Dr. Krevitt is a phenomenal doctor — the best thyroid cancer doctor in the country. And also an incredibly kind and caring person. When I was in need of cancer surgery specialist for thyroid cancer, I asked everyone I could who was the best, and I was repeatedly told to go to Dr. Krevitt. And I am so fortunate that they did. He saved my father’s life. He quickly diagnosed the issue, and the surgery was a perfect success. I whole-heartedly recommend Dr. Krevitt. Surgery is scray, especially throat cancer surgery. So, it was important to have the best doctor. My whole family is incredibly lucky to have found Dr. Krevitt. And, because we did, we also will be incredibly lucky to have our father around for many years to come.

After going through all the specialists I was sent to in Ontario Canada I was told they couldn’t find the cause or fix my sinuses and I had to live with it and take pain killers. I contacted the office of Dr. Krevitt and found the entire staff very helpful and knowledgeable. They went out of their way to work with me for a resolution. Dr. Krevitt not only figured out the issue on the first appointment he did surgery and in a one hour surgery was able to fix everything our doctors had given up on. I had forgotten how amazing it felt to be able to breath and sleep an entire night. The quality of service was so amazingly professional and courteous that I am unable to put It into words. Thanks to everyone at your facility, you gave me a quality life back.
