Review of Dr. Kovach

- in Naperville , IL |

I was referred to Dr Kovach many years ago and have always found him kind and compassionate. He performed surgery on me that exceeded my wildest imagination regarding the quality of vision I could have ever hoped for. His staff is the most professional and considerate of patients compared to any other doctor’s office in which I have ever been a patient. He uses only the finest quality equipment and I would never think to see any other eye doctor besides Dr Kovach. I hope he practices forever!

If I can give this guy 0 stars I would! He is a liar.Unnecessary surgeries done to the eyes. Said I have glaucoma , turns out I don’t have it! Said I had cataract , don’t have it enough to have a procedure done! He just wants $. He doesn’t have time for your concerns. Rolls his eyes and is very unprofessional. He doesn’t have time to sit and explain anything! He just wants your money! What a shame! RUN from this doctor!! You will be doing yourself a BIG favor!

I’ve been with Dr. K for 20 years. He’s very professional and despite what other reviews have said he always takes his time, answers my questions and what are the risks for different procedures. I’d highly recommend Kovach Institute.

To those complaining about wait, you may be that patient, someday, with a medical emergency requiring extra time for complex exam/diagnosis. I was referred by my optometrist due to sudden vision loss in 1 eye. Dr. K used every piece of equipment in office to confirm my eye was NOT the issue; a serious neurological medical condition was diagnosed at my next stop - the hospital ER. I was an uninsured CASH patient and I know Dr. K performed MANY tests at no charge to me that day. Forever grateful!

I waited for 6 months to post this review, just to be fair and take all the needed time for my eye lids to heal completely. RUN, do not walk, away from this provider. Nerve damage in my eyelids, left eye doesn't close properly, lumps in my eyelid from the lack of skill and care of this doctor. This is an eye mill that is in it soley for the purpose of making money. Concerns fell on deaf ears, as he had other patients waiting on the table and couldn't answer ??'s. Find a skilled surgeon.

Although Dr. Kovach is excellent and has great equipment, he does not allow enough time for scheduling and is always behind. Make sure to bring magazines and expect to be in waiting room for an hour or so

Review of Dr. Kovach

-Naperville, IL |

I went to see Dr. Kovach for a routine diabetic eye exam.. Office disorganized and staff non welcoming. Dr. Kovach hurried thru appointment. had no time for my questions and concerns. Didn't even close the exam room door before my exam, never washed his hands before greeting me. I am a nurse and patient and this is NOT the care anyone should receive.

Review of Dr. Kovach

- in Bolingbrook, IL |

I have seen Dr. Kovach for the last 2 years. I had both eyes cataracts removed. I later developed secondary cataracts for which Dr. Kovach removed as well. My left eye had a huge floater that was annoying to me and he removed that. The doctor is very good and personable. You can talk to him about any eye issues and get satisfying answers to your questions. Some of the visits you can be in and out within an hour. Other visits, depending on procedure, take longer, 2 to 3 hrs. Plan ahead

Review of Dr. Kovach

-Glenview, IL |

I would not recommend Dr Kovach to my enemies. He had an assistant explain the various implants/prices. He scheduled my 2 cataract surgeries after talking to me for 15 min. I didn't have time to think. He was pushing the Crystalens implant. For that one I paid $4000 per eye out-of-pocket to see far, intermediate, and close. WOW - sounded great! I can't see close in either eye; have a contact in my right eye to create mono-vision; using readers; after 2 years the distance is getting better.
