I waited for an hour and a half. The doctor sent me for a hearing test. He must have spent at least 60 seconds examining me. The bill exceeded my insurance coverage by over $122. His prescription did nothing to help. I certainly would not waste my time to go back to him even if it was free. If I am going to be seriously overcharged, I at least want a competent doctor.

I have suffered from chronic sinus problems/issues for many years. After having some bad experiences & ineffective procedures performed by 2 previous doctors without any form of relief, I decided to take another chance & try out someone new. I'm extremely happy that I did because Dr. Leonard Covello was truly a Godsend! He's very detailed oriented, professional, informed, thorough, kind & has a great bedside manner. After surgery I finally feel great & my quality of life has vastly improved :)
