Dr. Kava is an amazing physician. He utilized a variety of tone sounds to check out what was going on in my ear and double-checked the results with a printout from a machine that records the sounds, wow! He also fit me in his tight schedule to see me ASAP. The staff was very friendly.

Dr. Kava is a compassionate doctor with an excellent bedside manner. He competently performed a minor surgical procedure. Would definitely recommend him.
in Rockport, ME |
I saw Dr. Kava years ago and he appeared to have a hard time understanding my dislike of numbing the inside of my mouth so he could take a small piece of skin for a biopsy. He completely ignored me when I told him not to use Novocain or any other numbing solutions. He started what I thought was taking the sample but was using Novocain against my wishes. I stopped him when I realized what he was doing and almost had to argue with him and put up my hand to make him stop after telling him twice.

Is it possible to do a zero? Rude, self-serving, no acknowledgement of family in the room with me for moral support, didn't address any of my concerns (via written symptoms of health issues I submitted upon appointment), interrupting me, and suggested I didn't want to know what he charges, being that one of my tests is apparently $1200.00. Lucky me - being I have no insurance at this time. Just WOW. P.S. the nurse/receptionist were lovely women.

Pretty quick exam, seemed predisposed for the diagnosis before even seeing me. Missed several visable symptoms that other doctors noticed.
