I got the troubling diagnosis of melanoma. Although I was told that it was "in situ," it was a nerve wracking experience. Dr. Kovacs and his staff put me at ease and I felt confident in his expertise and competence throughout the three day long slow MOHs procedure. I had my follow up visit today. The original incision was quite large yet the scar is healing beautifully. I highly recommend Dr. Kovacs.

My husband and I voice this rating in tandem! Dr. Kovacs has been our dermatologist for several years. We hold utmost respect for him, not only as a physician, but as a wonderful human being. Dr. Kovacs is a dynamic, personable, compassionate, dedicated, and highly skilled physician and surgeon. He continually provides expertise, precision, and calmness, during yearly skin checks to surgical procedures. He calls with biopsy results, quickly, and checks on you, after hours, following a surgical procedure. His staff is kind, caring, and efficient. We highly recommend Dr. Kovacs. He is outstanding!
