I had an excellent experience. He had reviewed my previous lab tests and procedures, performed a brief hands-on exam, discussed my situation, and answered the question of whether I needed further follow-up for a lung nodule. Getting his opinion on this was the purpose of the visit.

Everything was very good, except I discovered that the perscription I had told the staff I did not take anymore was still on my chart and the one I did take had been deleted. I called the office and told the receptionist and she was going to let someone know and/or have someone call me back. That did not happen. I called my family doctor's office and they took care of it.

Dr. Kovacs was excellent and very thorough. He treated me with dignity and respect and made sure that I understood my medical condition. He showed concern with helping me get the care I need quickly. Hats off to Dr Kovacs! He is the best!
