I have always been proactive about my health, so when my cervical disk problem needed surgery, I took the same mri/radiological information to 4 top neurological spine surgeons and received 3 different opinions, a real eye opening experience. Dr. McGowan recommendation was the most conservative and was my choice. The entire staff and treatment that I received was the best I could ever have expected. James H. Moore

Dr McGowan very knowledgeable in his area of specialties. He has commendable personality. He takes resolving patients issues personal. He took time to address my issues and explained everything in terms that a medically non well informed patients could understand. He has a very friendly attitude and made me very comfortable. I really appreciated his care and services, hence won't hesitate recommending him to my family and friends.

I have been dealing with the VA for many years with herniated disks and degenerative disk disease. I have gotten nowhere with them. I was referred to Dr. McGowan and I could not be more pleased with the outcome of my surgery. I have lived in constant pain for 15 years. I had surgery on 10/3/16 and I feel AMAZING! He listens to his patients! He takes pride in helping others! He's the best! Thank you Dr. McGowan for changing my life!!!
Thank you for the positive feedback and compliment of our physician! We appreciate the kind words.
