Dr. Kathleen McGowan has the following 1 specialty

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

One Star

I visited Dr. McGowan and never encountered such discourteous behavior before from any medical doctor. I was astonished as to how a doctor whose main purpose is to serve people could be so utterly uncivil and bad mannered. Surely, if she dislikes dealing with the public that much, she should venture into a new career that does not require interpersonal communications.
