Dr Kevin Gavin and his staff are OUTSTANDING! Great care is made to make sure your appointment time is honored. Everyone is very polite, cheerful and compassionate. Dr. Gavin studies all the latest developments in podiatry and has all the latest equipment. He goes out of way to make sure your concerns are met with the proper treatment. All insurance is accepted and charges for treatment are very reasonable. He is the BEST!

Dr. Gavin is the BEST podiatrist on this planet in my opinion. He has a wonderful bedside manner. His staff at his Algonquin & Woodstock locations also have a wonderful bedside manner. I had plantar fasciitis. I no longer have plantar fasciitis because of Dr. Gavin. His treatment (surgery) was a 100% success. I have custom orthotics from him. I wear them every day. I re-order as needed. They are PERFECT. Dr. Gavin is such a good podiatrist that I only recommend him to friends & family. A+

If you are tired of the typical doctors and their associated mumbo-jumbo - treat yourself to a refreshing departure from the "norm". From the staff who genuinely welcomes you and treats your appointment with respect all the way to a doctor who listens and explains treatment options in easy-to-understand terms - if it is old-fashioned caring that you seek - look no further than Dr Gavin. If there were a Hall-of-Fame for podiatry - Dr. Gavin's bust would be front and center.

North Chicago, IL |
Amazing care and spot on a tough diagnosis. Did not rush me into a surgical option and problem resolved with conservative care. Would recommend without hesitation!
in Lake in the Hills, IL |

in Tucson, AZ |
I was in the area on a vacation and had some issues with my left ankle. Old M/C wreck injury. I spoke with Dr Gavin and he knew exactly what needed to be done. His team were very thorough and I cannot say enough about the treatment i received. When Dr Gavin was done I was pain free for the first time in over 40 years. And my lack of range of motion, and the limp, as well as the morning pain just getting up and going, was all greatly improved and the pain was gone. Thanks Doc, awesome job.
