Best care I have received


Dr McGovern and his team have shown me so much kindness and respect over the past year, which was reflected in the treatment I received. They got me through a very difficult surgery and a long recovery, and responded promptly every time I called with a question. I heard wonderful things about Dr McGovern long before I met him, and it was all true! He shows compassion, genuine caring, possesses a true gift for listening, and makes that your question is thoroughly answered before he moves on. Even in a practice as busy as this, he makes you feel like you're his only patient! I would highly recommend them to anyone!


I would turn my friends and family that he was a very very good doctor kind and thorough. And I'm very pleased with him and I've had more than one surgery with him.


I told my family that my appointment with Dr. Mcgovern exceeded my expectations. He is an excellent communicator, and explained what I'm sure must have been routine info, as if he was pleased to do so. I'll not hesitate to sched. with him again if need be.
