"Dr. Kavathia is amazing! He "thoroughly" explains how the digestive system works with other diseases within one's body in order to cope with your life. He's patient, understanding, has impeccable listening skills, and shows great concern for my overall well being. He truly has placed me on a better day to day manageable path and I'm grateful! There is nothing worse than your digestive system shutting your body down and feeling helpless. He executed a plan that has given me determination and hope. If there were 10 stars I could rate Dr. Kavathia I would!"

"I have had a serious case of Crohn’s disease for over 40 years, and have been with this practice since the beginning. My first two doctors retired, and I was placed with Dr. Kavathia approximately 5 or 6 years ago. He is extremely knowledgeable, always up on the latest treatments, willing to think outside of the box, and knows just how urgent matters are. In addition, his assistant, Debbie, is the most competent medical assistant I have ever been lucky enough to have a doctor working with. She understands priorities, always gets, back to you, and is very kind and compassionate, as is the entire staff. I can’t say enough about this great doctor and his wonderful staff."

"Have seen several gastroenterologists over the past 15 years and Dr. Kavathia is the "best of the best." Not at all surprised that he is a recurring "Best Phoenix Doc." He is kind, he is personable, he is EXTREMELY knowledgable and he is a wonderful listener who pays careful attention to all of your symptoms and history to arrive at a suspected diagnosis and schedule appropriate testing and procedures. In addition he explains everything clearly and thoroughly and answers all questions. I can't praise this physician and the Mesa office and staff enough. Dr. Kavathia is another one of the doctors I have found here that truly practice the "art" not just the science of medicine. PS: It is now 9/3/2019 and I am adding to his review that I wrote over a year ago now that I have been seeing Dr. Kavathia for almost almost a year and a half. He continues to provide excellent care. I have to also add that his medical assistant Debbie goes above and beyond--- always responding to calls in a timely fashion, always with great information and a kind and supportive demeanor. Also a shout out to the entire office staff as well from appointment making to check in to vitals. Everyone is friendly, efficient, and works towards creating a very pleasant in office experience."

"In summer of 2017 I had 2 doctors tell me there was nothing wrong with me and I simply had the flu, as my health continued to decline my primary doctor and a friend put me in touch with Dr. Nilay Kavathia. Had I not seen him that summer I may not be writing this review today. Dr. Kavathia not only examined everything possible for his field but also demonstrated a compassion and empathy that will assure you that you are in the right hands. After countless visits to doctor's, hospitals, and surgical centers I am happy to say I am now completely healthy, on no medications, etc. Dr. Kavathia played a huge role in that. He is the best. If you ever read this, thanks doc!"
