Gerald M. Kovar, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My practice is different from traditional primary care practices because it revolves entirely around you - your health, your goals, your needs.  As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I am able to work as your partner to help keep you as healthy as possible for as long as possible.  I have the time to really get to know my patients, and nothing is more rewarding than helping them consistently reach their wellness goals.
