In a word...exceptional! One of the best in his field. He repaired my extensively torn retnia and saved my sight We are very fortunate for him to have an office in Petoskey. I would recommend him without reservations...
in Pellston, MI |
I had to see Dr. Covert on an emergency basis for a detached retina late in the afternoon. He was professional yet relaxed. He thoroughly explained what had happened and what the surgery the next morning would consist of. He explained this to me and my sons in easy to understand language that we understood. I left his office feeling confident that my prognosis was good.
