Pinson, AL |
Never recommend him terrible bedside manner. Missed my diagnosis totally. Was very rude
New York, NY |
Dr. Kovacik was excellent in handling my husband's very difficult neurological problems. He spent a long period of time with us reviewing records, asking/answering questions and doing his assessment. He was direct and honest when referring us to a specialist. When I had difficulty getting an appointment quickly with the specialist, his staff was outstanding and he called the specialist himself to work things out. Very impressed with him.
