Dr. Jeffrey P Mcgovern has the following 3 specialties
- Critical Care Medicine
Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

My entire family is treated by Dr. McGovern. My mother is treated for end stage emphysema thru the main office. The front desk staff tend to be rather brusk in manner but the nursing staff and Dr. McGovern are absolutely wonderful! He takes extra time with Mom to be sure she understands her condition and to answer her questions. He even gets down to her eye level by sitting on a short step stool to converse with her! (Major plus for this effort on his part!) My husband and I are treated in the Sleep Lab for sleep apnea. This staff is PHENOMENAL!!! My husband's condition is pretty straight forward and easily treated, however, mine is not so much. Dr. McGovern is very knowledgeable and caring regarding my care and has even called me personally to discuss my care several times! I would highly recommend Dr. McGovern to anyone in need of his expertise!
Connie the receptionist is unbelievably rude. I faxed over a request for my medical records. I called a week later asking when I could pick them up but Connie said she doesn't have my request. I said if it has been lost I can fax it again. She said, "I don't appreciate that comment. I DID NOT SAY IT WAS LOST."! She asked me if I had received a call saying they are ready. I said no, if I had received a call saying they are ready I wouldn't be calling to see if they are ready. Again, she said, "I don't appreciate that comment!" Then she put me on hold and said "You already spoke with someone!". I said yes, but that was a week ago, and I'm calling to see if they are ready to be picked up. She said coldly, "We have 30 days by law to copy records.". I asked if that is the actual time it takes for them. She hung up! She should not be allowed to deal with the public.
