A friend recommended Dr Govantes! What a blessing! His office staff is amazing! Friendly, caring and patient. Dr Govantes is a caring thourough doctor who takes his time with each patient! You never feel rushed and you have his full attention as he listens to your needs. It's a rare find these days to find a doctor so focused on you the patient, many times you feel like a number to get in and out as quickly as possible, but not with Dr Govantes!

Dr Govantes always spends an appropriate amount of time with me, listens to concerns, answers questions and gives advice and recommendations as needed.

Dr. G is a down to earth family doctor who treats each patient as though they are his family. My experience with the office staff has been great. I trust his decisions, and as a Registered Nurse, I am picky about my doctors. I could not have made a better choice for my family than Dr. Govantes.

Office is not pt friendly , i tried to call and make my son an apt because of his work hours and they said if he didn't call they would not allow me to make an apt for him, even though I'm the insured. I will go elsewhere, I have never been treated so rude and to think I pay for my insurance.

Dr Govantes has been my primary care doctor for more than 18 years, a caring and friendly man,he not only takes care of you medically but puts you at ease with family oriented stories while conducting his exam. He can make you laugh even when you're feeling down and worried, I think he treats all his patients as though we are his family. He feels genuine empathy for all of us who are having such medical difficulties. I would recommend Dr. Govantes to anyone looking for a doctor who truly cares!!
