I've been seeing Dr. Covner for over 15 yrs. and I'm very pleased that I've him as my primary doctor. Yes, you don't see him on your appointment time, but that is 'cause he listens to you and spent his time explaining what your problems. He does not rush you, not like some doctors (20 mins. and out the door) Yes, his bedside manners is not that great, but he is such a caring and comforting doctor--and that's all it matters to me.
