    Neglected to tell me to stop taking aspirin before surgery - as a result I bled continuously for several days. Does not return phone calls. Very rude staff.

    Dr. Hovey is a very compassionate doctor. She is so easy to talk too, has the sweetest disposition and such a cute sense of humor. This is so important when you have to see a urologist, or in fact, any doctor. She is very through in her diagnosis and treatment. She gives you a complete understanding explanation regarding your diagnosis and treatment. I have the up most faith in her care. I was so fortunate and grateful that she saw me in her office as a unscheduled emergency appointment.

    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!
