I recently had experiences with Dr. Krivit. He is someone I will not recommend. They information he provided was lacking during diagnosis. I need to investigate further why he wanted to perform surgery. Pre-surgery he never even consulted me. Post surgery my husband found him arrogant and to busy to answer valid questions. I had concerns about post surgery issues and how they were being handled. He became very aggressive in his manner and voice. I was astonished by the lack of compassion. NO.

I went in for what I thought was an allergy test. I ended up waiting an extra half hour for my appointment and his rushed demeanor was apparent. He looked at my nose for a few minutes. Sprayed something in it, stuffed it with cotton, said it was medicine and left. Returned 10 minutes later and proceeded to hastily perform a nasal endoscopy without telling me or asking me. I felt incredibly violated. Horrid bedside manor. I dread the bill for a procedure I didn’t request or consent to.

I went for an initial visit for breathing issues w my nose. He saw me for 5 minutes, during which he scopes me without asking. He said I needed surgery and his nurse would explain and he left. The nurse gave a brochure about 1 part but didn’t know the other part. After surgery, he talked to my spouse for 30 seconds, and refused to give effective pain meds. I am miserable and don’t really understand what he did, and he won’t even speak with me.

He had a horrible bedside manner. He did an unnecessary procedure, ordered a ton more tests, and didn't even do what I was referred here to do. A lot of money for a disappointment. Especially when the tests he ordered can go through my primary care physician. Every time I had a new question, it's like he was frustrated that he had to stay in the room.

5 minutes was all he gave me to misdiagnose and then prescribe a medication that was expensive and did nothing to help. It was very frustrating, expensive and a waste of time. It is very sad that when you are referred to a specialist they don't even take the time to find out the problems you are having because they are so overbooked or just don't seem to care. Thank God I went for a second opinion to someone who actually listened to what the problem was and received the correct diagnosis.

After reading some attitudes about Dr. Krivit, I went in wondering what to expect., If you are looking for a Doctor who covers you with hugs and kisses and tells you what you want to hear, Go elsewhere. But.. If you want a highly trained. knowledgeable professional diagnostician; one who tells it like it is and has the training, both collegiate and experience, Dr. Krivit is the best. Went in for bloody nose and got treated for ear problems I wasn't aware of. Just part of his protocol.

Dr. Krivit has no bed side manners, no compassion, he is very blunt! He wanted rush me into surgery the next day to fix my crooked nose, I told him that I have to give a two week notice because it was not an emergency. He seems more concerned about making money than treating the illness! He don't explain things very well, he used some medical terms that I didn't understand, I told him that I don't know what that is! I don't care for him. I need to find another doctor!
