I saw Dr. Kovaleski for nearly 2 years. I was referred to him by an allergist when I had a chronic rash all over my body. I had previously seen an ER doctor for symptoms I was displaying while on vacation and he recommended seeing an allergist and also asking for my "complements" to be tested. The ER doctor temporarily put me on 4 different antihistamines to keep the rash down while I could seek treatment with the proper doctor. The allergist told me what I was experiencing was not an allergy b

Great Doctor. No nonsense approach. Listened to me, treated me very appropriately, was engaging and asked intelligent questions about my symptoms. Take the negative comments on the other reviews with a grain of salt. This doctor is very sharp, as in smart and well informed. Could not be happier with my first visit. PS His wife’s art work beautifully adorns the walls. No burlesque pictures on the walls as another reviewer had suggested, just a supportive husband. I highly recommend him.

Very good doctor. You may have to ask for explanation if you don't understand something. But he will take the time to explain if you ask.

Knowledgeable and professional. Bed side manner is somewhat sterile but he is one of the top doctors in the entire state. Definitely knows his stuff. Extremely thorough and meticulous also. Staff is very friendly & explains everything very well. In beginning it is a little harder to schedule an appointment because he only sees 1 new patient a day. Once you get past that his schedule is much more flexible. You must be there 1 hr early the 1st Appt. but expect to be there for 4 hrs minimum.
