I was seen in September of 2017. He has poor bedside manner. He has a very sarcastic sense of humor and is condescending when speaking to his assistant.

Their "policy" is that you not only pay for every visit, you're charged extra for a urine test & then a sonogram EVEN FOLLOW-UP VISITS when you're just there for your test results.

The place was clean and the staff was courteous. The staff office is a bit loud that makes it hard to heard when registering.

Very knowledgable. Maybe a little rushed because the office was very full, but I felt like he knew what he was talking about and was confident he could help me. Will be back for sure.

Dr. Kivell is a nice doctor and seems very knowledgeable. However, he was working too fast and I wished he would had slow down to answer all my questions. He was rushing because he had other patients to see and wasbehind. I have another appointment with him so will be3 able to tell if he is always like that.

Dr. Kivell was very pleasant, introduced himself and listened carefully when I explained the reason for my visit. He gave me a prescription which I'll try and some exercises to do, but I wanted more understanding of the physiology behind mySUI and UI issues. I'll follow his suggestions and follow up with him.

The office staff is very friendly, but Dr. Kivell is too fast and do not listen to your needs. First visit, i went after being at the emergency room, and i had a lot of pain and questions, but i wasnot able to ask most of my concerns because in 5 minutes we were done. Second visit (follow up), it was faster, he only took like 2 minutes with me. I am not saying that he is good or bad, but if you see a doctor is because you don't feel good, and want an idea of what you have. He told me everything was right, but i did not feel his human touch.

I was seen quickly. The doctor is very funny and consultation was not too long cause he looked into my record and had somewhat of a knowledge as to my history. The only thing I would change is that even afterI filled out all the paperwork online I was still required to fill out more firms and on top of that had to fill in the same info on a tablet. Other than that I was happy with fast service and a nice nurse.
