This physician is terrific. He is smart and knowledgeable, caring and kind. His practice is very efficient and patient-friendly. The pt portal is an easy way to pick an appointment time, give and receive messages, and get test results. This MD is also down to earth, practical, and reasonable. Great guy.

Dr. McGowan is wonderful. He listens and doesn’t make you feel rushed. He responds to emails, via the portal, in a very timely manner. His nurse and physican assistants are awesome! Front desk staff not so much. They are not very responsive to answering the phone or returning messages and the reason I didn’t give 5 stars.

The staff and the Doctor were very nice. I tend to get a bit keyed up when going to see medical personnel, but the whole experience made me feel at ease.
