Dr Kovan is amazing. He totally knows his stuff and helped both my shoulders with cortisone and PT. Dr Michaels did one of my cortisone injections under U/S and was very gentle. Thankfully I’m on the road to recovery. Also Madison and Vanessa are both knowledgable and friendly.

I had been suffering with pain for over a year with increasing weakness in lower extremity as well as pain with walking, sitting, standing that was affecting every aspect of my life. I was emotionally a mess and had been passed from doctor to doctor with no help. From the very first visit Dr. Kovan gave me hope and immediately tried to help get me relief of pain and answers to cause. He would not send me away and then made sure I got to the right doctor to fix the cause of my pain. He did what he promised and more. I will be forever grateful.

I went to see Dr. Kovan because I had received non-cosmetic box injections in my left arm and wrist for spasticity from a stroke. I was so pleased because he did the procedure my first visit because I had previously had it done and Si understood everything about it. I was thinking I would have yo come back to get the injections after my first visit. It was a blessing getting the injections that very someday and I received a script for apt& Ot also and he referred a facility that was close to wear I live. He referred me to Athletico on Grand Ztiver in Novi. Which happens to be the best therapy I have received since May stroke on 10/31/05. I have gone to many therapy facilities and Athletico is by far the tops. Thank you again Dr. Kovan for your service. You were very accommodating , professional and efficient on my first visit to your office. I will most definitely refer others to you!

Dr. Eric Kovan and his office staff treat the patients’ subjective and objective complaints. He has been my PM&R physician for two years now; additionally I am an RN. Both Livonia and Novi offices are easy to locate, and follow up appointments are generally quick with little wait time. I highly recommend Dr. Kovan’s practice to anyone in need of PM&R.

After having multiple spine surgeries he is a lifesaver for my pain. They squeezed me in before Thanksgiving otherwise I was gonna go to the hospital because of knee and hip pain. He is now trying to save me from a knee replacement He always makes we smile or laugh. Also the staff there is fantastic to me. I look forward to going there cause I know someone is going to make me smile. Also Dr.Jenny Michaels is so nice when your getting injections under X-ray. Great place to go

Dr. Kovan helped me get my life back. When I first saw him I couldn't move due to the extreme pain that I was having. I'm in physical therapy three times a week and I have improved immensely. He took me seriously when I said I was in crippling pain. With the help of PT and pain meds I can finally function. Thank you Dr. Kovan.
