Owe Dr. Kolovich a great deal. He saved my right hand and forearm which had flesh eating bacteria. It took 14 surgeries and twice they were almost sure I would lose them both. He said that I was a miracle. He was the miracle, he never gave up.

Dr. Greg Kolovich Is an OUTSTANDING, Highly Qualified Hand/Wrist Orthopedic Surgeon. I was experiencing wrist pain from level 2 to as high as Level 8/9 between 11/2019 and 03/2020 I met with Dr. Kolovich, due to looming Cov-19 pandemic 'elective surgery' stoppage. pain spikes occurred while parking, during computer use, and lifting cooking pot. Through Dr K's Professionalism, Caring, Understanding of possible repairs and since I was unable to work, or safely drive any longer, Dr. K schedule surgery for the next week. Surgery outcome- 2 procedures done at the same time: #1 repair 'Ulnar impaction syndrome' required 'ulnar osteotomy' procedure #2 repair wrist arthroscopy with scope procedure to repair 2 TFCC tears inside the TFCC 3 month followup last week. Bone healing, still minor stiffness and soreness. I Cannot express my gratitude enough to Dr. Kolovich,and the entire Optim Health TEAM for their OUTSTANDING Work, Care and Support!!

Examinations always kept me reassured and well-informed. He's the 2nd ortho that has seen me as the 1st one didn't work, and everything went perfectly well with him well since day 1. Glad we've found Dr. Kolovich!

Dr. Kolovich is a very compassionate doctor. He is knowledgeable and at the same time he is friendly and always showed his concern in each and every visit. A friend of mine who had a wrist problem was also seen by him and we couldn't be any happier to have a good doctor like Dr. Kolovich. Truly one of a kind!
