in Sandy, UT |
Initially i did not go to Dr. Gowski - I took my torn ligaments in my thumb to another orthopedic hand dr and after 3 months nothing was resolved and i was still in a lot of pain. I went into Dr. Gowski and he immediately planned a course of action that resolved my very painful thumb, right away. I am VERY grateful for Dr. Gowski attention to my problem and for being out of pain.

Very bad experience with Dr. Gowski. Discussed some serious hand issues with three different staff (including Dr. Gowski). Never during the exam did anyone touch or examine my hands. Dr. Gowski provided me with no clear treatment plan nor did he seemed overly concerned with my pain. Advised me to return if it continues. I left more frustrated and feeling that I wasted my time. A diagnosis and treatment plan was provided by another Dr. that I went to see due to Dr. Gowski's lack of care.
in Salt Lake City, UT |
My meeting with Dr. Gowski and his staff was not a good one. I met with his physicians assistant, took x-rays and then Dr. Gowski. I explained my pain and symptoms. Dr. Gowski seemed somewhat aloof and disinterested regarding my passion. No treatment plan was identified. There was no touch, manipulation or physical exam of my hand. I left feeling very dissatisfied and obtained treatment and surgery from another doctor for my condition.

Dr Gowski was very kind and went the extra mile to do a few extra details to assure my hand was going to heal correctly. The part surgeon did not recommend. I am almost back to 100% after 3 weeks.

My son and I saw dr gowski about an elbow problem. He and his office were wonderful. I was so impressed by the time he spent w/ my son helping us understand a rather complicated situation. Really grateful for his time and knowledge. Thank you!

Dr. Gowski was referred to me by my hand therapist after a bone fusion surgery left complications. Dr. Gowski was thorough in explaining what was going on - and explained the length of time I could expect to spend in recovery. I wish I had gone to him first - but I will go to him from now on.
