  • Very Impressed with Service and Care
    What can I say - Dr. Cavazos is so cute and professional that I have referred several friends to this clinic. I was very impressed with the service and care you give so I just have to pass it along! One time I was driving home from work. I was in a red light and was tired. I put my arm on the steering wheel and with my other arm I began to rub it. I was so amazed of how I was able to feel muscles and noticed my shoulders and arms how thin they were. I haven't feel them like that in years!! -Bertha J. 5/29/16
