I believe each of us has a job to commit to being a force towards bettering our world, each bringing our own unique talents and skills. I carry that belief in my heart.
To me, medicine is not a job, a career, or a profession. Becoming a physician is committing to an identity. It is who you choose to be, always. It is a commitment to putting the care of all people front and center in all aspects of your life. I honor that physician identity by aiming to heal and comfort the sick without judgment and without regard to our differences, whatever they may be. It is my role in the healing of this world and my commitment as a physician and an individual.
In the words of Mother Teresa, ‘The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.’

Dr. Kravitz is the most patient-centric doctor I’ve ever gone to. That makes getting on his schedule difficult but he is the best and is worth it. All of the ARC providers should be as tuned in to their patients as he is. He is truly an example of what everyone needs from a doctor.
Dr Kravitz is the best! I never worry about the care or his recommendations!
Professionalism, expert advice, taking time to explain and provide required medical care.
Dr Kravitz was patient and easy to talk to.
Definitely did not like waiting for two hours to be seen. Don’t make the appointment available if the doctor has a trainee tagging along. Not fair to someone that may have other things scheduled or not feeling well!
