I was so pleased to get a second opinion from Dr. Kovatis. A podiatrist advised me that I has to wear a huge air cast due to a partial tendon tear. it was very hard to walk in the cast and it also thew out my back bad. He gave me good, sound advise and a much smaller and more comfortable ankle brace. He showed me physical therapy I can do at home and also told me that I didn't need surgery...what a relief! He is very caring and kind. I sure wish there were more doctors like him.
Dr kovatis operated on my right foot. He told me exactly what I needed and how he could help me. Dr. Kovatis was so knowledgeable about my condition that I trusted him to do my surgery without any doubts in my mind. My outcome was absolutely successful and I am so happy, but most importantly pain free! Thank you for being one of the best doctors in New Jersey!!

Dr. Kovatis is very thorough and caring. Dr. Kovatis explains your medical condition so you understand exactly what is wrong. Kim who is Dr. Kovatis assistant is very nice and understanding.

I had a bad ankle injury and was told elsewhere I needed surgery. Dr. Kovatis took his time and after an x-ray and MRI determined rehab was the best course and I was able to avoid a surgical procedure. I would recommend Dr. Kovatis to any of my friends and while I hope not to need his services in the future, will call upon him whenever I have an orthopedic problem. His medical assistant Kim was a pleasure to deal with and was able to relax me with her sense of humor. Thanks Dr. K and Kim
