Dr. McGovern is a very kind, patient man with great knowledge about his specialty. He explains things in great detail so you understand and puts no pressure on you to make a quick decision. I'm am very pleased with my recent change to this Facility.




If thoughtful comprehensive and positive interaction with experienced medical professionals is important to you then this is the team for you.


Excellent, excellent, listener. Great at communication, explains everything, shows in detail what he's talking about with some of the models that he had in his office. It was an exceptional visit. He's an exceptional physician.


He is thorough Dr. McGovern is thorough, compassionate, understanding and on top of that a wonderful surgeon. I've had 3 surgeries on my right leg using Dr. McGovern, and I'm sure I will have one more on my left in the year to come, but I will say he is by far my most favorite doctor. Thank you.




I have previously, and will continue, to highly recommend Tom McGovern


It is a well run, efficient office with courteous people, and Dr. McGovern is superb.


Dr McG listens, and explains what he sees as the problem and a 'solution'. He sits when he discusses your case.


listens, explains, good choice
