Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Kavaler saved my life 8 years ago when he diagnosed my heart condition and told me to visit a Cardiologist. He is a really nice man in addition to being a great doctor. He takes his time and goes through test results in detail. He explains things in a very comforting, informative way. I have a lot of anxiety when I go to the doctor but not with Dr. Kavaler. I would recommend Dr. Kavaler to anyone who is not happy with their current physician.

I have a had quite a wild ride in life, medically speaking. I’ve had times where I didn’t know if I’d make it through the year. Dr. Kavaler is a fantastic, thorough, caring and compassionate Doctor with patience to spare and a winning personality. I’ve been with him for ten years and trust him implicitly. His nurse, Tanya is amazing as well.

He’s taken care of many family members and myself over 25 years. He’s a great diagnostician and provider of advice for best specialist referrals if needed. I’ve had renowned NYC doctors before I met him, but I have my Highest confidence and respect for him. I’ve recommended him to many friends and business associates over the past 20 years. He’s attentive and sharp in the office and always returns phone calls regarding medical questions. Top notch guy in every way.

I would like to reiterate what so many people have said: Dr. Kavaler is a superb physician! Over the past 20+ years I have been very fortunate to be his patient. Time and again, whatever the issue or problem that caused the need for the appointment, he takes the time to address every concern and question in a calm and caring manner. I always come away with exactly what I need to know. Recently, I had a telemed visit with him and the result was the same - positive, down to earth approach/advice. His competence comes across as well on the phone as it does in person.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kavaler for almost 20 years. He is the only doctor I've ever had who is just as concerned with health conditions, as well as life factors that trigger some some of the conditions. I've never once felt like I wasn't being heard or that I was rushed. I trust Dr. Kavaler implicitly...and that's a rarity. I recommend Dr. Kavaler to anyone who has ever asked me for a doctor referral. I honestly don't think I'd be alive, today, had I never met "Dr. Kav."

I was hesitant to write a survey about Dr. Kavaler, because I have so much to say, but not sure if I can put it all in to words. Our family has been seeing Dr. Kavaler for the last 20 years. He has saved my life more than once , no (exaggeration.) He is the most caring and sweet man I know. He has always had the best bed side manner. To our family he is like family. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a SMART, CARING, and SWEET DOCTOR , I have alot more to say but ran out of space :(

Dr. Kavaler is very kind, compassionate and answers all your questions in detail. He is extremely easy to talk to and makes you feel comfortable. He doesn't push meds or testing in anyway. He offers solutions and knows it's ultimately your body and your decision. I can't say enough about Dr. Kavaler. I have also been to Dr. Winer who is also excellent. Overall, I am very pleased with the quality of care and the physicians at Forest Healthcare.

Dr. Kavaler has been my primary care Dr. for many years. He's got a great bedside manner, is very kind and patient and puts you at ease. He's very knowledgable and is always sharing tidbits of advice as well as prescribing the right medicine. And he explains everything to you in an easy to understand way. He looks out for your best interest and needs and takes pride in his work and in his patients. I think he's excellent! I'm very thankful to have him as my Dr.
