I have been seeing Dr. Gowing for many years and he is by far one of the compassionate doctor i have dealt with. Definitely recommend him, his wait list is a bit congested however if you can get on cancellation list it will be worth it. He involves you in your treatment plan and listens to your concerns.

Dr Gowing is the first rheumatologist to LISTEN to me. He was professional and compassionate. He asked me questions about my health that previous providers hadn't asked and took his time in doing so. I felt heard for the first time in 4 years.

Left messages when my eyes swelled shut and my hands developed a severe rash from lupus. Got a call back two days later asking for clarification. Left message to call back, they never did. I need a doctor now not three months from now. If they felt the pain and fear that I go through, maybe they would show their patients more compassion.

He's the most caring and thorough Doctor I've ever seen. He's up to date on new treatments. He always listens to your concerns and does the best to address them all. I would recommend him for anyone with fibromyalgia. He is the cream of the crop!
