Nov 2, 2020
i am from up North where we have late evening and weekend visits. The office hours can be expanded; however, everything else was great.
Nov 2, 2020
Dr. Gowen was very nice and patient with my mother. in all fairness, he does not know much about her history, as we have not supplied any medical records for his review. So he cannot offer much advice on her health needs until he gets to see and learn her more. For where she is, a physical visit every six months is all that is required for now unless the bloodwork indicated something else.
Nov 2, 2020
The staff was very patient and despite COVID, handled us as normally as possible.
Nov 2, 2020
There were no delays; everything went smoothly.

I was there for an annual physical. It seemed like there was a rush to get me out of there as there were very few physical exam procedures done other than looking into my throat, listening to my heart, feeling the abdomen and neck. Lungs weren't listened to nor knee reflex.

didn't see anyone wash hands. This may have been done before or after they left the room.
