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!

Atrocious bedside manner
Charged 121 dollars to remove earwax, did not go in to have ear wax removed nor was told that the procedure would cost 121 dollars. (Family doctor could have done that cheaper.)

Excellent doctor! My wife had to have corrective surgery for a deviated septum. The procedure took twenty minutes just as he said it would. During the initial visit he was able to diagnose the problem within minutes.

He was so nice and helped me breathe a lot better. Also very smart and informative. Would recommend to others.
