Dr. Kavanagh is an extraordinary doctor, with tremendous empathy and devotion to her patients, combined with great skill and exceptional determination to solve patients’ problems in a creative, non-intrusive way, when possible.

Her creativity and devotion to me helped relieve years of worsening pain, caused by another doctor’s mistake. Early this year, she used an innovative technique and saved me the anguish of being immobile for three months and the difficult physical therapy required after a more traditional surgery. She cares about her patients in a unique way, to help fix what hurts so they can lead the lives they love. It is my great honor and privilege to know her.

I live in New Jersey, and I will drive to Westchester to see her, because of my devotion to her and complete confidence in her as a physician.
