Patient Comments (3)
Dr. Krivitsky was highly recommended to me. I was recently diagnosed with a bad node and needed a pacemaker. Dr. Krivitsky made me feel very comfortable and explained the procedure to me very clearly and answered all questions I had. Everything went well and I am very thankful he was recommended to me

Had an ablation approx 3 mo ago and had a wonderful experience with Dr. Krivitsky and Washington Adventist. He was very through in explaining everything and didn't have any complications/issues with my procedure. Would definitely recommend him to friends and family!
Caused major trauma to my chest area when he put a new pacemaker on the left side of my chest.. Six month after surgery my neck and chest area was swollen the size of baseball. When I ask why this was so large I was told it looked better than others had been seen. Waited over 45 min to see him after 1st visit to check my device after the surgery. I changed cardiologist and the device has to be removed due to infection and erosion. Wouldn't recommend anyone using this cardiologist.
