I love Dr. Kavcic, in all of the years i have been going to him only once did i see a NP/PA and that was because of him being on vacation and I had to be seen after 1 week of being on meds. I read all these posts about the rude office staff and i have never seen them be rude to anyone nor have they ever been rude to me. Yes they are not hand holding full of warmth office staff BUT all I care about is how my doctor treats me and he has been one of the best.

very caring and takes the time to listen. He takes the time to explain things.

Dr Kavcic listened to me as a patient and realized something was wrong immediatel at a young age. . I unfortunately was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy at 25. I'm now 37 and have Dr Kavcic to thank you for helping me through life and my family is forever grateful.

Takes the time to listen and answer your questions. Explains your health conditions and medications. Is never quick to put you on a new medication that he deems risky. Cautious with treatment, but gets it right when he does put you on medication. Friendly and personable. Has some concept of empathy for you at times and expresses it. No problems being seen when sick. Is adamant about going for your medical tests which can be intimidating if you're reluctant to go.

Dr. Kavcic is wonderful! However, I am looking elsewhere for service. I can not believe how rude the front desk staff is to their patients. We are customers of healthcare and deserve to be spoken to with respect. Absolutely awful. I even mentioned this to other workers there and they rolled their eyes at me! So unprofessional!

This doctor's office and staff are rude and unprofessional. When calling his office, they are unreachable. You are asked to leave a voice mail for the nurse and told that she will most likely get back to you "at the end of the business day". While I understand that it is a busy office, there is no excuse for a primary doctor being unreachable by phone for patients who need assistance. When she finally got on the phone, she was rude and extremely unhelpful.

I would recommend family and friends to Dr. Kavcic. However, because of the women that work in the front office, it would be very unlikely. The reception area women are not nice and talk very unprofessionally to patients. The doctor is wonderful, but the women up front helped me make my decision to leave!
