I have been to Dr. Covall for both bursitis and for an arthritic knee. He is an exceptional orthopedic physician. He has a new office which is located at 3400 Old Milton PWY, Alpharetta, GA 30005. Their new phone number is: 770-667-4337. His staff is also excellent, which includes Adreinne Elstad, PA and Kelly Welch, RN.

I love Dr Covall, but in the middle of my treatment he is no longer affiliated with Resurgeons Orthopedic. So what do I do from here. I totally distrust his partners. So I have to find someone else to take my case. VERY disappointed!

hip replacement master

I had hip replacement on Nov. 2010 I looked at all of the big name surgeons in the atl. area.I could not be more satisfied with my decision to go with Dr. Covall. he is awesome.If you need a new hip Dr. Covall in my opinion is the best in ATLANTA.Recovery time was about 3 Weeks and his support staff could not have been more proffesional. The hospital is also highly rated with a low % of staff infection.

Dr. Covall well worth the wait!

Dr. Covall replaced my right knee in 2006. The operation was a success and I had no complications. He has the best bedside manner of any surgeon or doctor on the planet. It may sound over the top,but once you meet him you will know what I mean. If you decide to make an appointment with him bring something to read because the wait may be longer than expected. DO NOT LET THIS STOP YOU! You are waiting because Dr. Covall tends to put his patients first, and that means listening to ALL of your concerns. He always takes time to hear what his patients have to say and he gives you honest and straight forward answers. I have talked to other patients Of his and we all agreed that he is well worth the wait
