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

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.

He is very knowledgeable and smart. He is not like other doctors that push medications and test. He really cares!

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.
