Dr. Leon Kavaler's Ratings
I feel extremely fortunate to know Dr. Kavaler. He has been my gastroenterologist for many years, and I have complete confidence in him. I totally agree with reviewers who rate him and his team "truly 5 stars,""the absolute best." A top-notch diagnostician, he not only has treated my GI issues but also noticed a cardiovascular problem, recommended a very fine cardiologist and helped to save my life. As many others have noted, Dr. Kavaler is a remarkable physician and a remarkable human being. I recommend him wholeheartedly and without reservation.
I have been a patient of Dr. Kavaler for 10 years and as a senior citizen I could not find a more qualified gastroenterologist in the city of New York. His associate Dr. Jill Kavaler is also an outstanding physician. Between the two of them and their staff they all make what is a tough procedure the best possible experience towards good health. They are truly 5 stars.

Dr. Kavaler is hands down the absolute best! I have seen him for over 10 years now and have nothing but positive things to say. He is thorough, compassionate, personable and extremely competent. I have trusted him with my life (so has my mother and many of my friends) and I will continue to do so. His wife Jill is also an incredible Anesthesiologist. The best team hands down.
I have gone to Dr. Kavaler for the last fifteen years. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable, caring and thorough. My daughter has seen him for years a well and I have always felt secure in referring him to all of my friends, who also think he's the best. I would trust him, and have, with my life.
I cannot say enough of this man. He is the most professional/capable/genuinely good-natured doctor I have ever had. I am 28 years old and had an illness that could not be pin pointed....causing pain and agony for over a month. It was in my stomach, but x-rays/CAT scans/ultrasounds showed nothing. I was referred to Dr. Kavaler by a friend who had gone through a similar condition. Dr. Kavaler took my appointment, despite being booked, as an emergency. He gave me both a colonoscopy AND a endoscopy, and found an ulcer. 2 days later my torture was cured. Doctor Kavaler was easy to deal with, direct, and courteous. I would recommend this doctor to anyone! While other doctors told me I was crazy, this doctor cured me!
Based on my experience, I found this physician to be condescending and very dismissive regarding my presenting gastro problem . He also did not return calls as promised resulting in my needing to call back numerous times. This necessitated my seeking the services of another Gastroenterologist who correctly diagnosed the basis for my lingering gastro issue and assisted me in understanding the symptoms and relieving the symptoms entirely.
I went to Dr. Kavaler because I did not have success with other doctors. His staff was nice, appointments were timely, and he actually listened to how I was feeling. He scheduled my tests and referred me to a specialist and a surgeon- all in 1 appointment! (Like a real doctor should) He told me he would follow up. After surgery I was in poor condition. Dr. Kavaler stopped by just to say hi before he went home. He took matters seriously, stayed to do an emergency procedure, called all the right people, and fixed me. I am more than okay now and feel amazing. He saved my life. He is truly the best.
I went to Dr. Kavaler for my very first colonoscopy and he was great! His front desk was very welcoming and friendly, as was the rest of the staff. The procedure was quick and pain-free... and the good report afterwards was very comforting as well. I would strongly recommend Dr. Kavaler for any gastro work that needs to be done. He is very knowledgeable and happens to have a great sense of humor, too, which helped put me at ease before my procedure.
Dr Kavaler is amazing. Making an appointment was easy. I checked in at the front dest and was seen immediately (and right on time). His staff at the front desk and the nurse who drew my blood were both super kind and friendly. Dr Kavaler is one of a kind. They don't make doctors like him any more. He really cares about his patients. It's clearly evident how he loves what he does. He truly wants to make you feel better. He stayed late to add me on the schedule for an endoscopy. He checked on me over the weekend (multiple times)...and it was a holiday weekend. He promptly returns all my messages. He's passionate about gastroenterology and is committed to helping get you better. He's AMAZING.
