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.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Kovar

from Kenya in CA March 16, 2024 for Gerald M. Kovar, MD

Dr. Kovar has been there for our family for many years and many critical times and it's difficult to name just one that mattered most. He has always provided excellent care and so these are just a few examples. He saved my mother's life when Lyme Disease was fairly new and unknown in California and other doctors dismissed her symptoms; he visited my father at a rehab facility for the two… See more

I have been with Dr. Gerald Kovar since 1980 and have benefited from our long-term relationship and his expertise with my medical history. Dr. Kovar has been through my history of kidney stones and on my third or fourth episode with a kidney stone, sometime in the late ‘80’s, I called him up and said I think I’m experiencing the symptoms of a kidney stone again. Dr. Kovar met me in the… See more

from Lynda in CA February 29, 2024 for Gerald M. Kovar, MD

Dr. Kovar has been my internist for 25 years. Recently Dr. Kovar volunteered to accompany me to a medical test that he knows will be difficult for me. I thought he was kidding, but he was not. In my view, this goes "above and beyond" the norm. This is an example of the level of care that Dr. Kovar extends to his patients. I am extremely grateful for his support in this matter.… See more

from Marshall in CA January 21, 2024 for Gerald M. Kovar, MD

I am an 87 year old retired pediatrician who has weathered an aortic valve replacement, a TIA and two major cancer surgeries to resect asynchronous lung adenocarcinomas. The first procedure was very complicated with unforeseen difficulties. After 6 months of hospitalization I was finally able to be discharged though I required many months of rehabilitative care. Throughout all of this Gerald… See more

Dr Kovar has for the last 35 years been our family doctor. Jerry has never failed to meet the moment no matter the size or scope of the issue. My wife and I credit him and his team with keeping us healthy through his personal care and his concern for us as people and not just as another patient.

from Gary in CA January 19, 2023 for Gerald M. Kovar, MD

Dr. Kovar has been my physician for many years. He has been an amazing doctor but I'm sure most people would say the same thing about their own doctor. What Dr. Kovar has that other doctors are lacking is Sarah Straw, his assistant. Sarah has always taken a personal interest in the practice's patients. She is kind, caring and knows what she's doing. While I in the hospital… See more

Where do i begin;
Dr. Kovar has been my physician for a very long time. He has been so attentive, ready to help with ups and downs of my health, my worries, my well being, it has come to a point that i do not want him to never ever retire. I would like to be in heaven rather than going to another doctor. He has helped me at my most critical moments and always there for me. I can not ask… See more
