“Dr Kavia listened to my concerns and immediately took steps to try and investigate the issues by tests and scans, this was very reassuring. I was also able to see Dr Kavia again for the results 2 days later. A very approachable Dr, he clearly is very knowledgeable but also has great communication skills. I would definitely recommend to others and would most certainly refer back to him with any future problems. “

    I have met Mr Kavia on a number of occasions and each time I have found him to be considerate, caring , approachable and extremely professional. On 12th August he performed a endoscopic examination of my bladder, the procedure went well and again eased my concerns and answered all my questions in a very professional and understanding way. Mr Kavia has agreed to perform Urolift surgery at CMH at a later date and to this end I have given my G.P a letter from Mr Kavia in order for me to be put on his list . I short i cannot speak highly enough of the merits of this gentleman.

    Firstly Mr Kavia has a wonderful bedside manner and treated me s a friend from the first. He explained all aspects as to how he could help me and gave me full details of the treatment. He was charming and instilled total confidence. I went to him having been almost totally incontinent for a decade and after his expert treatment walked out as a normal person with control of my bladder. He did explain that the treatment might not last for ever but could be done again.

    Mr. Kavia is one of those specialists you feel at ease at once when meeting him for the first time and makes you feel you can trust him totally. At the same time his great experience as a urologist shines through. Wether you are NHS patient or a private one (and I have been his patient as both) he will treat you with great respect and care. I totally recommend him to anybody.

    Mr. Kavia is an outstanding medical professional and I found his care very professional and compassionate too. He took the time to clearly explain the cause of the symptoms(LUTS) I was feeling, took me through the treatment options I could potentially follow while at all times patiently and thoroughly answering all the queries and questions I had. We finally decided on the UroLift option and Mr. Kavia’s great knowledge and expertise in this procedure has resulted in a very successful out come from the procedure leading me to be symptom free. I would also like to thank Mr. Kavia’s secretary who was very professional and prompt in her communication with me during what was a difficult time. In summary I would highly recommend Mr. Kavia and his team to anyone who requires medical attention for any Urology related issues.
