    Extremely irresponsible. He gives weighty diagnoses then provides no plan of care or solutions other than temporary fixes to symptoms. He forgets about his patients. If you have kidney problems and are considering Govaerts, I have one word for you: RUN.

    Dr. Govaerts and his staff are phenomenal. Dr. Govaerts is highly knowledgeable, and extremely personable. He had already reviewed my chart and labs prior to my appointment. He was timely, and spent an hour with me. He used visual aids to enable my understanding. He answered all my questions. I highly recommend them!
