Dr. Magovern is an influencer. He influences people's lives for the better. He is professional yet personable, a rare combination for a surgeon. He has treated my shoulder and knee with excellent results. And he has done a great job for my friends I have referred to him;)

Dr. Magovern performed surgery on a broken arm I have had for over tewenty years (non union) that never healed properly. Not only was the four hour surgery a total success, but I experienced no pain throughout the process because he had suggested a nerve block pump as part of the recovery ... it was magic! I give my highest form of endorsement & Five Star rating for his total professionalism and follow through - he is the best!!!

Dr. Magovern is the best in his field. He's not only talented, but he's friendly and runs on time. I have the privilege of not only being his patient, but also working in one of the hospitals where he operates. Never have I seen a post operative complication with his work, his patients are discharged home on time and his work is flawless. I can say without hesitation that there isn't a more qualified surgeon to treat myself and my children.

Dr. Magovern was rude to my (elderly) mother and did not take the time to listen to her. He made it clear he just wanted to get in and out of the room as quickly as possible. My mother is still in pain following Dr. Magovern's treatment, but feels that she has nowhere to go for help. We are in the process of trying to find another doctor.

Dr. Magovern was great with my 7 yr old that broke his arm. We felt very comfortable to ask questions and confident in his skills. I would highly recommend him to family and friend.

Due to an accident, he performed surgery on me. Dr. Magovern is one of the best elbow and shoulder specialist in the South Bay. He is very knowledgeable and I am very grateful for his expertise..
