in Crete, IL |
Dr. Bovis was very knowledgeable and informative in answering all my questions and concerns regarding my condition, the upcoming surgery and the recovery and follow up treatment. I never once felt that he was not qualified enough to do my surgery. I would definitely recommend him to my family & friends.
