Wish he also treated other areas, like Back or Spine or Legs !!

He gets to the point immediately after diagnosing the issue. And, appropriately does not treat it, if he can't diagnose or replicate it. Won't go elsewhere, once you visit him.

Beware

If you are seeing him about surgery, please get a second opinion, or ever better, see a different doctor. He took advantage of me in a desperate state of mind and performed surgery on me without looking at test results. Every time I was in his office I was practically pushed out the door and he did not inform me that the surgery could make the pain worse. A year later, the pain is 5 times worse and I have no options for relief.

Manager

Putting your life in someone else's skills (prioritizing, decision making, up to date on techniques and over all experience) is so very hard to do. Knowing that one wrong move, one wrong decision could change my life forever. I put my trust in Dr. Kovachevich. He's wonderful! He's quite simply the Best. He care's.

Mallet Finger

I hurt my finger playing basketball. I ended up scheduling an appointment with Dr. K (that's what they call him) based on a recommendation from a friend. I was able to schedule an appointment quickly, and waited for a very short time in the waiting room. The clinical staff was great, and the person who met with me before the doctor, asked good questions and listened and documented my answers. Dr. K was very personable and I immediately liked him. After I told him the story of my injury he pulled his Ipad out and showed me an image of a mallet finger (which was his diagnosis). It was really nice to see something like that in the office. He suggested therapy and wanted me to follow up with him in 6 weeks. The therapists in his office were great, and after about 8 weeks of treatment my finger is just like it was before my injury. I would recommend Dr. K to anyone!
