It is unfortunate that when a patient complains of shortness of breath, no labs or x-rays are ordered, and no further questions addressing symptoms. This patient now has been diagnosed with metastatic lung cancer, when perhaps if complaints/symptoms were acknowledged when reported, this disease would not have progressed to this point. Perhaps the mass would not have been as large, lymph node involvement nonexistent, treatment only palliative, and shortness of breath and coughing so severe, activities of daily living unbearable. We do not want this to happen to another person, so if you choose to visit this provider, please make sure all your questions and concerns are addressed in a timely fashion.

She has patients with appointments waiting 2+ hours! Forgets to have meds called in or calls the wrong pharmacy.

As a new patient I feel extremely fortunate to have been given a rare opportunity to become one. Dr. Cavendar is not only compassionate, she is extremely thorough and brilliant. She practices and provides healthcare the way it was done many years ago-the best way! The wait is well worth it. I see why all of her patients have such great admiration for her and her staff.

Dr. Susan Cavendar Susan is one of the best Doctor's I have ever been to. I have been going to her for several years now. She truly has a compassion for the health care industry. In all the times I have been in her office, she has never came into the office and tried to rush me out like most Doctor's do.. She takes great pride in her patient's and really cares about them. This last year I could have died if she could have not got involved with the others Doctor's during that time. wonderful lady
