Patient Comments (1)
in Troutdale, VA |
I saw Dr. Cavros on a Monday and was scheduled as his first patient for surgery on the following Monday. Due to insurance approval and blood work having to be done prior to surgery and Medicine restrictions 72 hours prior to surgery. Very pleased and would recommend him to family and friends.
