What People Say About Dr. Robert Kavaler, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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.
