Patient Comments (1)
in Chula Vista, CA |
I've been a patient of Dr Kavy for 9 mos. I went to Dr Kavy on someone else's recommendation and I would recommend him also. He's person-able, thorough, straightforward and knowledgeable. Appointments are not always available as soon as I would like but he does have a NP, and 2 offices to help if appointment timing is more urgent.
