Where our data comes from - The data you see on providers' Healthgrades profiles comes from both the provider and public sources. The Top Care Areas section uses public data from billing claims that providers submit to insurance companies. That data is filed nationwide on behalf of the provider to either the government or a private health insurance company.

How we evaluate our data - Patient volume is analyzed by provider and compared nationally with all providers who perform the same procedure, or treat the same condition. We organize the volume data in percentile ranking from 'may perform' for the lowest claims volume to 'Very High' for the highest claims volume data. For a given condition or procedure, performance categories are defined based on 80%, 90%, and 95% confidence intervals from the average patient volume for all providers in our database. Providers identified as ‘may perform’ do not have sufficient volume for Healthgrades to create a statistical evaluation.

I have seen Dr. Kovach for the last 2 years. I had both eyes cataracts removed. I later developed secondary cataracts for which Dr. Kovach removed as well. My left eye had a huge floater that was annoying to me and he removed that. The doctor is very good and personable. You can talk to him about any eye issues and get satisfying answers to your questions. Some of the visits you can be in and out within an hour. Other visits, depending on procedure, take longer, 2 to 3 hrs. Plan ahead

I would not recommend Dr Kovach to my enemies. He had an assistant explain the various implants/prices. He scheduled my 2 cataract surgeries after talking to me for 15 min. I didn't have time to think. He was pushing the Crystalens implant. For that one I paid $4000 per eye out-of-pocket to see far, intermediate, and close. WOW - sounded great! I can't see close in either eye; have a contact in my right eye to create mono-vision; using readers; after 2 years the distance is getting better.

He performed LASIK. He was nice but busy. 1yr follow up. Told everythings fine though I had an issue of dry eye in 1 eye. Went home and my both eyes swelled up and itching. Called for help and they wanted my health ins. info. I could barely see so I said no. My appt fee was covered in initial LASIK cost. Told I will be called back. The next day I had to call again. Main concern my ins. info. Then I get ins bill? I am told due to my diagnosis?! I'm told scary news ask him to call 2 months nothing
