Dr. Heather has been the pediatrician of both my children for the past 20 years. She is caring and thorough with every examination and takes the time to connect and answer all questions. she speaks to the patients and establishes a trusting relationship. I trust her judgement and abilities. she makes appropriate referrals and is always responsive to calls. Never a problem scheduling appointments, staff is friendly, waiting room child friendly. wait time can be lengthy sometimes but worth it.

Dr. McGowan is the absolute best pediatrician. I'm now about to turn 21 and I've been seeing Dr. McGowan since I was 7. She not only has treated my physical ailments, she is a constant support and never hesitates to be there for me with the right words. Dr. McGowan is smart as a whip, but has a heart of gold- I couldn't have asked for a better pediatrician.
