We have loved our visits with Dr. Koves. She has a great bedside manner, and makes both our child and us feel very comfortable. We really appreciate her approach and could not recommend her more highly!
ErinSnohomish, WA08.29.12
Dr. Koves was very professional, thorough, and concise as she explained potential causes and findings from my daughter's tests. At the same time, she had a very calm and welcoming demeanor which truly helped put my daughter at ease throughout our visit. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of pediatric endocrinological care.
