excellent experience

April 23, 2018

I really like Dr. Cavaconte, but I understand that he will not be taking care of me because he is moving. I dont't like choosing a new cardiologist.

100% - the best

April 09, 2018

The doctor was very thorough in explaining what he wanted to further look in to so he made it easy for me to understand what steps I would be going through for a thorough evaluation.

March 19, 2018

My appointment time was 12:30 pm. I was brought into the exam room, seen by a nurse who did a preliminary screening, and also seen by the fellow by 1 pm. I was then left in the exam room for 45 minutes until Dr. Cavalcante and his fellow came in to see me. He was apologetic and stated he had to drive in from Shadyside.

February 19, 2018

I am very pleased with my Dr. and his staff. A+.

January 22, 2018

My appointment was on time and and well executed. Dr Cavalcante took his time and explained in detail any questions we had and explained in detail the questions he asked me.
