Oh yes, we tell everyone...


Having health issues is the most difficult thing to face, dr McGovern make me feel like he understood my condition and explain everything I need it to know. His knowledge and experience made me feel confident about doing the surgery. His team is amazing, X-ray and Nicole.


Seemed confident and concerned.


Great skill, great experience, great everything. Please go see him. He's just a wonderful doctor and a wonderful person. A plus rating.




I recommend this provider to anyone, my friends, my family, just acquaintances. He is exceptional.


Yes, actually he this was a very successful ending with my knee surgery And I would recommend to him to anyone. Thank you.


I tell anyone who will listen how impressed I am with Dr. McGovern. He replaced my right hip 7 years ago, and now my left hip is in the same condition and it will be replaced in November. Since the first surgery, which went fabulously, I have retired and moved 2 1/2 hours north but I kept my insurance although it's expensive solely for the purpose of being able to keep Dr. McGovern in my network. I knew my left hip was failing and that surgery would probably be in my future and I wouldn't trust it to anyone else.


I think he's a good doctor.


If they need an orthopedic doctor, he is the one!
