I was lucky enough to be connected with Dr. Krivak after a very unexpected medical issue arose. I was referred to him after discovering a basketball sized ovarian cyst needed to be removed. I was very scared and nervous, to say the least, but after meeting with him and discussing a care plan, I felt like I was kn the best hands possible. He has amazing bedside manner. He is confident, well spoken, intelligent, and makes the patient feel as if they've known him for years. My anxiety and nerves were through the roof, but Dr. Krivak promised he would take care if me as if I were his own daughter, and you know what, I believed him wholeheartedly. Never once did I question his care or expertise. Throughout the process of the surgery and hospital stay and all of the follow up appointments, this was an experience that was positive thanks to the care of Dr. Krivak and his team. From the office staff to the PA, to the nurses, and everyone in between.. they were all fantastic!!

I had to have a bilateral cystectomy and couldn't have asked for a better surgeon. He checks in on me regularly and is in regular contact with my fertility doctor and my OBGYN, even though my surgery was almost 2 & 1/2 years ago.

For the first 5 years I absolutely loved this doctor, and recommended him to everyone that I ran across who was in need. When I began to ask deeper questions about my care and treatment he turned on me like a pit bull, as if I did not have the right to question him. While I regret the end of our relationship, I am glad that I saw him in the cold light of day.

Initially, I felt my overall experience with Dr. Krivak was positive. There is no doubt regarding his expertise. He is intelligent and very confident. However, at times the communication became difficult. He is extremely limited and because of his concern for his patients makes promises or statements that are not fulfilled. The follow up is difficult because his schedule does not allow for flexibility. He definitely will get the job done and with good results.

Dr Krivak is a very skillful and confident physician/surgeon. He is extremely busy and if you are in need of flexibility this is not the dr for you. His time is very limited and he may at first accomodate you but then after it will become more and more difficult if follow up is needed.

Dr Krivak is kind, smart, patient and great at follow up! He’s so compassionate and knows how devastating a negative diagnosis can be. He’s very calming and respects your autonomy when decisions have to be made.

I'm in post surgery care now and am still pleased with his caring and thorough exams. My cancer was very early stage endometrial cancer but he still shows great care with my questions. I'm thankful for the referral to him last December 2017 when I found out the news.

I could not be more pleased with the personal and professional care that I received from Dr. Krivak. This was an emergency situation, with my husband out of town. Dr. Krivak reached out to my husband, and even gave us his personal cell phone number should we have any questions or concerns. I am very grateful that Dr. Krivak was recommended to me for my surgery.

I found him to be just wonderful. Very warm and genuine. You get the feeling he really cares about you and will do a great job. I am very nervous about my cancer surgery, but knowing this doctor will be in charge I feel much more at ease. His nurse is also so wonderful on the phone. This is an exceptional staff. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. I would highly recommend. So thankful to have found him.!

While I have only so far seen him for my initial visit, I have to say that Dr. Krivak has the absolute best bedside manner of any provider I have ever seen, or that my family has ever seen. I was so struck by his kind, gentle manner, the way he treated me like my being his patient was important to him. He immediately put me at ease, even when I was expecting possible bad news. He gave me plenty of time to ask questions & he answered with thoroughness. I'd refer every woman I know to him!

Dr. Krivak is an amazing doctor. He takes the time to explain medical terms to you. He has excellent people working with him. I especially want to speak of Christalyn Schimdt. She was so prompt in returning my calls, and she answered any questions clearly and never seemed rushed. She very promptly scheduled a bone biopsy for me and avoided endless weeks of worry. I am so grateful for her in addition to Dr. Krivak who was so kind to me throughout my bout with endometrial cancer.
