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.

Dr. Kovar:

National Doctors Day is the perfect time to express my appreciation of you as our doctor and friend.

On December 9, 2016 you diagnosed my symptoms as Guillain-Barre syndrome. You arranged for my admittance at Tarzana Hospital . You also contacted Dr. Dominick who saw me and arranged for treatment starting that same day. I remained in intensive care for 13 days… See more

My wife and I have been with Doctor Kovar before he was with MDVIP.
Because of the excellent caring service he provided that is why we
continued with him into his MDVIP practice.We can't imagine being with
another doctor because of his concern about or well being and health.
Thank you Doctor Kovar. Hope we have many more years together.
