Christopher J. Bailey, DPM, FACFAS:
I have known Dr. Kevin Gavin for approximately ten years now. I first met Dr. Gavin as a student rotating through an externship. I was immediately impressed at how the senior residents looked-up to him and respected him. Once I became a resident myself, I realized why. Dr. Gavin was one of the most influential teaching physicians I encountered during my residency. As a resident, you gain much of your didactic knowledge through a text book or a medical journal, but you gain all of your practical knowledge from your attending physicians. As one of my attending physicians, Dr. Gavin taught me many of vital skills I still use in practice today.
I am writing a recommendation for Dr. Gavin because I believe he is an excellent doctor. As I stated above, he is well-respected by his residents as a teacher. To be a good teacher, you have to know the material you are teaching inside and out, and he does. Knowing the material is only part of being a great doctor. You also have to have the skills to execute the medical treatments you are recommending for your patients’. As surgeons, we call this having “good hands”. I have scrubbed many cases with Dr. Gavin and I can assure you he has excellent hands. Finally, to be a great doctor you need to have strong moral and ethical standards, and Dr. Gavin certainly does. I would feel completely comfortable sending one of my family members to see Dr. Gavin and that is probably the strongest endorsement I can give.
I would recommend Dr. Kevin Gavin without reservation. He is a knowledgeable and skilled surgeon who demonstrates strong moral and ethical standards. As a patient, you can feel comfortable with his recommendations and his ability to deliver on his word.
