Loves to Prescribe Benzodiazapines show details Loves to Prescribe Benzodiazapines
by S. on Sep 14th, 2014

Although he comes off as kind and caring, I believe this doctor to be reckless and irresonsible. He prescribed both Atavan and Doxapin without apparent knowledge of their potential paradoxical effect (waking rather than sedating) or the extraordinary difficulty of withdrawal from them. He touted doxepin, tested it on his patients, and then revealed he had a part in developing Silenor, a rebranding of doxepin as a new low-dose sleep drug, for which he receives compensation. He prescribed Lunesta apparently compleely unaware that it acts very similarly to benzodiazapines with bizarre effects. He is living in the dark ages when it comes to sleep medicine.

I loved this doctor. He totally understood my issues and 10 yrs later still talking about how great my experience was. I am sorry that he is retired. I wanted to recommend him to a family member.

Kavey was highly recommended to me by physician friend of mine. After a sleep study and months of "treatment" I found that all the doctor did was take notes on his computer when I visited. On the first visit after the study he prescribed one medicine for Restless Leg even though I was supposed to be treated for sleep apnea. I was not prescribed a mask or CPAP machine. He just took notes. When I was having terrible reaction to the medicine he had prescribed he did not return my phone calls. Several days of phone calls. I think he is a fake. Never helped me. I doubt that he has all the specialties listed above. He is a fake in my opinion. Buyer beware.

Dr Kavey is the kind of doctor all physicians should strive to be. I found him compassionate, understanding and emphatetic.I feel he save my life in diagnosing and treating my sleep disorder. He has through the years continued to work with me and adjust treatment modalities. HIs staff has always been more than kind and helpful in setting up studies and scheduling appointments. I would truly not be able to practice my profession without his help and support. I think of him as afather figure. ALways there to help in the rough times

Dr. Kavey, despite his reputation (or perhaps because of it), does not provide help with insurance companies in getting the right amount of a prescription in case the dosage needs to be appealed. He does not like making prior authorization calls. More importantly, his follow up is poor. I left him, and he was going to call two of my other doctors "right away" as he was afraid certain medications I had, were interfering with each other. As of one week later, he had not done this. Also, based on merely verbal cues from me, he called into question an entire sleep disorder diagnosis I had...without explaining what that "incorrect" diagnosis would mean. (He was wrong in trying to re-diagnose the issue, BTW, as I had it re-established by another doctor). This combination of no office staff to help with insurance, no follow-through on matters he promised, and a misdiagnosis, forces me to call his competence into question. Thank you.

Meeting a sleep doctor to discuss sleep problems like hallucinations during sleepmade me anxious.Dr kavey listened and atthe conclusion of the appointment made mefeel comfortable enough to know he believed all my weird symptoms. HE suggested sleep studies which validatedI had a severe sleep disorder....I lovedr kavy. he has truly saved my life. He is kind, gentle, pateint,attentive and never stops trying to help me with my sleep problems...I owe him my life and my ability to contine to practice my profession. He is nothing short on one who walks on water fo r me.
