What People Say About Dr. Kerry Gowell, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Gowell has performed 3 surgeries on me: a myomectomy in 2009, a c-section in 2012, and a hysterectomy in 2019. All 3 surgeries went very well and had minimal recovery time. He has a wonderful bedside manner and seems genuinely concerned about my well being while I am under his care. He takes time to answer questions and explains what he is doing without leaving the patient feeling confused or unsure. I would recommend Dr. Gowell without hesitation. He is the best around!!
