    How lucky for us that our health care provider recommended Dr Kovar. He is professional, engaging, compassionate and kind. He has helped me every time I have gone to see him. He was the only Physcian who could help me with my Occipital Neuralgia. When I was in a crisis with my Occipital Neuralgia and called his office that fit me in right away. I don't mind waiting to see Dr Kovar I know that he has emergencies , as far as I am concerned Dr Kovar walks on water!

    Very pleasant, experienced and knowledgeable physician who actually cares and not only treats his patient's but takes the time to actually listen to them. A rare find a physician with excellent bedside manner and knowledge. I would highly recommend him!

    Dr. Kovar is a migraine specialist, and will not stop until he finds something that works. As a D.O. he is knowledgeable of how the body works, and seeks some natural resolutions. (Not just a pill pusher) He is kind and compassionate and never rushes through an exam.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Kovar's for two decades. I am so blessed to have such a caring, kind, gentle, and attentive neurologist. Dr. Kovar always takes the time to discuss and explain everything and dedicates time to you when he is treating you. His office staff are very friendly, kind and compassionate. I have struggled with migraines since childhood. Dr. Kovar has stuck by my side and truly treats me with dignity, respect, and compassion.
