I went to see Dr. Kovach for a routine diabetic eye exam.. Office disorganized and staff non welcoming. Dr. Kovach hurried thru appointment. had no time for my questions and concerns. Didn't even close the exam room door before my exam, never washed his hands before greeting me. I am a nurse and patient and this is NOT the care anyone should receive.
Poor bedside manner. Continually brushes off my concerns and vision remains at zero improvement,

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
