Save yourself the time and headache and see someone else. You are just a number to this guy and only cares about recommending unnecessary and costly procedures so he can make money off of you.

Dr Kovacevic is an excellent Doctor. He is compassionate and very through. He spends the time to get to know his patients and cares about their well being. He was the third Doctor which I saw for my elbow problem and in 6 months my elbow issue was resolved. I look forward to returning to returning to tennis. Thank you!

Excellent surgeon ! The right decision... Four months after surgery I am once again able to throw a ball, work in the garden, go to the gym and, most importantly, sleep through the night. Thank you "Dr. K" for repairing my shoulder!

Dr K helped repair a fracture in my shoulder. He also fixed a hill-sach lesion that occurred due a fall. Dr. K was able to fix both the lesion and fracture arthroscopic ally which reduced pain and accelerated recovery. During our pre-op and subsequent meetings he always took the time to explain the surgical procedure as well as steps to speed recovery. I recommend Dr. K without hesitation based on my surgical results.

Highly recommend Dr. Kovacevic. He was clear with his diagnosis, course of treatment, expected risks and long term care. Got back to my normal routine quickly with no complications. Follow up visits were thorough, including explanations of my x-rays and overall healing process. My family, physical therapists and PCP were impressed with the result of my surgery. If you are in need of orthopedic care, then I suggest you consider him.

Choosing and Having Dr Kovacevic as my elbow specialist was by far the right decision. His care and professionalism was outstanding. Dr. Kovacevic always took his time to hear my concerns and would always take time to explain medical procedures and would display all X-rays and MRI to me. My elbow is now so much better and my quality of life has been restored thanks to this surgery. I would definitely recommend this doctor to others.

My experience under Dr. Kovacevic has been excellent. From my first appointment, Dr Kovacevic always listened to my concerns and did his upmost to insure I had a good result. I never felt rushed during a appointment and all my questions were always answered. The bottom line is that I had a great surgical result and I am in a much better place when I presented Dr K with my shoulder issue.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Kovacevic. He shared information about my condition in a way that allowed me to feel a part of the process. Seeing the work that was done, I would highly recommend his skills as a surgeon. He also made an extremely good OT referral. I couldn't have been in better hands.

I was very nervous to the surgery but After I met with Dr Kovacevic I very assured to the surgery. On the day of surgery Dr Kovacevic was on my side to assure every thing will go well and sure enough the surgery went well and I'm recovering quicker than I previously thought. I'm glad and I feel very lucky to have Dr Kovacevic my doctor

Best decision I've ever made. I can do it very things used to do, but will no longer do crazy heavy work. Dr. K. Was thoroug and professional with a sincere concern for my well being. While the Yale system seemed to have a few holes in it regarding paperwork flow between departments, my surgeries went just as expected and my recovery, while not easy! Was certainly managable. I'd do it again with dr. K. In a second!
