Dr. Kovacs was personable, friendly, supportive, and totally easy to talk to. She makes herself available to her patients whenever they need her, and she herself communicates through an online portal. I would recommend Dr. Kovacs without any hesitation.

Absolutely phenomenal doctor. Doctor who tells you as it is with the most care and compassion someone can have. It’s been 2 years as Dr. Kovacs is my OBGYN and I can tell that she’s one of a kind. Cannot recommendhighly enough. Easy to schedule, super responsive to patient portal and voice massages.

I am a new patient of Dr. Kovacs', and I found her super nice and understanding. I was veryyy anxious and nervous beforehand, but she took the time to ask why I felt that way and did what she could tomake me feel calm and comfortable. I very much appreciated her caring nature as it made all the difference. I had to wait around 30+ minutes to see her, but her attentiveness during the appointment made it totally worth it. The rest of the staff was also very friendly and helpful. They turned an appointment I was dreading into something not so bad at all.

I was told that my visit was covered by insurance and would not have to pay and a month later I get a bill from the office and when I asked what the bill was for since I only came infor a preventetive care visit which is covered by insurance and should not cost anything, I was told it was because I asked questions during the appointment. First of all its silly to charge a patient solely for asking questions and second if you begin asking me about a topic and I reply I definitely should not be charged for replying with an inquiry. And on top of that with no warning whatsoever that asking questions was going to cost me.

Dr. Kovacs was friendly, straight forward and put me right at ease. Going to the gynecologist is never something I look forward to, but I know I won't dread future appointments with her (I hated seeing my previous gynecologist). She waspatient and listened to my concerns about my medical history, and she was very knowledgable when I asked about different birth control options. I cannot recommend her highly enough--I'm so thankful to have found a doctor that actually listens to and talks to me rather than brushing me off.

I got out of my appointment with Dr. Kovacs minutes ago and couldn’t wait to tell the world how phenomenal she is. I’ve never had such a kind, personable, and efficient physician in my life—she even made a Pap smear seemenjoyable!! I’ll never go to another gynecologist while she’s around.

I'm going to preface this by stating that I suffer from severe anxiety, and I have experienced some sexual trauma in my past. I have avoided seeing an OB-GYN for years because of this. Dr. Kovacs made me feel more comfortablethan any doctor ever has, and that's saying a lot. She is personable, empathetic, and genuine. Even though I was shaking and visibly upset, she managed to bring me down a few notches and comfort me. She also made it very clear that she was available to contact at almost any time. I would recommend her to anyone, and I hope to make visits with her a regular occurrence in the future.

Very nice and very thorough and informative physician. I’ve never had a doctor spend so much time with me before. We talked about my medical history for a while and other information I had never been educated on by any otherdoctor I’ve seen before. I’m very truly impressed. This is a confident and very knowledgeable physician. I just moved here from Florida, so it was nice to be at ease with a new physician. I’m hoping to possibly expand my family in the near future and I am confident she will not only be concerned about my health but also have wonderful feedback to share with me.

Dr. Kovacs was extremely caring and approachable. She took the time to explain any tests given and payed attention to detail in medical history to provide the best solution to a given problem. I was a bit tentative before my firstappointment, but was completely at ease once she stepped into the room. Also her medical assistant Cat was really sweet and efficient, and her staff was very helpful.

Good, knowledgeable, and professional. She tried to split a procedure into multiple visits (i.e. told me to come back for it the next morning) for no apparent or disclosed reason. After I pushed back, she was flexible and willing to do it all at once.

Dr. Kovacs is extremely considerate and very knowledgable. She diagnosed the problem that I had been suffering from since almost 2 months in just less than half an hour, and took immediate action towards it. She is very gentle, and atthe same time very honest and professional. To be honest, I have never had such a smooth, caring and satisfying OB-GYN experience ever in my life before. She made me aware of my own body so well in just 30 min that I never was aware of before. I am keeping her as my primary-care OB-GYN! :)

I have had a negative experience with another doctor in the past, so came into this appointment with some reservations. Dr. Kovacs, however, put me right at ease, as did the assistant who welcomed me. She explained things to me thoroughly,and I left feeling not only safe and comfortable, but empowered regarding my health. I look forward to seeing her again.
