If you ever need a knee replacement go to the god of surgeons Dr McGovern and no one else!!


Great 1st impression. He was very knowledgeable and was very helpful in explaining what the best approach was.


Dr McGovern was highly recommended to me by a few of his patients, and I would highly recommend him to anyone


I would definitely recommend him


He's the best!


I've already recommended Dr McGovern who are now on his patient list and some of which have also completed hip and knee replacements and couldn't be happier!!


I told friends and family that this man is the best there is in the XR area and there's no need to go to Boston or any other place to get a hip replacement done.


That Dr. McGovern is a very kind, compassionate person who truly listens and cares about his staff and patients.
