He was so awesome. I was so worried when I injured my eye, but he made me feel very comfortable, making sure it will be fine. And it is getting better definitely. The nurses are super kind too.

-too much waiting after I was in the exam room. The person helping me with basic eye exam and paperwork seemed new because she was a bit slow in processing everything and had to ask questions from other peers often, which created more waiting for me.

I will preface this by saying this did not go well. I wont be returning. He was difficult to understand and aggressive. What I did understand was that he couldn't help me.

What I appreciated most about Dr. Jovkar is that he did not seem rushed, and took time to make sure all of my questions and my mother's questions were answered. He was clear, comforting, and highly professional.

The appointment time given by ZoDoc was off by 30 minutes. The people working at that office (including Dr. Jovkar) are not good listeners.

The appointment was for my dad and he was very pleased with the level of care he received. He will be back for his follow up and is happy to have chosen Dr. Jovkar. On my part, I have to giveprops to the front office staff which coordinated the appointment and reached out to me to confirm the apt by phone and email. They made the relationship between ZocDoc and the office a seamless experience! Great job!
