If I could give Dr. Steven Covici ten stars I absolutely would! I’ve always had droopy eyelids that made me look old, tired and sad. I was also born with atrocious, dark purple circles under my eyes that made me look like the Bride of Frankenstein. Dr. Covici is an incredibly intuitive, understanding, compassionate, and sincerely empathetic person who possesses a high level of emotional intelligence. Dr. Covici absolutely deserves my upmost respect and admiration. He thoroughly explained the procedure, and made absolutely sure I had realistic expectations in terms of potential results. Dr. Covici’s staff was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and supportive. The $150 consultation fee does go towards the cost of a procedure (incredibly generous!), which was NOT the case at other clinics I contacted. The procedure itself only took an hour, and I am beyond grateful for the results. I think it’s amazing that we have such a wonderful doctor in the area, and I almost wish my PCP was just as fabulous. Honestly, I would not trust anyone else and I feel incredibly lucky to have found such a great surgeon. ~Dr. Covici, you will probably never read this, but I want to thank you again for doing such phenomenal work, really eliminating my dark under eye circles that I was so self conscious about, and making me look brighter and more youthful. I am beyond appreciative, and my only regret is I did not have it done ten years earlier.
When I called Dr. Covici for an appointment, I immediately felt like I was going to a facility that cared about Me. His receptionist was so thorough, with answers to all my questions. She even took the time to give me complete directions to the office. Meeting Dr. Covici for the first time was a wonderful experience. He is definitely a most caring, articulate doctor. My minor surgery was a complete success. I look and feel so much better. I recommend him to you, if you are looking for a caring and knowledgeable doctor. Thank you Dr. Covici and thank your staff for me also.
Dr Covici is a truly caring and exceptionally skilled doctor with excellent manner of patient education and relationship. Everything about my surgery was explained in great detail and his staff is outstanding in their caring approach. His skill as a surgeon is amazing, he is a true artist at his work and pays attention to every detail. My eyes post surgery look incredible and my peripheral vision is restored.
