Best doctor ever. Always leave his office encouraged no matter what is going on with my son. Has an extremely positive attitude and truly cares about my son. Always takes as much time as needed to answer our questions and never makes you feel dumb. In fact, he says he would be mad if you didn't ask any questions you had. Lol

Dr. Hovick is awesome. He has diagnosed and treated my husband for many years and is a great doctor with whom I trust my husband's life. He is thorough, patient, and kind. His professionalism is off the charts. I highly recommend him to anyone with the misfortune of having kidney disease, but he'll take great care to see you get the best care possible and help you make the decisions necessary to improve your life and maintain a healthy lifestyle as much as possible.

Very pleasant and personable in all my interactions with him. I feel confident in his professional knowledge. Takes the time to explain and answer all my questions and concerns. He was referred by my personal doctor, who I have great confidence in. I would absolutely refer him to all my family and friends without hesitation.
