"I had an unfortunate horrific slip and fall accident at my residence. The fall resulted in myself suffering a shattered and fracture to my wrist. I'm a 39 yr old male who works at UPS as a full-time driver, and on Sunday Jan 4th the most amazing person was introduced into my life. So like many new fathers I was literally feared for my life that I would not be able to provide for my son but once meeting with Dr. Kovacs he brought hope & belief that I will be Ok." – John R.
