I've been seeing Dr. Cavaghan for 3 years and I've never had such a great provider. She is very thorough, attentive, listens to concerns and explains situations in detail. She has more than once advocated on my behalf with other providers, is lgbtq+ affirming and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her for any trans and non-binary people seeking an excellent HRT physician.

I have seen Dr Cavaghan for over 10 years. She is extremely knowledgeable and also very kind. She will be hard on you if you are not doing what you should be doing to treat your diabetes, but this is only because she cares.

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.
