Dr. Janice K Mcgovney has the following 2 specialties

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

If you go here you will never get your refills on time. Then if you ask for them early because you know it takes 1-2 weeks to get it, they get mad at you. Just an overall lousy experience. Office manager was nice but the refill nurse is awful.

I LOVE Dr. McGovney

I ave never had a doctor I like so well. I had multiple minor health issues on my first appointment since it had been several years since I had seen a doctor, and she addressed every one of them. She ordered tests and followed through on each of them until each issue was resolved.

Great doctor

The time she spends with me on follow-up appts is usually pretty short because I'm always better. When I see her for a new ailment however, she listens, asks questions and is very expeditious in getting medicine ordered and scripts filled - a major convenience for me! I always arrive early to appts but I don't have to wait over 5 minutes from my appointed time. My wait in the exam room is maybe 5-10 minutes. I like Dr. McGovney - she's a woman, she understands and relates to how I feel - something I haven't always found to be true with men doctors.

Terrible experience all together. She did not listen at all to what I was asking her and just was in a rush to get in and out of the office. I also had to wait a ludicrous amount of time to get into to see her in the waiting room and then had to wait a ridiculous amount of time after for her to actually come in after I went back to her the patient room.
