Dr. Cavey is a good listener and compassionate. He answers all questions. He is very cheerful and I call him Dr.Smiley and he is very calm

Had an initial appointment to discuss radiation treatment for Stage 1 breast cancer. Dr. Cavey was not open to discussing latest discoveries from science in how cancer develops and is treated. In fact, he seemed to be trying very hard to not show his anger at my questioning traditional treatment. Didn't even sit down during the appointment. I am looking for an alternative oncologist.

My experience has been less than expected. Almost a complete lack of communication from him, and a matter of fact response or no response to the most sensitive questions. Cavey's inability to articulate in a timely fashion has been a source of consternation for me from the initial referred visit. Without hesitation, I would not recommend he or his practice to anyone seeking relevant cancer treatment.
Ft Worth, TX |
Poor communication. In fact very little communication at all. Did not explain any of the risks involved in receiving radiation, especially to left side (I had a mastectomy on left side). Just told me I had to have radiation and the number of treatments I would have. Cold; very little compassion or empathy. Would NOT recommend.
