Dr. Rovak makes sure to give you all options and prefers to start with a simple suggestion rather than jump into surgery. I loved his sense of humor and how he talks to his patients in layman terms. Very comfortable environment. The staff, in general, are very personable. Not to mention there is no wait time so I appreciate that with my schedule.

Dr Rovak and everyone in the office is wonderful! Very professional and they are very organized. Was able to check in online before my appointments and pay my copay and was always called back immediately after arriving. Can not say how convenient and quick they made every single visit. Never had a better smoother experience at ANY Dr office ever . They respect your time which is rare. I have sat waiting at other Dr appointments for literally an hour! Not the case here. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a surgeon.

Jason Rovak thoroughly evaluated my wrist injury MRI, X-rays, and examined it physically. He performed a pain relieving injection procedure to help me get back to golf, gym, and life per usual as I’m a very active 42 year old male and father. Will definitely be using him again if ever needed! Thank you to Jason and his team for a job well done!Thanks,Pete S.

Dr Rovak listened to what I had to say and addressed any questions or concerns. He also took the time to explain the cause of my issue and provided multiple options, with the pros and cons of each. I would highly recommend him to any family or friends. My wife had an issue a few years ago, and Dr Rovak did a great job, and she is experiencing zero issues today.
