Dr. Pavone is knowledgeable, she performed a procedure for me in February of this year. While I appreciate her knowledge in her area, I do not agree with her bedside manner. My experience with Dr Pavone after two in office visits was somewhat cold and abrupt.

Dr Pavone is a straightforward no nonsense doctor! It is hard to read her at times but I do not feel like she is afraid of a challenge or at least she will not show it. After being under her care for quite sometime I know she is very busy. I feel confident with Dr Pavone help we can make the best decisions moving forward. If she is ever unavailable to provide me care I would recommend and pick Dr Jungheim.

Dr. Pavone is the best dr there is at the clinic. She is kind and compassionate. She goes the extra mile for me. She has been my longest dr at 5.5 yrs and has never left my side. I just wish she would let me do more retrievals as I will have to go to Mexico to do another retrieval. My gyb onc said there is no reason i cant do more retrievals and use estrogen for FET.
