After 2 visits, I cancelled 3rd appt and found another dr. The appt was very rushed, she spoke so fast, I couldn't keep up with her and even though both appts were 15 mins or less, she billed me for LONG visit. The wait time just to be called into exam room for both visits was 45 mins & 2 hrs, respectively. After seeing the 2nd dr, it confirmed Dr Kavi was way off base with the path she was taking me down. I didn't have any confidence in dr and glad I went with my gut and moved on.

Very hard to convey any info as no one tends to read the forms they ask you to fill out and return. Also the doc does not listen to your issues on the visit. I came in due to my migraine med was ineffective, after asking symptoms she recommends the medication that I just told her five mins previously was ineffective. So she prescribes me another med that no insurer allows in that quantity, so i call back the doc for another med, they asked me if I have taken the med i said did not work

She is the only doctor that listened to us, about my Husband, Bill and helped us find a cardiologist that found my husband had over 80% blockage, in his subclavian artery. He was able to have a stent put in, and is now recouping. Thanks Dr. Kavi.
