Testimonials


As a long time patient and grateful recipient of Dr Kavner's care for my whole family I can wholeheartedly tell others his care is exemplary. His knowledge base is thrilling, and how ability to synthesize his wisdom into useful, accessible information is comforting, to say the least. I cannot say enough about this kind, gentle man and his legendary skills - he was one of the fathers of Occupational Optometry.
