Dr. McGowan treated my back pain with 4 shots. It really helped, but there was still pain in my hip area from my back. We did a different shot to that area and I'm glad to say I'm almost 100 percent back. Two days ago it was hard for me to walk on vacation in New York. Dr. McGowan truly knows his medicine. I'm a college professor and I'm glad I am using him. I just referred a friend to the doctor. Good luck, but he is great.
