Dr kovacs is professional, kind and quick (when it comes to paps which no one wants to do). Yet she takes her time understanding your medical history and concerns. I could not give her a higher recommendation!!!

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.

I left her office in tears because I felt very judged. As a healthcare professional in a very vulnerable field, she should be more sensitive of all backgrounds her patients may come from. Even though she had several glowing reviews andis an apparent wizard at IUD insertions, I am choosing to find a different, and hopefully A LOT more empathetic, OBGYN.

I waited 45mins to finally see doctor Kovacs. She was very polite until I started asking questions about a certain condition. Even though she didn't believe I had it, she could be more polite answering the questions. It was when Iasked if she could do a STD testing that the situation got really awkward. I checked with the assistant prior and she said I could have it done but Dr. Kovacs made it very uncomfortable for me when I asked her to do a STD testing. She questioned me why I wanted one. I believe that a patient shouldn't be required to give detailed information about their sexual encounters in order to get a STD testing. What if the person was sexually abused and didn't want to talk about it? What if they have an alternative life style and multiple partners? It doesn't matter. If someone asks for a STD testing , the professional thing to do would be testing them, whatever the reason might be. Seeing an OBGYN is embarrassing enough as it is, having a professional being rude to you for asking a common STD testing is unacceptable.

Dr. Kovacs was very nice. It took a while for me to get in to see her but everything went pretty quickly after that. She was friendly while also being a straight shooter which is my preference for an OBGYN. I will definitely see her again.

Dr. Kovacs is incredibly professional and knowledgeable, while maintaining excellent bedside manner. She will listen to all your concerns and answers all your questions about your care. I moved to the Boston area after having the same gynecologistfor over 5 years and was very hesitant about having to go to someone new. I have been a patient for 3 years and fully intend to continue as such!
