Excellent mohs surgeon! Highly recommended

Dr. Kauvar was recommended by my dermatologist to perform minor surgery. Was very satisfied and her staff is very professional.

I've been a patient of Dr. Kauvar's for over a year to treat my melasma with laser and am thrilled with the results. After 3 years of failed attempts of covering the dark marks on my face with makeup, I finally feel confident enough to skip foundation and concealer. An added bonus is that the staff are lovely and the office is as beautiful and relaxing as a spa.

She is terrific! She is very knowledgeable and is current on the latest dermatologic research and treatments and even teaches medical students. She is a kind person who really cares about her patients and tries to address their concerns. Her staff is well trained and very courteous. Her office is clean, comfortable and well run.

Warning, PLEASE DO NOT GO TO SEE DR. KAUVER IF YOU HAVE MELASMA. Dr. Kauver not only is rude and has zero empathy but she will throw procedures at you that you don't need and will make your skin look worse. I read Dr. Kauvar's study on Melasma and thought it was going to be my saving grace but sadly it was not. I went to her office in August, and for starters the woman working at the front desk is miserable. She is not kind and honestly very rude to patients. Dr. Kauver said I needed her specia
