Approach

Elizabeth Kavaler M.D. I have dedicated my career to the study and treatment of female urological disorders, such as chronic urinary tract infections, various kinds of incontinence, pelvic floor prolapse, and interstitial cystitis. Traditionally, urology has been a specialty primarily populated by men, with a focus on male problems. I am determined to inform women that their problems are not only real, but treatable. Incontinence, pelvic pain and pelvic floor prolapse... all of these conditions are treatable, manageable or curable. Women no longer need to be embarrassed or afflicted with bladder problems. Nobody has to suffer. Everyone can be helped, no matter how young or how old.

How was your experience with the doctor?I had visited an urgent care twice with an issue and they weren’t able to help, as soon as I saw Dr Kavaler she helped me. I was feeling better by the end of the day and I’m truly grateful for her professionalism and sense of urgency. She knew exactly what was going on and what to do — a fantastic provider! I will always be recommending her and will be sure to visit again.

How was your experience with the doctor?I’m relieved to have found Dr. Kavaler. As a younger woman without children, it was near impossible to get other doctors let alone urologists (I had seen two others prior to my appointment) to take my issues seriously. She listened and made the connection that my issues were related to a connective tissue disorder that few doctors have any real knowledge of. She’s clearly knowledgeable and competent, and funny to boot! I felt completely comfortable in her office, even while undergoing relatively invasive diagnostic testing. Regardless of your gender, I highly recommend her for anyone who has a urology issue and is not interested in penile cosmetic enhancement but rather a purely medical view of how to manage or treat your issue.

How was your experience with the doctor?I chose this doctor due to the wonderful reviews online and was incredibly disappointed. Blood was found in my urine and after conducting an ultrasound where nothing was found, the doctor did not care to figure out why this was happening. I mentioned feeling ongoing abdominal pain and she stated that I should "learn to live with it" by exercising. Did not care to find out what was causing my issues. I would highly discourage anyone from seeing this doctor.
