Testimonials from patients of Dr. Kivett

from Larry in FL March 9, 2024 for Gerald J. Kivett, MD

My wife and I retired in June of 2016 and decided to try being “snowbirds” , 6 months a year in Massachusetts and 6 months in central Florida. With this much time in 2 different locations, doctors in Florida would be a wise choice, already having physicians in Mass . My wife found on line the MDVIP program advertised and liked how the program connects clients to only Premium Physicians. My… See more

Dr. Gerald Kivett has been our primary care physician for a number of years, and we have grown to really admire, respect, and TRUST him. He is always available whether in person or by text or by phone. And we are never rushed during an examination with him. Dr. Kivett cares and clearly demonstrates that caring. I do not like to think of the inevitable, his retirement.

from William in FL February 10, 2024 for Gerald J. Kivett, MD

We are so grateful to you for being "the exception " in today's health care! I can bet that you are the one of the few, if not the only one, who cares so much for their patients that they "call them" to see how they are feeling after prescribing a treatment for them for various sicknesses! We pray for you continually and count you as one of God's true blessings in our lives. Please know we… See more

Dr.Kevitt has been a Blessing in my health care. He’s thorough, explains issues, test results, and is compassionate in his care for his patients.
I don’t believe I could find another primary care such as him.

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
