I can only speak positive of Dr McGowan. If I knew someone that needed a Dr in her field. I wouldn't think twice about recommending her. I've had some not so good doctors in the past and Dr McGowan is the greatest.

It is evident that *Dr. McGowan became a doctor because she cares and wants to help.

Dr. McGowan is one of the best doctors I've ever seen. I've been her patient for 25 years and have had cancer, open heart surgery, blood clots, HIV/AIDS and many other health issues and she never ceases to amaze me with her knowledge of my and my medical history. She is always extremely professional and very kind. I always feel she is on top of things as she is always looking for the best care for my issues. She always responds promptly when I send her a MHAV message. I will never replace her.
