I wouldn’t recommend. She essentially spent the whole appointment trying to convince me that I need to be more sexually active. It was unpleasant and I felt violated. It’s been three years since I visited her and I haven’t visited another OBGYN since then.

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.
