"I fell on my knee while out of state. I went to the ER when I returned, 2 days after falling and was evaluated and followed up with Reconstructive Orthopedics. I was very pleased with Dr. Kovacs. He seemed genuinely concerned and I followed his instructions. The entire staff was friendly and very pleasant to work with." – Sandra R.
