Patient Comments

Comments are taken from the Care Provider section of the Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Comments are posted exactly as they are written. Comments are added weekly. To protect patient privacy and confidentiality, patient names are not included.


The doctor always called personally to answer question or comment/inform about test results. That's for me is a A+.


Love seeing y'all put your best effort forward.


Dr. Gower was wonderful! He explained the issues/diagnoses for my daughter in terms that were understandable and even though her primary issue turned out to be not related to his specialty, he answered our questions and gave us the answers that we have been searching for from other providers but had not been getting. I can't speak highly enough of him.
