June 21, 2018 Dr. Dovec is awesome as a physician/surgeon/person! Very professional, caring, helpful and informative. I am very pleased with my experience with her and the group. I do wish that they had later hours for appointments, but that is not going to make me stop seeing this provider. [...]
June 19, 2018 Dr Dovec and nutritionist Jana Wolff deliver a wonderful program that makes a complicated thing simple to understand. The focus on the grams of nutrients each day vs calories makes it so much easier to navigate. The positive energy they exude makes you feel like you can do it. In my case, doing a revision can be very embarrassing. But they were always positive and helped me figure out where I've gone wrong in the past.
June 10, 2018 Was a bit wary of procedure, but left the appointment feeling secure and unafraid as she came across as quite knowledgeable and competent.
June 8, 2018 Very professional, informative and friendly. Always available when needed.
June 5, 2018 Dr. E Dovec is the best. She came highly recommended, and I was sure she was overhyped, but, no, she and her team are just as wonderful as everyone has said.
May 28, 2018 Dr. Dovec is a passionate, caring professional who has inspired much confidence in me. She is accessible & down to Earth. I would recommend her to anyone!
May 10, 2018 Dr. Dovec is very caring and makes you feel that you are special. COMP does 100 surgeries a week, but you wouldn't know it by the way they treat you. Being 1 of 100 is like being a little fish in a big pond, but the staff, including Dr. Dovec, makes you feel like a big fish in a small pond.
April 30, 2018 Dr. Dovec was very informative & equally impressed that I was prepared and did my research on situation.
March 29, 2018 Dr. Dovec is the epitome of a talented, successful, well-rounded, professional woman. I don't think she will go anywhere but up and she is already a strong ivory tower. She is personal and professional and I'm so glad she is my surgeon. The hardest part of being her patient is that I have to share her.
March 1, 2018 Dr Dovec is so very personable, she is awesome
February 8, 2018 Dr. Dovec is really nice & she explained everything very well. The best!!
January 25, 2018 very helpful
January 18, 2018 Dr. Dovec is a game changer! I am a nurse and work with a lot of doctors and Dr. Dovec is above the cutting edge. I have also attending the bariatric sessions with [...], [...] and [...] and none of them even come close to Dr. Dovec. Dr. Dovec is personable and understands the patients needs such as creating the Facebook page for immediate responses in lieu of playing phone tag and emails via MyChart. Within 5 minutes of meeting Dr. Dovec, I had already made my decision to have my surgery with her. Dr. Dovec's competitors are all doing it wrong, she is a keeper!
January 11, 2018 the attention to detail and organization is the best I have ever experience with a doctor and their staff. they have a great system of obtaining information, speaking to insurance company and getting every detail prepared ahead of time. It made the appointment very smooth.
November 14, 2017 Dr. Dovec, was amazing, she exemplified professional courtesy and genuine care for her patients. She is warm and welcoming; she takes care to explain every detail of your treatment/procedure.
November 9, 2017 I really liked the doctor. however the one on one time was very brief and felt rushed.
November 4, 2017 Dr. Dovec is fabulous!!!
October 24, 2017 Dr. Dovak is Amazing! She wants us to be successful and achieve the results we look for. When I have had issues, she listens and gives me great advice on moving forward.
