Dr. Covner was instrumental in changing/saving my life. He was harsh when required, caring when needed. I am where I am today because of the interest he took in treating me.

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.

I would not recomend Bruce covner to a family member or friend

Posted on February 27th, 2010

I waited an hour for this doctor and I only spent a few minutes with him. He greeted me un professonly and i was not Satisfied with the visit. He did not explain a thing to me he just wrote a prescription and left the nurse to answear questions he should have answered. The nurse said that this was common because of his dis organization. She had to find the doc to answer my questions making me wait another 30 min. She then came back to tell me what he said. Overall I would say this man should retire if he doesn't like being a doc.
