Dr. McGovern saved my life! I was fortunate that he was the doctor on call Christmas weekend and he quickly concluded that emergency surgery was called for. That required securing an operating room and assembling his team for surgery the next day. His quick and accurate diagnosis coupled with his skill and immense experience as a surgeon brought me through an imminently life-threatening condition. Following surgery, Dr. McGovern assembled a team of specialists to work with me on my recovery.

the best in the world. Thirteen years later, doing better than i thought when first diagnosed with kidney cancer. I was symptomatic, i was initially misdiagnosed in my local ER. I was sent to Lahey initially and left quickly before they could embolize, TG! Thanks to a cousin's son in law's boss's recommendation, i went to see Dr. McGovern. The hospital nursing and dietary staff need improvement, but i would say this doctor and the surgical team were second to none!

The best Urologist and Sugical Urologist in Boston. I have worked with him and I have sent family members and friends to him and all were very happy with him. He is the real deal! The complete package! He was also my urologist and I wouldn't have anyone else. He is very easy for anyone to talk to. He is a good listener! He will put patients at ease and explain everything to you. No surprises, and if you have a question, just call him. Very approachable.
