Dr. Kovack is the best!! After I got the run around from another ortho surgeon he told me that I needed shoulder surgery if I wanted to continue with my active lifestyle. I'm happy with the results and with the physical therapists Ryan and Hannah as well.

My entire experience at Hand & Microsurgery Associates was incredible. I was referred to Dr. Kovack by my GP for discomfort in my shoulder. Check-in was easy via the digital self-check-in stations (a friendly associate was on hand to assist if needed) and my wait time was less than 5 minutes in the waiting room, and in the exam room I was seen in under 5 minutes as well. Dr. Kovack and his team were courteous and professional. I felt as if each member of the team heard my concerns and they took great care in determining exactly the type and intensity of the discomfort I was experiencing, what activities cause aggravation, and a baseline of my range of motion. Nothing was assumed and they treated me like a unique individual. During my 6-week follow up I was enthusiastically greeted by name and everyone involved in my treatment remembered why I was there, my medical history, etc. I'm happy to report that there was no need for surgery on my shoulder, but if that ever changes, Dr. Kovack is my first choice.

I recently had reverse shoulder replacement surgery and am extremely pleased with the results. Dr. Kovack is definitely the surgeon to go to if you’re having shoulder problems. He is thorough, straightforward and extremely skilled. He is a very good listener and communicator. I wholeheartedly recommend him and his staff.

Great office! All staff members are very helpful and knowledgeable about procedures. I was having a lot of issues with dislocations and after meeting with Dr. Kovack I was able to finally feel comfortable with a surgeon to preform the operation I needed and could not be happier with the results.

I have been a patient of Dr Kovack for several years..He is the best doctor I have ever had take care of me and my shoulders, knees and my continual arthritis. He has always listened to my concerns and has taken care of what I needed to keep working for many years. I finally got to the place where I needed both shoulders reverse total.shoulder replacement. My only concern was if I would get back my full range of motion, and, yes, I got it back. His staff has always been good in working with me and my health insurance. I trust Dr Kovack on all decisions that has been made for me and always will. Thank you Debbie

Absolutely wonderful experience with Dr Kovack and Matt! My first experience was with him was in 2017. After several attempts to avoid a TKA I had my rt knee TKA. In November I had my lt knee TKA. He is very knowledgeable, compassionate, and is extremely concerned about post op results. Highly recommend him.
