Ratings for Dr. Michael P. Bova
Very down to earth staff and doctor. Quick whit and fun mixed with seriousness and health care- fantastic combination. After my doctor had to leave due to health issues this man offered to take his patients on as well. Being a new doctor to me w my complex health issues i was hesitant. After the first ten minutes I felt at ease knowing my health was in the right hands. TY!
I'm a previous patient of Dr Coughlins , Dr Bova took over the practice , I requested my records and they copied maybe an 1/8 of the records ! I have Lupus and Thyroid Cancer and because I requested my records he told me to go to prompt care to refill my meds and he wouldn't see me as a patient , he is clearly in Hippa violation for many reasons ! I'm filing a complaint ASAP !
For routine office visits, this dr is ok. For serious illnesses, he is not. Misdiagnosed me for 5 months and it never occurred to him to refer me to a specialist until I insisted on it. My last 2 visits he just sat there stairing at his paperwork. I could tell he didn't know what to do with me but STILL it didn't occur to him to refer me to a specialist (who correctly diagnosed me in the first 5 minutes of our appointment). I was given strong possibly cancer-causing meds over and over by this dr in the hopes of curing something I didn't have. Because what he thought I had was contagious, he wouldn't even get close enough to examine my skin. He and his staff are always friendly, but for anything more serious than a cold - I would go somewhere else.
Patient of this doctor for many years until an insurance change made me switch. There's a small town feel to his office and the care you get from dr and staff. Professional, caring, gives you as much time as you need for each apt. Do not remember him ever breaking an apt. Wonderful doctor and staff!
