Dr. McGovern is a a very skilled and caring specialist with excellent diagnostic skills, whom I would highly recommend to those with fertility difficulties. Having seen other doctors who don't have the time or patience for you, both my husband and I were quite impressed at Dr. McGovern's sincerity, knowledge and personal dedication to each of his patients. To illustrate, at every appointment, he took the time to answer all of my questions and concerns with patience and interest, no matter how improbable my anxieties may have been (and some were). Also unlike my experience with other doctors to whom you talk through nurses or office staff for important matters, he personally called me several times to give me important test results or to discuss some worrisome symptoms I was experiencing. Thanks to his keen clinical skills, he was able to accurately diagnose our issue by piecing together different suspicious bits of info which may have eluded other doctors that are not so well trained or detail oriented. The only negative was the long wait which could run up to an hour, at times, but given the personal attention he provides his patients, the wait time is understandable and preferred considering the alternative. As we are now thankfully expecting a baby, we sadly no longer see Dr. McGovern, but are very appreciative for not only his expert medical care but also for the kind and caring manner in which he and all of his staff treated us.
Husband and I were ttc for more than 2 years and we finally went to URA (just browsed on the internet and this was the closest fertility clinic).I was so impressed with the methodical approach with which they see patients.My first appointment with Dr.McGovern lasted for about 45 mins at the end of which he seemed pretty convinced that getting me pregnant should not be a problem based on the reports that he had in hand.The staff at URA is awesome. Everyone is very nice to talk to. They handle you very gently and are very understanding of what you are going through.They do a thorough and organized set of tests at the end of which, they would be able to pretty much pinpoint what the issue is. Now depending on how difficult is that problem to be fixed, it might take a while for couples to get successful.I got pregnant in my second cycle with my first IUI attempt. I was sad to leave that place but was told by the URA staff that I should consider myself lucky to leave that place so soon because it meant that I didnt have major problems.To all those who are close to this area and who are having infertility issues, I would advise you to please visit this place. These guys are awesome!!Dr.McGovern is the best, but having had the opportunity to interact with the other doctors there as well I would say, everyone there is very good.If, God forbid, I fail to conceive naturally the second time as well, I'm not gonna think twice before rushing to URA!God bless everyone there!
