6 Patient Reviews for
Dr. Koprivanac

"All business. Friendly and answered all my questions. Definitely knows his stuff! Cleveland Clinic is a large place, so he definitely focuses on the excellence of the surgery itself more than relationship building with the patient. But that is not to say at all that he’s not approachable or friendly because he is and I was joking around with him too. Really, I think all the surgeons at Cleveland Clinic seem great."
