Gentle and Knowledgeable

Kerbavez is a gentle, knowledgeable and personable doctor. I wish his staff had more of his quality, and I wish the waiting time to see Dr. K was not so long. In spite of these drawbacks, I continue to see him because of his excellence as a doctor and as a person.

Regular yearly visits

I have been seeing Dr. Kerbavaz for a number of years and look forward to my f/u with him. I have hearing loss and inner ear fluid that he has managed to keep at bay. Wish I could have seen him years ago when my problems first started.
