    I highly recommend Dr. Kauvar as she is my skin hero! I had problematic skin for many years. I’ve been down a long skin journey and I truly have never seen better results any where else. She is extremely knowledgeable, kind and doesn’t over-do it. The staff is wonderful and it’s a very nice environment. I have only good things to say.

    I have been a patient of Dr Kauvar and her highly professional team for over a decade for surgical and other treatments of my skin cancers, including by MOHS. Being of English/Irish genealogy I have become prone to frequent basal and squamous cancers as I age. She has always been supremely successful in her treatments which are done in beautiful and well equipped surroundings. I cannot do any more than highly recommend her and her group for their professional medical service and warm, intelligent and caring advice.Sincerely,Daniel N. Storr

    Dr. Kauvar is absolutely amazing. When I moved to New York I had already been diagnosed with skin cancer. I took a lot of time to research a good fit for me and my needs. I knew I wanted someone that was ASDS board certified. She took a personal interest in me and my health. She has preformed over 50 surgeries for me over several years. I can’t imagine going through all I have been through without her. She is the best.

    I'm at that age where I want to balance the need to accept physical changes with the desire to look the best I can using only noninvasive treatments. I wanted a doctor who understands this tug of war, and who uses cosmetic treatments sparingly to give a super natural look. I found that in person in Dr. Kauvar. She's very subtle and meticulous with her treatments. I leave looking refreshed, not redefined. I really like this doc.

    Dr Kauvar was referred to me by a good friend who has been going to her for years for annual skin checks and removal of skin cancers. I am so pleased to have been given this referral because aside from the thorough job she did on my skin check, she was also able to give me her expert opinion on the procedures I can do to make my skin looking younger and more vibrant. I have in turn been passing along this referral to all my family and friends.

    I have had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Kauvar for a suspicious mole. Not only was she knowledgeable, she was also pleasant and friendly and put my fears at ease right away. She took the time to explain everything thoroughly to me. I am very happy to have been referred to her. The office was very clean and beautiful, and the staff were amazing as well.

    Dr. Kauvar has an excellent attention to detail above and beyond what I have experienced with similar practitioners. She really knows how to take exactly what you are looking for and convert it into the right treatment with results that exceed expectations. Her internal office team was exceptionally knowledgeable and approachable for questions of all kinds which helped tremendously with the process and comfort with procedures.
