5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

58 Year Old Hoping to Improve Profile and Remove Fat from the Neck Area Under the Jawline. Oakbrook, IL

Over the past 7 years, I have seen Dr. Kovak for laser treatment of acne scars, liposuction of the neck/jowls, and for injections of Sculptra, Botox, Radiesse, and Juvederm (not all at the same time--lol). He has a kind manner and an artistic eye! He is realistic in outcomes and a great listener. He does not push any "interventions" on his patients. His staff is very friendly, competent, and knowledgeable in all procedures offered. The office is modern, beautiful, and equipped with state-of-the-art technologies! I highly recommend Dr. Kovak to family and friends, and many have utilized his skills.

Misleading experience

Be sure to ask to see the syringe of dermal filler you're being injected with. I had been a patient of Dr. Kovak for over two years. The last time I went in for a touch up I asked to double check the type of filler I was going to receive and discovered that the previous two sessions I was injected with a filler I requested NOT to receive. I decided not to return. The staff and doctor are great...
