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.
