Ex-patient

Do not let him dish-out drugs to you or anyone you love. Go to a place where the doctor really cares about his patients - not someone who makes ($$ ??) to see his patients for about 12 minutes at a time and has the audacity to pretend like he knows and cares. People seem to be money machines to Dr. Kavalier. Don't be misled by his seemingly commanding persona.

Patient parent

We felt Dr. K was too quick to make judgments at times and prescribed an ill-researched drug called Risperdal to my son. When we tried to get him off the drug, he went manic and ended up in a psych ward. No warnings over numerous years from Dr. K regarding symptoms of use, let alone the horrific withdrawal symptoms.

He is an absolutely horrible doctor who pushes medicine and doesn't really care about the patient.
