Ratings for Dr. Vivan Kilvert
I started seeing Doctor Kilvert last year. You will not find a more caring, humble or knowledgeable doctor. I have hashimoto disease, diverticulitis, and I am going through peri menopause and she has been nothing but helpful and understanding. As a matter of fact she was the one to help me get a diagnosis of diverticulitis after my last doctor couldn’t be bothered and kept calling the attacks a UTI. Plus she has such a warm personality and a good sense of humour. I am always chatting away nonstop and not letting her get a word in edge wise but she lets me talk and listens and never makes me feel bad for my anxious personality. I absolutely love this doctor. She is the rock star of GP’s! ❤️
My husband and I love Dr. Kilvert. She was a locum doctor at the clinic we go to. She is very thorough and will go the extra mile to search out information for you. To our delight, she called us at home to relay test results. I cant tell you how much that put our minds at ease. She is authentically caring and very easy to talk to. You leave the office feeling very well cared for.
My medical concern was brushed off by another doctor at the same clinic. I persevered and was seen by Dr. Kilvert at a later date. She quickly diagnosed my serious disorder and made an emergency appointment with a specialist who promptly and successfully treated my problem. Where is she practicing now? I would like to continue as her patient.
Dr. Kilvert was the best thing that could have happened to me. I had gone in for an appointment to the same office I've been going to for 30 years and happened to get her because she had just started as a locum. Because of her nature to always go above and beyond I had bookwork, a CT scan and a diagnosis of a pulmonary embolism within a week. She always took the extra time for me and never rushed me no matter what. I selfishly cried when she left the office even though I was extremely happy for her. Anyone lucky enough to come into contact with this Dr should consider themselves truly blessed.
We had Dr Kilvert as our family doctor for a short while, then she was relieved from her practice at the clinic on 4 th avenue. We sincerely hope and wish she would open a new family practice in or around Ladysmith. In our estimation she was a first class doctor who took the time to consider her patients needs and requirements
Dr. Kilvert is undoubtedly the Best doctor I have ever known and I have known many. There were five of them in my family so I know the breed. Beyond that I have had a third degree bun to 38% of my body coupled with a near fatal serum hepatitis so again I know the breed and she is the best ever in my 78 years
I also am responding to Dr. Kilvert leaving as one of THE most conscientious doctor I have encountered. By far the most easy comfortable listener to make visits stress free and confident the problem will be resolved. Whomever finds this doctor in their area will be fortunate indeed. I would be much sadder and more vocal if I was not leaving the area as well. VIHA decisions are based on political short time frames and incredibly naive about long term health care problems compounding when excellent doctors leave.
