She has made me a happy, and healthy, and dryer woman. Much love
in Brooklyn, NY |
I highly recommend Dr. Kavaler, a female urologist who specializes in women's urological problems. I was totally comfortable with every aspect of the visit and was given simple, straightforward advice for dealing with my problem. And it worked!
in New York, NY |
I found Dr Kavler to be patient, understanding, a good listener and concerned with your issues. She prescribed medication that she believed would work but made it clear she wanted to hear from you if it did not. I would certainly recommend her.
in Cornwall, NY |
She is thoughtful and precise. This is reflected in each step of the patient journey. The office staff manage patients efficiently. The IOS tablet sign in prompts you through the information process. The office is situated with a view west of Radio City, east St. Pat's, and directly in front: 30 Rock. Nice! The waiting room, bathroom, and patient rooms are white, beautifully ergonomic, sparkling. Finally, she, post-exam, gives time to discuss and then advises as a partner. Medicine UX =A+

Took my 97 yr old mom to a urologist for the first time upon Rec from her cardiologist. I registered mom on an iPad. Even the meds were listed when I provided pharmacy phone number. Very high tech. Office had low reclining examination chair easy for mom to transfer from her wheelchair. Dr Kavaler was kind, attentive and spent time explaining. options. Highly recommend her. She's even published a book.
in Haverstraw, NY |
She is lovely,very pleasant, concise and direct. Beautiful, immaculate office. Staff very cheerful and pleasant. I will be following up with her again.
in Staten Island, NY |
Dr. Kavaler is one of the most understanding and compassionate doctors I have ever crossed paths with. Her positive and patient attitude towards one's problem(s) puts any person at ease. Having multiple surgeries to fix one issue, she was always very encouraging and never let me give up hope. She went way above and beyond to help me with any issue. She always provided answers in terms that are understandable and never made you feel rushed to finish the visit. Priceless bedside manner.
