in Ft Myers, FL |
Dr Gower is not only a very skilled surgeon but a very caring man. He did several surgeries on my mom. When I was pregnant, I developed a hernia which he came in to repair when I had my c-section. Him being there to assist bringing my precious baby into the world was so special. I'm also an ICU nurse who has worked with him in the hospital. I live in Florida now but if I needed surgery I would return to Alaska just for him!

Dr. Gower is direct and very proficient. I had My level of trust for this Dr. is off the chart. The office environment is very calming and pleasant. My waiting time in his office was very reasonable right within 10 minutes or less. I LOVE his team and was very satisfied with my Lymphoma extraction. He is a superb Dr. and I would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a Class A General Surgeon.
