I've known Dr. Kivitz for some time. He is extremely through with his knowledge. Use the staff for a lot of the premiliary exams and stuff because such a shortage of specialized care givers in the area. Have good insurance to cover the necessary testing

Dr Kivitz took his time explaining my condition and was very thorough following through with further testing. I would highly recommend his services.

Dr. Kivitz lied to my insurance company about asking me to be in a study. I was there 2 hrs extra because I was waiting for the lady from the other study(she wasn't told I was there she went to lunch). Lied about the blood tests being free. Very disorganized and chaotic nobody knows what's going...more
