Dr. Covington is very knowledgeable and takes time to answer every question. Even though my grandmother had colon cancer I was reluctant to have my first colonoscopy and had been avoiding it for years. He took the time to explain the process and how preventable colon cancer can be. I came through the procedure and all went well. Years of worry were for naught. I highly recommend Dr. Covington. He is a true professional who genuinely cares. And his staff and the staff at the Surgery Center are Fantastic. Pat Effort, PA Feb. 7, 2019

I went to Dr. Covington, after a colonoscopy showed a mass in my colon. Dr Covington went over the entire procedure with my wife and myself. He was extremely thorough, professional, very knowledgeable and made me feel as comfortble as possible with the upcoming surgery. After surgery, he came out and talked to my family and answered all their questions. His bedside manner was excellent, and on a side note all the nurses said he is a wonderful doctor.
