I have been seeing Dr. McGowan for many years now. He is a great man and an awesome surgeon. I have always had good luck with his care. He even saved my life twice when I died on the operating table no fault in any way his. He has always tried different things and surgery is always the last thing he does. I have never had a bad experience and he will always be my Dr. He is a very busy man but well worth the wait you have to sit sometimes. He takes the time to listen and he is very caring.

Although I'm thankful that Dr. McGowan's initial surgery probably saved my life, the second one is still taking its toll on me and since I refuse to take any drugs or steroids I live in chronic pain 24/7. Other doctors tell me it was due to the way the surgery was performed --- too invasive and too many nerves damaged beyond hope of being repaired. I should have gone to Omaha or Lincoln for the 2nd surgery, but I had trusted him after the initial surgery. He promised complete healing -- not so.

he is a great doctor he and his staff always follow up on procedures done and he don't just go cutting on people for insurance money

I first saw Dr. McGowan in the hospital. He has great bedside manners and he cares about his patients. He treats us like people and not a number. He is a caring physician and he is good at what he does. I was in terrible pain and when he did his procedure the biggest majority of my pain was gone.

I have been seeing this doc for a yr now and he has done a low back fusion on me 7 wks ago. I am so glad I finally got it done. The pain I was living with for the last 2 yrs is now finally gone. I definitely think he is a doctor worth seeing. Good bedside manner, takes time with patients.

Neck surgery good.the surgery he did on my back,was horrific when he was done,I couldn't stand up straight or walk without being bent over. I couldn't get my arms any higher than my shoulders, I couldn't even hang anything up.my internal organs where being crushed.Every time I would say anything he would tell me to keep walking. He did NOTHING TO HELP ME.
