Greats office staff and very prepared for our visit. Dr K was wonderful with my son and explained the x-rays and the type of fracture he had. He also explained the treatment program that he was going to use for his fracture. Dr. K was so explanatory about everything I left knowing everything I needed to. Thanks so much for everything.
I was very impressed with his patience and kindness.
Great explanation, very engaging and very knowledgeable
Brilliant. Really informative, explained exactly what was going on, what was going to happen and what we would be looking at healing wise.
So far everything has gone very good (3 visits and a surgery), Dr Kovachevic, his office, and the staff are top notch professional and very patient oriented.
