McGovern has been with us since our daughter was diagnosed at 2 weeks old... he helped in saving her life that day.....so almost 5 yrs now. He has been a wonderful cardiologist. He usually explains things using doctors terms, but has always been patient, understanding and kind with every question we've had, using charts to help us understand what was going on with our daughter. He respects our choices and has never been pushy or aggressive in his approach. He cares...which is big for us.
