What People Say About Dr. David Kauvar, MD
Reply
I recently went to Dr. Kauvar for the first time, and was very impressed with the care he provided. He demonstrated an excellent understanding of my issue and, combined with his friendly, engaging, and calm demeanor and "bedside manner," he was able to make a stressful situation much easier to manage. I will definitely recommend Dr. Kauvar to any family members or friends who are in need of gastroenterology services.
