We personally Love Dr Mikovic, But his front staff is highly incompetent or they just don't care. We sat for almost 1 1/2 hrs for an appt while the technician waited for us in the back. If you call and ask for your RX on the 30th day give all your information DOB etc. they will say, "hold on" the put you into the VoiceMail. What is the point? But, you will not get your RX, they will tell you "you should still have enough". Are you kidding me?? Also, Don't ask to whom you are speaking to, they won't tell you. This makes dealing with the entire office extremely difficult. Long waits, no explanation.

The very best. Dr is very honest, charged me a third what I paid for an epideral in Iowa 10 years ago. I came in unbearable pain and left with no pain at all. Epiderals last a long time. Thank you Dr. Telling all my friends with pain to come see you.

Although Dr. Mahaney (Dr. Micovic's Partner) did the surgery for my pain pump and is my regular pain management Doctor, I have seen Dr. Micovic many times. He is very personable, excellent bedside manner and GENUINELY cares about his patients. It is nearly impossible to find such great care with ethical and compassionate Doctors who are all about the patient's well-being, not seeing or treating you as an income. If you have chronic pain issues, this is the ONLY place to go!

Dr. Micovic is a caring knowledgeable doctor. He listens carefully and takes his time with you. He has a fantastic staff. When he is not there and you need help they are beyond helpful and caring. I went to another pain management physician who made me feel as if I was making things up. He had to tell me stories about how he handles pain. That is not why you go to a pain management physician. I highly recommend this doctor and his staff. Thank goodness they left Lee Memorial Park and now they have Their own offices. If you were a patient at Lee Memorial and the past left them through millennium physicians group.

I have a number of issues with my back. My orthopedist, Dr Kagan, recommended I see Dr. Micovic. Of course, I was scared but had my first interview with Dr Micovic and he was prompt, kind, respectful, very informative, explained everything he was going to do to treat me thoroughly. He is highly intelligent and informative. He was not pressured for time, answered all my questions patiently. I would recommend Dr Micovic to anyone and everyone! You'll not be disappointed. Thank you, Penny Jiudittta

I wish there was an option to choose ZERO stars. This kind of doctor thinks he rules the world and his crap don't stink. I have been in hospital for over a week following a treatment plan his colleague and I had. Next thing I know, this guy comes in my room and takes away my breakthrough pain med without explanation and walked out. VERY unprofessional and AWFUL bedside manner; everything I said went through one ear and out the other. DO NOT waste your time, energy, and money!

He's a puppet for Lee Medical group. He is uncaring, uncompassionate, cruel, sadistic. He will abandon you when you need him the most. I did all the test he said I needed pain management. For 2 years he treated me. When things got worse for me, he cut my meds by 50% then said he was not going to treat me anymore. He is a coward and cruel. Don't go to this doctor you will be treated bad

I've been seeing Dr. Iconic for almost two years I don't know what I would have done without him. My issues are unusual but he has been able to make the best of my situation. I recommend him very highly.
