It was top notch! Professional, caring, succinct and spot on with her treatment. Loved the feminine touch with fresh flowers in the outer office. Often you will find stark urology offices with urine droppings near the toilet. This one was clean and even had a ledge for your pocketbook. Kudos to her lovely receptionist who scheduled a prompt appointment for me despite wrong care and indifference in another practice. I will recommend her to everyone.

I’ve been treated by Dr Kavaler on 3 separate occasions and each time I was impressed as to how she grasped my complicated medical history and then treated me for my current issues with compassion, respect and top notch medical care which included doing sonograms right in her office. This is a big deal!! Also her office is clean, modern, well run. Her efficient staff showed compassion when I called in pain and frustration. They managed to “fit me in” and I saw Dr K the next day. Im treated by many docs and I can say I’m totally amazed by Dr K and I feel safe having her on my medical team!

Dr. Kavaler is a great listener. She makes sure that all your problems are covered. Then she proposes her solution(s). When she has to go hands on, she takes care of everything herself. She is very thorough, and gives you all the information she knows, without waiting for your questions. I highly recommend Dr. Kavaler.

Possibly one of the worst experiences I’ve had with a doctor. Came to her due to the great reviews ( not sure how she got these considering her attitude towards patients), was extremely disappointed and insulted by this doctor. After years of misdiagnosis, Dr. Kavaler continued to misdiagnose me, ignore my pain, and attempted to force me into a procedure that I was uncomfortable with ( not even indicated based on my true diagnosis). I was already hopeless to find help from a doctor, and she continued to minimize my situation and pain. This doctor is only out for your money, and if you are uncomfortable with something, becomes aggressive and agitated with you. She would forget telehealth appointments with me, forget who I was as a patient, forget prior dates and interventions that she had already done. Put me through tests that were contra indicated for my diagnosis, completely ignored the fact that I was in excruciating pain. Do yourself a favor and find another doctor.

I needed to see Dr. Kavaler right away. No problem! I received an immediate appointment and once in the office was taken care of by the most professional, caring staff imaginable. And, then there's Dr. Kavaler -- calm, pleasant, warm -- a best-ever physician! I am so grateful to her, not only for her expertise in my particular problem area, but for being a great listener and a kind human being. Five stars aren't enough!
