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 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

It's more than amazing to me to have known Dr. Kovar for 40 years now. Dr. Kovar is the greatest and has seen me through a number of kidney stones and other health issues, taking care of each with ease and comfort. I've become stronger and healthier with Dr. Kovar's close attention to details, proper care, all my test levels/analysis, and communicating effectively each report… See more

an AVR. Close to five years ago, although I was never a smoker a lingering cough developed. Dr. Kovar followed me closely and a diagnosis of an adenocarcinoma involving two segments of my right lung was established requiring… See more

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

from Edward in CA March 9, 2018 for Gerald M. Kovar, MD

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.
