right medication I feel Dr. Kavanaugh has given me a chance to live a much longer life than I had expected. Dr. Kavanaugh is a Cardiologist that cares.

I greatly appreciate the professionalism and candor of Dr. Kavanaugh. He was NOT condescending and very kindly answered all of my questions and concerns. He was recommended to me by several medical professionals in the area and I am extremely grateful to them. My only suggestion is that Dr. Kavanaugh immediately clone himself into four other selves. There is not enough of him to go around. I hate giving him high marks because I truly do not want to share him with other patients. He's the best!

I have enjoyed the experience of being Dr K2's patient from the moment I entered the surgery room on the gurney to my first visit as an outpatient to his office. He was friendly, reassuring, spent time explaining what he was about to do and then what he had done; dispensed a lot of good advice in a friendly manner. During my first follow-up visit as an outpatient he spent considerable amount of time explaining the possible outcomes that existed at this stage following the surgery. 5*!
