I found Dr. Kavanaugh to be incredibly fond of himself. With merely a 20 minute discussion and a simple 15 question survey, he decided he knew better than both the diagnosis of a licensed clinical social worker who had worked with my son for 6 months and the evaluation of a neuropsychologist who put him through hours of testing. Both sources recommended medication for my son, but Dr. Kavanaugh refused to prescribe them. If you are looking to help your child by applying a psychiatric strategy, avoid Dr. Kavanaugh. He readily admitted that he didn’t believe in medicating children. While I generally agree, when you have two other doctors more versed in psychological matters in children, you don’t take chances.
I love that Dr. Kavanaugh's office is right around the corner from my house! I was actually referred to one of his colleagues when my daughter was born but that doctor was completely booked so I happened to schedule with him. We could not have been happier! In fact, we referred him to our Brother and Sister-in-law for their newborn daughter! He's friendly and extremely professional and he actually takes his time to talk to us and answer all of our questions. There is literally not enough good things I can say about Dr. Kavanaugh and his employees!
