I was blessed to connect with Dr. Hovey over the past 4 weeks, with urgent, new-to-me kidney stones. Very scary. Thanks to her fine care, with the support of her team and the staff at Orange Coast Memorial, those stones are out and I am now healed. She's thorough, skilled and compassionate. More to the point, she got me through a very painful situation with good surgery, great care and just the right urgency. I'm so grateful to have found her (through Blue Shield) and grateful for her good work!

Dr. Hovey is very through and I have the up most confidence in her expertise regarding my problem. She spends time in answering all your questions and concerns. She is also very easy to talk too, I found her very compassionate and caring.

You have to wait several weeks for an appointment, even if you are a returning patient. She NEVER RETURNS PHONE CALLS. I was bleeding for several days when I finally got a hold of her after calling many times. Her staff (two snippy middle-aged women) is very rude and nasty. They screw up appointments and blame it on you.
