How likely are you to recommend Dr. Cavender?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Cavender is an excellent doctor. Very caring in his manner of talking and examining me. I have never had a better cardiologist! He really had my confidence by the way he handled my examination. Very kind spoken and he showed a sincere interest in my condition and problems. He found things wrong with my health that had been neglected by other cardiologists in the past. This is one good doctor! I would want to see him every time I need a cardiologist, but unfortunately I live in WV.
