I saw her yesterday and have already recommended her to a friend. After being treated by several urologists, I felt I'd found one I could trust implicitly. She is capable and careful. The wait was longer than I liked, but it was worth it.

Dr. Kavaler in incredibly warm and understanding, taking time to get to know her patients and provide the best advice. She and her staff have excellent technical acumen, performing tests and examinations quickly and efficiently. I was impressed I had a short wait time and though I had a series of tests performed (it was my first visit), each was well coordinated and timed so that my overall visit time was reduced. Very much appreciated. I highly recommend her.
