Dr McGowan is a very caring doctor. He takes time to listen to the patient, answer any questions and never feel rushed.

I would feel confident referring anyone to Dr McGowan. He helped me so much with my chronic back pain. My life has gone from sitting hours on end, not wanting to aggreviate my back, and now, I go and do things all the time. I'm finally enjoying my retirement.

Dr McGowan is a highly specialized doctor who takes his patient's issues personal. He is a very pleasant doctor, so committed to addressing patients issues on the level a patient can understand. His friendly attitude keeps patients comfortable. I was very satisfied with his because he took time to explain in details what my issues were, the options on treatments and took time to address all the questions I had. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr McGowan to my family and friends.
