in Indianapolis, IN |
After getting a lucky break and getting in only two weeks after i called considering shes booked out until july i was thrilled but that quickly chanhed. I spent most of my time during the visit doing what felt like defending myself and why I was there. She made me feel like she was very confused why I was sent to her. Informed me my doctor didn't read my test results correctly. And Shebasically told me nothing was wrong and told me to see a dermatologist and left the room. Never again.

Dr. Cavaghan is a thorough doctor who sincerely cares for her patients Don't think for a minute she'll let you slide if you're not taking your meds as directed, this is for your health! I only wish I had switched to her a long time ago

She is one of the best doctors ives ever had. She can be tough if you are not taking care of yourself, but only because she cares about her patients. I have been with her for 10+ years. She always responds timely when I send messages through myiuhealth.
