Dr. McGovern has always been fantastic treating my knees. I would recommend him to anybody.


Knows his stuff!




Great bedside manner


Dr. McGovern is a kind and compassionate professional. He goes the extra mile for his patients. After a very underwhelming experience with Atlantic Orthopedics, he renewed my faith in the profession.


Well I was very nervous about hip replacement before I saw Dr McGovern but after my visit I feel so much better and now realize I'm in great hands with him moving forward and he was positive that he going to get back to feeling good and pain free he really took the time to talk and explain the procedure giving me just such a calm and relaxing feeling during my visit


I have already talked to many about Dr McGovern's welcoming, respectful approach and his willingness to go over details in response to my questions.


I always recommend Dr McGovern. he's the best.


Dr. McGovern knew my history and well-prepared to speak with me about X-rays taken that day. I/we were very impressed by Dr. McGovern and the way he explained information to us and the amount of time he was willing to spend with me. I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. McGovern and Core Physicians being new to the area. Thank you, Dr. McGovern.
