What People Say About Dr. Mark Cavalenes, MD

Dr. Cavalenes has been my doctor since the '90's when I was first diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel. Fast forward to March 2017 when I FINALLY had the surgery because of a really bad flare up. At the time during my healing I thought it would never heal, but it did! My right hand is just like new again. Now fast forward to November 6, 2017 Dr. Cavalenes did surgery on my right knee for a torn meniscus. Its still painful on some days, but it's healing! I am EXTREMELY satisfied and confident in him!

Dr. Cavalenes is very knowledgable and made me feel comfortable and at ease with my condition. I wouldn't trust anyone else to operate on my right hand. He took a look and knew exactly what was wrong. Surgery went great and i am improving wonderfully!

Doctors office denied receiving my insurance company's (a company with which they have a contract) referral even though I offered them the date and number of the referral and had confirmed with them by phone weeks before that they had it. the office staff was rude and frankly, if I would never let someone who kept a staff like that operate on me. I have filed a grievance with both my insurance company and Medicare.
