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.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Cavalcante and I found him to be one of best doctors I have ever encountered. He had an excellent personality and at the completion of my appointment, I felt very informed and understood the course of action of the next phase of treatment.

I brought my adult son to my appointment because I wanted him to have a complete understanding of my health issues. He participated in the questions and answers between myself and Dr. Cavalcante and asked questions of his own which Dr. Cavalcante graciously answered.
