    • Kristin Kirkland, WA 11.24.13

      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!

    • Erin Snohomish, WA 08.29.12

      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.
