Dr Gavin does an excellent job in providing care. The office staff can use some training, they never return calls, or send followup k chart info.

The Dr. was great for my appointment. I liked him a lot. However the scheduling coordinator and the MA really messed up my scheduling for the procedure I am going to have. Because of this I am going somewhere else to get it done which makes me upset because I liked the Dr. a lot and trusted him.

This was my first meeting with the Doctor, it was for a brief evaluation/exam prior to the upcoming procedure. He was very likable and professional, put me at ease right away. He was quite concerned that I was aware of all the risks factors and that I was comfortable with moving forward with the procedure in a few weeks. I would definately recommend him to anyone I know that may need to see a Urologist.

I was in and out before my actual scheduled appointment, so things move along well. But I do not feel I was rushed. Very prompt but comprehensive.

Dr.Gavin was the best doctor I've ever seen. he was so thorough and ordered the necessary tests for my condition. He showed me he really cared about my health. I've seen many urologists in my life and he was definitely the best provider.

The exam was fine....The problem is with the ancillary services...from making an appointment to checking into the exam area.

05/13/2019
such a caring and good doctor

05/12/2019
As difficult as the procedure was, the dr. & nurse both tried their best to make the use of a catheter as medically pleasant as possible.
80

05/09/2019
I feel that he was quite knowledgeable, in general. I'm not completely sure that I understood my medical issue. Not his fault, really, u was likely too confused to ask the right questionsI'm pretty sure that getting immediate help from Kadlec Urology would not be a possibility.
90

05/08/2019
he was a great provider
100

05/01/2019
He removed my right kidney just less than a year ago because it was in grade three, stage three of renal cell carcinoma. The visit was a followup to assure all is well by scheduling a CT scan and tests. I am alive because of his concern and actions, it is hard not to love him for that, so I may be a wee bit biased when it comes to him.

100

04/23/2019
Dr Gavin is absolutely the very best and hope he is stays. He makes his patients feel at ease especially because his procedure is in a very sensitive area. We will be very lost IF he should leave. He needs a raise in pay - he is worth it.

At the present time, Dr. Gavin is the only urologist in the Kadlec system; be patient and your patience will be rewarded. It's my understanding that a new urologist will be coming on board in September. My experience was very good.

Dr. Gavin seems to be a great doctor....Ive only seen him once so time will tell but I'd be shocked if my first impressions weren't accurate....very personable and easy to talk to.

He said my urine test looked fine. I didn't have a urine test. Six weeks before my visit I had given them the names of my two previous urology doctors so the could get my surgery and other information regarding my prostate. They didn't have the information. He seemed to be rushed. [...]

10/09/2018
The office visit was promising, but the actual surgical procedure, explanation of what he actually did versus what he said he was going to do during the office visit, follow-up after the procedure, bedside manner, and his OUTRIGHT REFUSAL to return my phone calls or have a nurse call me to answer questions about concerns, extreme pain, and complications I was having right after the procedure were ABOMINABLE and OUTRAGEOUS. I called twice asking to know what he did to me when I was under because the paperwork had two different sets of surgical instructions - one we discussed at the office visit and another that was completely different - and was REFUSED any type of call back from ANYONE and told flat out I would have to wait 6 weeks until my follow-up appointment to find that out! OUTRAGEOUS! So I had to request my own medical records from the hospital to see what this "doctor" actually did to me, how it went, what he found/any anomalies, etc. Following up with a patient right after surgery with that information is standard procedure, let alone with a patient who is having extreme pain, fevers, and who removed a stent on her own because it was all so bad and the "doctor" couldn't be bothered to call back! The nurse just kept repeating, "The doctor will tell you all about it when you see him in 6 weeks." DESPICABLE.
