    in Wheat Ridge, CO |
    Dr Kovar was the cardiologist who not only pulled me through a 2012 heart attack and put in two stints, but has been my cardiologist ever since. In my 69 years, I've never had a more competent and compassionate doctor. He never rushes through an appointment and always answers all questions. I highly recommend Dr. Kovar to anyone to has cardiovascular concerns.
