How was your experience with the doctor?I had the best experience with Dr. Cavalli! She's extremely pleasant, thorough and I can sense that she cares about each of her patients. At the close of every appointment she brings you into her office go over every detail about your health. She also allows time to ask as many questions as you want. This was the first time I've ever had a doctor allocate so much at an appointment. I recommend her to all my friends!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Cavalli was amazing! It was my first gynecologist visit and she did everything she could to make me feel comfortable, explained everything she was doing and why. She took time to hear what I had to say and to give me advice.

How was your experience with the doctor?While the wait was a bit long, which happens towards the end of the day, for the care and service I recieved, I'd have waited exponentially longer. Dr. Cavalli was phenomenal - and that's coming from someone that is not comfortable with doctors. She was very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and provided just about the best ob-gyn experience one could imagine.

How was your experience with the doctor?This is my first time writing feedback on Zocdoc because this is really the best doctor visit I've ever had!! I was there for the annual pap smear test and GYN exam. Honestly I was a bit nervous at first since it was my first time doing GYN exam/pap smear in the US. But Dr. Cavalli quickly dispelled all my misgivings with her smile and great patience. During the exam she explained every step to me and she was so gentle that I barely felt anything. The whole process was within 1 minute. She is professional, caring, knowledgeable, efficient, and very patient. One couldn’t ask for more. Plus the office is super clean and everyone there is very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Cavalli and will definitely go back in the future!

How was your experience with the doctor?I moved from Denver to NYC in the Spring and had gone to my previous gynecologist for 6 years, so was nervous about finding a doctor who I liked here. Dr. Cavalli and her staff could not have been more welcoming and made me feel extremely comfortable. Was such a great experience!

How was your experience with the doctor?I waited about 40 minutes after my appointment time before being seen. The receptionist and assistant are so rude. They are the reason I will not be returning. They blatantly talked badly of me in front of my face, very aggressive and unprofessional. Dr. Cavalli was just ok. She was definitely trying to upsell me on everything possible. Also, just FYI, they don't take credit cards.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Cavalli is one of the few remaining good doctors. She is so thorough, knowledgeable and really makes you feel comfortable. She doesn’t rush through like other doctors and if she’s running late it’s because she’s talking with her patients.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr, Cavalli is excellent: she is smart, compassionate and she gets straight to the point. She dispenses the appropriate amount of information needed to be informative but never alarming. I feel free to discuss even the most intimate matters with her without embarrassment. Her staff is as excellent as the Doctor...they are warm, efficient and helpful in every possible way. Five stars!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Cavalli was the most informative and caring doctor I've ever met. She was so kind and understanding during my visit. Gave me so info that none of my doctors have ever even mentioned before. She was kind enough to personally call another doctor to help me make an appt and also called my pharmacy to send my prescriptions. Not to mention all of the staff in her office was so personable and helpful!! Such a great visit. Im thankful!

How was your experience with the doctor?She and her staff were super attentive, friendly, and made me feel comfortable. I went in for a yearly checkup and Pap smear and she was very gentle and so barely felt anything. Then she followed it up with a short chat to talk about my overall health. Overall I left feeling like I was taken care of and supported and I’m grateful to have finally found a good gynecologist. I will definitely be going back.

How was your experience with the doctor?Loved my visit with Dr. Cavalli - she is amazing, takes the time to connect with you, really cares about her patients. Her personal attention exceeds anything I've gotten from my Drs in the past. What I was first turned off by in the office was more than made up for by my actual care by Dr. Cavalli. (I should say that when I first got there, I was a bit turned off by the space itself - seeming a bit old-fashioned, out of touch almost, and by the fact that they provided written notice that they don't use email or any kind of patient portal. I'm used to a high-end womens care provider with a patient portal where I can look up all of my old test results and Rxs, request appts, etc.) However, like I said, Dr Cavalli's personal attention is 5 stars +.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Cavalli is a REAL doctor. She was perfect! Dr. Cavalli is the type of doctor I always WANT to see but is so hard to find. By that I mean, she is not a young, couple years out of school doctor (or not real name for a doctor) who spends 5 minutes with you, has a fake smile and looks perfect because he/she is really trying to "sell" you some new expensive treatment or surgery. Or even worse you expect to see the doctor and get handed off to an assistant. Dr. Cavalli is an exceptionally knowledgeable professional in gynecology. With all of her vast experience she is able to answer any question you have on the spot. Her check-ups are extensive because she doesn't miss anything. If you don't know the important questions to ask during a visit, she will ask them for you. I felt like I was in the hands of a top, top, top gynecologist. She educated me and spoke to me in language I understood. She was honest and straight forward, while at the same time kind and empathetic. I have not kept up with my annual visits or my personal health in years. Dr. Cavalli is taking it upon herself to work with me and make sure that I get back on the right track. It is such a nice feeling when a doctor really cares about her patients. Dr. Cavalli is a phenomenal gynecologist and person. She is who I was looking for. She is what doctors should be and used to be but these days are truly rare. Thank you Dr. Cavalli. I'll see you soon!
