What People Say About Dr. Carol Kovanda, MD
Reply
Dr. Kovanda is a skilled and friendly OBGYN. I used her for a robotic assisted procedure and she did fantastic! I cooked my own dinner the day of surgery (not recommended!) and was off pain medicine and going to town within days (also not recommended). Because my surgery was robotic assisted, it was laparoscopic and I was back at work in half the normal time! She is an excellent doctor and I highly recommend.
