Patient Comments (6)
I really like Dr Kivitis. He was understanding. Just wish I could still see him. I lost my insurance and had to go on UPMC for you mawd plan through the state an can no longer see him He is very good at what he does. I have recommended him to some of my friends. I am now diagnosed with sjorgens and don't know who to see now.

He seemed very dismissive. I left feeling like I wasted my time and money.

Dr Kivitz took his time explaining my condition and was very thorough following through with further testing. I would highly recommend his services.
in Altoona PA |
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 on. The only thing they do fast is take your money. If you love your family go somewhere else. Wish I had would of saved $256.

Doesn't spend any time with you at all. Expect to spend hours in waiting room. Was unable to diagnose me or explain condition once diagnosed, both were given by a PA upon request. Doesn't explain or listen well at all.
in Huntingdon, PA |
be prepared to spend at least 3-4 hours here. Called for an appointment due to pain and no was told there were no appointments available until April which is a 3 month wait. Having been a prior patient, over the last 16 years. I have never had a good experience here. Due to the area we live in, it is take it or leave it as they are the only dr's who treat my condition. Guess I will remain in pain!
