What People Say About Dr. Thomas Krivak, MD

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.!

I had vulva cancer in 2010 and Dr. Krivak was my Dr. Loved him. He kept me clean for 5 years. Moved to Denver and my cancer returned. Had 3 surgeries in Denver and returned to Pgh. And started my follow ups with Dr. Krivak again. So blessed to be in his hands again. Having surgery again. Dr. Krivak will do what should of been done months ago. I trust him fully. Ty Dr. Krivak

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 quite possibly the kindest and most caring doctor I've ever met. He listens, explains and emphasizes on a level that is truly rare in the medical community. I literally trust him with my life and would recommend him to anyone.

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.
