Testimonials from patients of Dr. Kivett

from Carla in FL March 13, 2020 for Gerald J. Kivett, MD

Our Dr. Kevitt has been a wonderful inspiration to both myself and husband. We feel like part of his family. He sits and talks openly with us. Gives us the greatest care, and the best solutions to live a better, healthier life. Tho we don’t always follow his exact guidance, we do however try our best to do as he suggest. He has put in contact with other professionals, for certain health issues… See more

from Sheila in FL March 13, 2020 for Gerald J. Kivett, MD

Dr Kivett has been our general practitioner for many years. We are especially happy since he started his MDVIP practice a few years ago. He is accessible by cell phone when not in the office. Keeps all records from Hospital stays and other physicians I see. His personality is caring and he is very thorough

from Tom in FL March 10, 2020 for Gerald J. Kivett, MD

Dr. Kivett & I first met on a ski trip to Colorado many years ago and became friends, despite our political differences .We've spent many good times together & several important lifetime events together.
I dread the day he retires from his practice & compels us to search around for another physician of his caliber. He takes all the time necessary to talk to his patients… See more

from Dianna in FL February 29, 2020 for Gerald J. Kivett, MD

I hadn't felt like myself, but never could have imagined that it was something that required days in the hospital. At my morning workout, I didn't feel strong enough to do anything at all. Others offered to take me home, but I refused. I did call my husband after I got home. He came home from work and said, "we're going to Dr. Kivett's office!" Having MDVIP makes us feel that we can go anytime… See more

from Carla October 24, 2018 for Gerald J. Kivett, MD

My husband and I have been a patient of Dr. Kevitt for almost two years now. While we had to see quite often during the first 6 or so months to establish our goals and to be in better health. Having him as our primary has been the very best choice we've made. We both are feeling and doing so much better. Taking less meds than when we first started seeing him, we are eating healthier, from… See more

I appreciate the fact that I can get in to see Dr. Kivett pretty quickly when needed. He takes time to visit and explain things clearly to me. In December 31st, 2004, Dr. Kivett got me in to MD Anderson to begin treatment immediately for my cancer diagnosis. I didn't have to go through the process of seeing other doctors. He got me right in! I believe this helped save my life because I… See more

from Carla in FL March 1, 2018 for Gerald J. Kivett, MD

Since having Dr. Kevitt, as our primary, my husband and I both, have felt so much better. He's helped us to get our health back on track. He doesn't just hand out medicine or put you in a room to forget about you

With each visit to his office, we have felt like we belong, and not just a number.
It's so very nice to have a doctor and his staff, make you feel at home… See more

from Hollis in FL February 28, 2018 for Gerald J. Kivett, MD

I have chronic pain from 3 spinal surgeries, which requires an equal amount of professional competence and personal consideration. Dr. Kivett has no equal in his appreciation for the special care that I require, and he delivers. But, a good leader selects the perfect people to support the objective of patent care. His staff goes beyond the call of duty and always displays a cheerful and… See more

from Larry March 31, 2017 for Gerald J. Kivett, MD

My wife and I both, recently moved here to Florida, and were nervous of what a doctor was going to be like here. We didn't want to be just another number or shrugged off with our concerns.
Finding Dr. Kivett has been a blessing. He's made both of us feel at ease, he's taken alot of time with us to get us both feeling better. His personal time and communication is… See more
