Linda Marco RN., Creve Coeur/St. Louis, Mo.

I am a patient of Dr. Kovac from St. Louis, Mo. ,. I had been one of his infertile patients, and i remember when Dr. Kovac reached out his hand to me to assist me to sit up after examining me and said "Congratulations", I nearly fell off the table I was soooo excited!!!! Approximately eight months later he delivered my beautiful most precious baby girl "Jenna Michele Marco" . That was 39 yrs. ago August 6th, 1977. To this day I remember Dr. Kovac with great fondness in my heart! I will never ever forget him! And every year on Dec. 17th, I thank God for the "gift" of Dr. Kovac., because this is the day of "his" birthday!! 😄💝

I was very please

Dr. Kovac did a pelvic reconstruction surgery on me in 2010. I have been very pleased with the outcome. He is all business, but that is what I wanted.. not an average doctor that had a great bedside manner.

Thank you Dr. Kovac!

I had such a great experience with Dr. Kovac. He completed a total vaginal hysterectomy and my uterus was over 1000 grams. I thought for sure he would not be successful and that I would end up needing an abdominal hysterectomy, but he did it! My surgery was 1 week ago and I feel great!!! Dr. Kovac is retiring and that is sad for the many future patients that need his expertise! Hope they are able to find someone as good as Dr. Kovac!

Worst medical experience in my life.

I, too, only saw a fellow prior to my first surgery w/ Kovac. He then talked to me a few minutes + scheduled surgery for two prolapse problems. Unknowingly, he repaired only one, albeit the worst prob.My condition brought about a great comfort for a time until the other problem reared its' ugly head. I felt bad thinking I would be one of the first women to ruin his self proclaimed exc record. But no, he then told me he never fixed my second problem and it had now "caused a third" problem. We sched another surgery. At my pre-op appt., the fellow drew a sketch of the pending two surg's.I would be having. The anes. asked me on surg. day what I was having done that day. I told them the two surg. repairs. When Kovac saw me prior to surg., I asked him to promise he wd fx both probs. He promised HE WOULD. Surg was completed and while uncomfortable, I was happy it was finally completed. Or was it? I started to feel different "dn there". I checked and felt my insides were collapsing. I saw him + he said all was fine. I asked him if he was sure. He said "I hv no reason to tell you anything but the truth". I then saw another dr. He told me the truth. Kovac had shortened my vagina by one-half!!!!! And, he ONLY fixed one of my problems! The hospital said it was my fault for signing the consent form!!! That I didn"t truly understand what he was to do! (I am a former nurse and, in my file, there should be a "fellow" drawing about what he was to do.) Do you get the picture about why should run, not walk away from this man?

Horrible experience! Dr. Kovac placed a bladder sling using mesh and pelvis bone screws which he siad was one of the most successful procedure for stress incontinence. I developed problems immediately and had to practically argue with him that something was wrong. After 9 months of pain, misery and his poor bedside manner I switched Drs-----world of difference and complete fix!
