Ratings for Dr. Christopher B. Cave
Dr. Cave has been my supervising physician for over 7 years. There have been some changes in PA's at the practice, but the care has not dropped at all. Yes there is a wait. I will admit the 45 min behind sign is dis heartening when it has been there for a while now. However, just like a fine meal at a fancy restaurant, I wait because it is the best. Dr. Cave and his staff are outstanding at care and professionalism. They go out of their way all the time for EVERYONE. Dr. Cave is driven by professionalism, not profit margin. I am glad he is here, I am glad he is my Dr. and I am glad that my family has a physician that treats the problem, not just push pills on you. If you don't have a doctor. You should consider Dr. Cave, his is one in a million.
Dr. Cave and his office improperly billed my insurance for an appointment causing excessive grief to resolve. I attempted to rectify this with him, but unfortunately he would not take the time with me. Be careful before you proceed with his services, make sure you know exactly what he is billing you for. His competency as a medical doctor is adequate, however his directions / instructions can be confusing, and his staff is unfriendly, which is unfortunate when one is seeking help.
I was very pleased with Dr. Cave's professionalism, having been referred to him by several people. He was very thorough, and I am happy to have found a great doctor close to home. I have also heard wonderful things about his nurse practitioners, so wouldn't hesitate accepting an appointment with one of them at next year's check-up. The only negative comment I have is that Dr. Cave was running one and a half hours late that morning - definitely inconvenient for me, but I understand that doctors do have emergencies to attend to.
I have been with Dr. Cave since 2003. My boyfrined, son, mother(from out of state), best friend and her son have all taken my recommendation to see him and have been satified with services rendered.Dr. Cave is very thourough and explains things to the degree in which you care to be informed. I have always felt like he listens to me. God help me if he ever decides to quit practicing!! The best doctor I have ever been to. he even saw my mother, who resides in Illinois, when she hurt her back while visiting me in Florida.My boyfriend, who could not believe that "this guy can bo so great" has even established services with dr. Cave and is now HIS PCP as well; my bf will also rave about Dr. Cave now that he has actually become one of his patients! Can't say enough positive things about dr. Cave-obviously, I referred evryone close to me to him, so that should speak for itself! He is absolutely the best in his field!
Dr.Cave is a very smart doctor. I found that he spent a good amount of time in my visits over the years. There has been a change in the quality of care since there have been problems within the practice. His partner left and he has been overloaded with patients. I honestly feel sorry for him. He is going to make a mistake due to exhaustion. He only works half days on Friday and it is very frustrating when you have been a good patient for years and are told he has no appointment for 2 weeks. I have had numerous problems since I was told to go to Urgent Care or the ER. Thankfully he has started taking after hours call for his patients. He knows his stuff and is very kind one on one. His office needs competent staff. Terrible nurse. I love, love his PA Jennifer Bisson! Great asset to the clinic. I pray he gets his act together and patients get better care because he really is a "good" doctor.
Dr. Cave is one of the best doctors I have ever had the pleasure to take my care in his hands. I went through 3 doctors that were just passing out pain pills for my back when he went the extra length to find out why it was in pain and did, a simple gaul stone. He may not be the best doctor out there, but most definetlly the man who will go the miles it takes to make sure you have been healed. I can talk to him about anything and he listens. No matter how far I live I will travel miles to visit him reguarly...!
Dr. Cave is always working and applying the best level of skills to his expertise. As a father of like four or five children the amount of time he spends with his patients I'd have to say is exceptional! I never feel rushed and I always feel like I am the only person he is worried about when I am in his office/care. He is a Highly intelligent person unlike many doctors I've used in the past; Dr. Cave is exceptional as a Doctor!
I have never dealt with a doctor's office that is SO hard to get any action out of. I have been in need of medications for over two weeks and they have yet to call it in, even though they told me it would be called in a month ago. I have found it extremely difficult to even get a call back for the numerous voice mails I have left. When I do get a person, they "can't help me because the doctor is out of the office." This is one doctor that keeps "banker's" hours. Go to someone else that actually shows up for work once in awhile! When you need a doctor, you want to know SOMEONE will be there to help you.
AWESOME IS THE ONLY WORD TO DESCRIBE DR. CAVE. He is extremely well informed and understands medications, side effects and the best combination to get the result you want. He has a great efficient staff and a clean, beautiful facility. Highly recommended!!
