  • I Love My Doctors
    One day my husband wanted me to try on a dress and I kept arguing with him that there was no way I could squeeze into it. I finally gave in because he was so persistent, and the dress was too big. Yea!!! I love my doctors, Dr. Cavazos and Dr. Anz-Cavazos. They are very personable. I appreciate that yearly checkups are a requirement. I appreciate the vitamin program. The staff are always friendly. -Ethel E. 6/18/16
