Yes, the nurses, tech and doctor were all wonderful.


He's so easy to talk to, listens & I think a great surgeon for both my knee replacements.


Dr. McGovern is excellent. He is compassionate and a good listener. He is very thorough and explained everything very clearly. It was a great experience.


Dr. McGovern was behind schedule. But once I got into the office, I realize why he was behind schedule. He gave me as much time as I needed to feel comfortable with my visit. I’m sure he did exactly the same thing with his other patients. That’s why he was behind schedule. I would recommend him highly


He knows his stuff. Friendly, personable, confident. In a nice way


Dr McGovern is a very personable doctor who understood my situation and the anxiety I was experiencing. He explained everything so that I could understand what my condition needs.


I respect Dr. McGovern very much, and he is a doctor that I really want to do this operation. I wasâ?¦I would not recommend this to any other individual as far as hip replacement is concerned. I consider him the best there is in the area. Thank you.


He's very sincere in his work and explains your situation to you very well.


Highly recommend


Very good
