Dr Cove takes the time to listen to my problems, explain alternative treatments and allow me to make the choice. The explains meds especially well and appears to be a friendly and caring physician at all times

Dr Cove did not appropriately set my expectations for the procedure he performed on me. He continues to refuse to respond to me in an appropriate manner. I would NOT recommend him for cardiology procedures. His ego is too large to listen to patients & answer their questions.

A most considerate specialist. He takes the time needed and uses language that helps calm you down. Very happy with his bedside manner and recommendations. After my angiogram, no serious after effects. Excellent staff follow through. 5 STARS!
