Personable, informative, knowable and sincere, caring about my issues and took the time to explain.. I work in the medical field but i have no associated with this office or Dr Gower. Being in the medical field I could be a bit critical and also praising when things go right. I can't think of a bad thing with my appointment and interaction with him. Absolutely recommend.
