Wonderful Doctor

My son worked as a cardiac ICU nurse at Brookwood hospital for years and when I became unhappy with my cardiologist, I asked for his recommendation and without hesitation he said Dr. Cavender. I have been his patient ever since. He is a kind doctor that actually listens to all of my issues and offers his opinion in a way that is both easy to understand and informative. I am thankful that Dr. Cavender is my cardiologist and would recommend him to others.

This is one excellent doctor.

He showed a sincere interest in my health and was so kind in his examination of me. He checked me out very thoroughly and tried to find out what my problems were. Very understanding and patient and he gave me a complete explanation of everything he was doing. I have never had a doctor who seemed to care about my condition more than Dr. Cavender.

Cares and listens to me for getting me the best help

Dr. Cavender from day one has shown concern about symptoms I have had. He did the necessary test to diagnose. He was patient and never rushed at all. He found the problem and did the necessary procedure to fix the problem. I would recommend him for anyone
