in Babylon, NY |
Dr. Kavesteen is the worst doctor I have ever come across. It is obvious that he has no interest in addressing his patients concerns, only charging insurance for unwarranted tests and procedures. He was supposed to treat my husband for lymes disease, as he claims he specializes in, however, just had his staff run a bunch of unrelated tests.
Dear Katherine I can not discuss your husband's medical condition on the web due to HIPPA laws and patient - doctor confidentiality. I understand your frustration with your husband medical condition and Lyme disease. I will be more than happy to meet with you and explain his condition in great details if he allows me to. Many people feel frustrated with this devastating and dangerous disease. We are here to help you better understand and treat Lyme disease

Dr. Kavesteen is great. His demeanor puts you instantly at ease. He listens & asks questions. His office is equipped to do everything needed. I thought I was feeling a little under the weather, but instead had a 90% blockage. I'm here today, & feeling great thanks to Dr. Kaversteen. I would recommend Dr. Kaversteen to anyone looking for a knowledgable & compassionate doctor. As for a rating I would say 5+. P.M. Gallant
It has been a great privilege to be involve in your medical care and giving us the opportunity not only to take care of your medical needs but also your other family members. We work very hard to have the most advanced technology to detect the disease early because we believe early detection and prevention is better. I am glad that we were able to detect this 90 percent blockage before it became 100 percent. I wish you healthy and happy years to come from me and Heart and Health Medical staff.
in Brentwood, NY |
I took my mom to this doctor for her Aorta calcification, he not once explains anything & does over 15 tests (abt 5 visits in total) & the last visit we're told no more tests & he was going to give us the 24 hour monitor test results, instead he walks in & states her BP is stable & he sent meds to the pharm. & pushes us out. I had to ask hello results? & he goes oh yeah here its elevated & we don't know why. come back for a brain exam? went to another doc. turns out he did tests she didn't need!
in Patchogue, NY |
In June Dr. Kavesteen changed my blood pressure medication due to swelling in my ankles. Over the next 10 weeks he increased dosages, changed the medications twice then prescribed 2 new medications that my insurance company would not cover. When the last medication was denied, I called and was told to make an another appointment. Honestly? I've seen the doctor 5 times over these 10 weeks. My blood pressure is high (higher now) and now I have to wait for another appointment? No thanks.
I am saddened to see more and more of my patients are being denied coverage for necessary medications, test and treatments. Medical care is now being dictated by medical insurances for simply increasing their profit margin and greed. A good and knowledgeable doctor will monitor these side effects. I am glad that I was able to detect and stop the first medication which was started by a different doctor. My first priority is my patients' safety and wellbeing. This takes time, dedication and care.

I met Dr. Kavesteen at a free heart and health screening in October of 2015. My BP was extremely high that day and after speaking with him I knew right away that I couldn't have a better person to be my Cardiologist! We saw each other weekly for 6 weeks and every time I went there I felt better and better not only physically but in my confidence and respect in him and the entire staff. Dr. Kavesteen is the best! You and your loved ones will be happy you chose him like we did!
At Heart and Health Medical, our goal is to treat everyone like a family and provide everyone with the best care possible. Comments like these means a lot to all of us. Thank You

Dr. Kavesteen is the most caring doctor I have ever dealt with. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a Dr that will go the extra care for his patients.nice human being also
in plainview, ny |
The office experience was ok but the doctor will not see you until he runs a host of unnecessary tests without taking into account your history and symptoms. The staff encourage you to take tests prior to medical evaluation and don't explain why they are being done. Dr. Kavesteen is a bad diagnostician and missed my heart problems that were caused by lyme disease. He does not know how to make a clinical diagnosis of lyme and does not know how to diagnose, treat or monitor lyme carditis.
Lyme disease is a serious condition. It effects whole body. First stage is the arthritis, muscle pain and flue like symptoms- Second stage is effecting the heart and last stage it will spread to the brain. In order to accurately diagnose and treat this devastating disease all these systems have to be evaluated. Cardiac myocarditis from lyme is a serious and fatal condition and should be given after biopsy with pathology report. I hope you were given a correct diagnosis and treatment.
in Dix hills Ny |
He is very knowledgeable and smart. He is not like other doctors that push medications and test. He really cares!
in New York, NY |
its some what nice to be afford at there for a half an hour.
We are very sorry for the long wait. At times we have emergencies and have to send our patients to the hospital by ambulance and this will delay and prolong waiting time. We appreciated the feed back and we always try to stay on schedule.

"As Physicians, our daily commitment to doing what's best for our patients is inspiring, honorable and challenging.

Our profession allows us to enter people's lives in moments of vulnerability, and trust is the main foundation for this relationship. Part of how we earn and maintain this trust is through the highest standards we as physicians collectively embrace throughout our training in medical school, residency and fellowships over a decade of hard work and sacrifice.  This is only achieved by complete dedication and love for our patients and medicine.

I salute every physician who puts their patient's well being first and follow his/her Hippocratic oat to the fullest.

Medicine is not only a science but it is also an art. We are all created uniquely with different DNA. Therefore, the same treatment plan may not present the same results all the time.

The first goal of our medical team is to evaluate each patient with the latest technology and diagnose the underlining disease. We take our findings and then educate our patients on their medical condition. We rather treat the underlining disease than the symptoms alone.   It is only then that  THE PATIENT should make the final informed decision regarding his/her health with complete medical support from us. "             Dr. David Kavesteen   September 19, 2005   Babylon, NY
