Dr. Cavasos has followed up on things my primary could not, did not. I am the one privileged to have such a provider.
February 11, 2022
Dr C has the best bedside manner of any physician - much like Robin Rose from years back. Sunny disposition, efficient, and well informed. I do want to say that last year it took 3-4 months to get an appt from her office as a referral so that I could proceed with Dr [ ] for [service], though I appreciate covid and other delays over the past few years. But perhaps we need several additional Endocrinologists in So Oregon to ease the load. Though I will continue with Dr C, for she rocks!

Martha Cavazos is a gem. She connects with me about my general health issues in addition to the speciality area that she treats. She cares about my overall health, and my life. She is very well-informed, able to explain things in ways I understand but never talks down to me. She listens to my concerns, thoroughly reviews my chart and my prescriptions, and is very warm and reassuring. After my last visit one of my kids asked me how it went and I said "I'm still basking in her rays." Not only do I get outstanding, informed, caring medical treatment from her, I come away feeling heard, valued, and better about myself for having spent a little time with her.

As a person with multiple chronic medical conditions one and who sees several specialists regularly I can unequivocally say that Dr Cavazos is one of the best specialists I have ever encountered. She is very knowledgable in her field and of the medications and regimens associated with endocrinology. She communicates well and listens closely to my statements and answers all of my questions. She is cordial and every OV is rewarding and satisfying.
December 01, 2021
I think Dr. Cavazos is knowledgeable and detail oriented. Although I see her annually, she is well informed about my medical situation, spending time reviewing my history before we meet. After the appointment I often receive a my chart message from her with goals or ideas for the coming year. I value her big picture approach and long term thinking.
November 26, 2021

October 12, 2021
Hands down it was Dr. Cavazos, every time. Dr. Cavzos was incredibly knowledgeable, explained everything to me in ways that I could understand and showed a level of caring that i have NEVER experienced at any Dr.s office before. She answered all of my questions and even anticipated the ones I had forgotten. I honestly did not believe that this level of care and understanding still existed. Her listening skills are outstanding and as a result of this she is able to ask the hard questions and see the bigger picture. Thanks to Dr. Cavazos, for the first time in decades i feel like I have a real path toward healing. Asante is so blessed to have such an amazing Endocrinologist...please, please, PLEASE do everything you can to make sure she stays forever. Okay, i'll settle for 10 more years:)
October 11, 2021
I've gotten responses so quickly it's remarkable every time I've sent an email through the patient portal asking questions about various things concerning my health. It's so reassuring and informative to know I can ask without causing a problem, that we can work together as a team. Just something I am thankful for every day, because I know people in other areas of the country who do not have such knowledgeable doctors who are so accessible and open to the patient's ideas and suggestions, such as whether or not it was safe for me to travel, and helping me cancel my trip to GA during COVID because I am on an oral chemo and my immunity is low.
October 08, 2021
Dr Cavazos is superb - best bedside manner, knowledge, concern. Staff also very proficient.

September 23, 2021
To begin with, while sitting in the waiting room, I was truly impressed as I listened to the receptionist take calls. Her attention to detail, the way she framed questions to the patients, her obvious care and concern were superb.Dr. Cavazos gave me a full forty-five minutes of her undivided attention and is certainly concerned with me being the healthiest I can be, and the healthiest she can help me to be.The person who checked me out was kind and thorough and actually made notes on her computer as to the pronunciation of my name, to make sure she would get it right the next time.An excellent experience.

She is so caring, and so thorough, and she remembers me and my situation from year to year. I feel so much confidence moving forward addressing my health concerns with her by my side.Staff is helpful and courteous. When I had a health issue arise they did their best to move my regularly scheduled annual appointment to an earlier time, despite Dr. Cavazos' packed schedule. Dr. Cavazos and/or staff always get test results promptly entered into MY CHART, and follow up if necessary. Just the BEST care at this office!

I am lucky enough to see people who are always top-notch. I have always been very satisfied with the service I have received from everyone at Asante ... from Martha, who is truly unique and outstanding, to each of the people who have assisted her during my visits. I have stated this before: When Asante took over the Ashland Hospital, I had a serious concern about the great community feeling of the Hospital being destroyed by a large corporation! My concerns disappeared as soon as I saw Martha and she made it obvious that she was better than anyone I had seen before her! If you ever lose Martha, you will also lose me! Martha is the best!! :-)
August 05, 2021

First of all to those who put on their masks when first asked to do so and have continued that effort throughout and then followed up by getting the vaccine when it was available to them. This is a must to protect ourselves and others. For all those that rallied support for those who lost their homes in the Almeda fire. Helman school took on several families in Talent in addition to their own families for their snowflake program over the holiday. Ashland Soroptimist aided in this program. Our health care providers and first responders have gone above and beyond.

Dr. Cavazos is the best doctor I have ever had. Her knowledge is outstanding and she truly cares about her patients. She takes into account all family health history as well.

April 27, 2021
Having a doctor who not only can address my extremely rare medical situation but also how a globe pandemic is affecting my condition is almost unbelievable. She is such a sincere, understanding and intelligent person with a gentle heart. That combination is almost unheard of in the medical field especially among specialists like herself.
April 24, 2021
Dr. Cavazos' assistant - I don't remember his name. He was wonderfully warm and supportive.
April 24, 2021
Dr. Cavazos goes out of her way to help me feel welcome and well-cared-for.

April 03, 2021
Dr. Martha Carvazos and her medical assistant JamesThe computer or the computer operator that scheduled my appointment somehow erased my appointment while calling to confirm that same appointment! I always make two appointments at a time, three months apart. Anyway, Dr. C and James came in on Friday morning to make sure I was seen and helped. Granted, this was a second trip to Ashland from Medford, but I am so grateful to have a dedicated, knowledgeable, compassionate physician.
April 02, 2021
Dr Cavazos's office was well organized and the staff very friendly. This doctor and the information I receive, as well as the relaxed atmosphere of the office, is the only reason I go to Ashland.

Dr. Martha Cavazos is an amazing person. So smart, so caring. The most outstanding doctor I've ever had. My thyroid went south. My life collapsed. My GP [ ] thought it was my thyroid even though I lost all my hair. I found Dr. Cavazos on the internet. She took one look at my test results and nailed my problem.A year later, with her help, my hair returned, I slowly lost the extra weight I gained because of my thyroid, my energy level returned. I was back! Once a year I seeher. She gives my whole body an exam. She was the one who found my medications were messing with my liver. She discovered I was drinking too much waterand my electrolytes were critically low. I'm now limited to 2 liters a day. Only doctor I've ever been to that doesn't rush through her exam so she can get to thenext patient. She always makes me feel I'm the most important person at the moment and gives me total attention. Asante is darn lucky to have her. To me, sheis a Goddess
