June 25, 2018 7:00 PM

My visit was for surgery clearance. My Provider was great.

June 23, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. MCGowan is very in tune with me. She listens to my concerns and when I lift her office I felt like she had provided me will a solution to my issue without placing me on more medication. She didn't she treat me like I was the next person in her office on a checklist. I felt like I was her main concern while in the room with her.

June 15, 2018 7:00 PM

I enjoy my visit.

June 13, 2018 7:00 PM

I am very pleased with Dr. McGowan. She has always listened and answered all of my questions concerning my health - she has played an important part of my health - welfare. I like the time she takes with me, the way she listens to me, the way she answers me and the wisdom she gives me concerning my health. I feel safe with her because I believe she CARES!

June 6, 2018 7:00 PM

Excellent Doctor that listen to all your concern and think about what prescription to provide for you. Not just prescribe you with any kind of medications and wait to see what happens.

June 3, 2018 7:00 PM

Great visit

June 1, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. McGowen is going to be missed. She is caring and concerned. She has that bed side manner which most doctors lack. She put me on a leave of absence for stress back in 2015. It changed my life and it was very much needed. I can't thank her enough. She is so thorough and kind. I never feel rushed or put off. My experience is always exceptional with Dr. McGowen. I wish her and her family the best.

May 27, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. McGowan is always kind am concerned.she asks me questions an gives me time to answer. she ask if there's anything bothering me I want to talk about,or if I am depressed. am I exercising? I am pleased with her care.

April 22, 2018 7:00 PM

I love Dr. McGown and I will hate to see her go if I could I would follow her. I think she is an excellent Dr. and that she really care about her pt.'s she know there names family members and she remembers your problems, I lost Two sister's and a nephew last year and my husband had a stroke Dr. McGown always ask how am I really doing and if I'm holding up under the stress of it all. I referred two pt.'s to her and she always ask how there doing. She's like a friend than a Dr. and I trust her with my life she knows me I'm not just a number or a disease and she don't have to look at my chart to remember who I am. She's GREAT and Advocate is loosing a Precious Jewel. and when it comes to the pt.'s she will be hard to replace.

March 25, 2018 7:00 PM

I love Dr. McGowan. She listens to your concerns. She respects the fact that I know my body and I am aware when something is going wrong. She asked if I had directives for health care, etc. A very good doctor.

March 18, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. McGowan have been my doctor since the age of 15 years old. She knows me inside and out & no offense to any other doctor but I only trust my doctor. I kid you not, she knows i'd rather suffer than come into the office to someone else who does know me personally or my body, unless she makes me get over it. lol. Dr. McGowan is the BEST hands down!

March 17, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. McGowan is ALWAYS great!!! She listens, gives her opinion & then treats us.

March 3, 2018 6:00 PM

My provider was very nice and understanding.

March 2, 2018 6:00 PM

My primary care physician was attentive and ordered test to rule out suspensions or concerns I had, she also prescribed medications for the issues that were occurring. She notified me the same day of test results to ease my concerns.

February 26, 2018 6:00 PM

This provider did not listen to my concerns and rushed the appointment. I have now sought out another primary physician because of how poor this visit was.

February 26, 2018 6:00 PM

Very nice.

February 26, 2018 6:00 PM

Doctor mcgowan is a excellent doctor and I would recommend her to any and everyone. she gets a A+ from me.

February 26, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Sandra McGowan was very accommodating as I called and asked to be squeezed into her schedule for a persistent cough and soar throat. She was able to see me on a day when we were hit with a major storm. Her office called to see if I could get in early so I wouldn't be out once the snow storm really picked up. I was see, taken good care of and all my concerns were addressed appropriately. I absolutely LOVE the care I receive from Dr. McGowan and at AMG South Holland.

February 24, 2018 6:00 PM

I think Dr. McGowan is excellent and is very concern for her patients.

February 18, 2018 6:00 PM

January 16, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. McGowan was very busy.

January 9, 2018 6:00 PM


January 8, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Sandra McGowen is wonderful. I feel that she tries hard to listen to my needs. She has a wonderful bed side manner and is very confident. She is very thorough and makes a point to look you in the eye. The necessary test that are needed are given. The referrals are provided along with the necessary medications. I left my old doctor because she overlooked my mother's concerns and then it was too late. She passed away. I feel confident that I am getting good care. I am upset sometimes when I can get a current appointment in emergencies. The phone people are nice but they have their orders. I would like to see that improved. I wish and hope that Dr. McGowen will be my doctor on through my senior years. I am very pleased with her.

January 8, 2018 6:00 PM

I have seen this doctor twice and she was very personable both times and answered my questions.

January 7, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. McGowan is an excellent provider.

January 5, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. McGowan is always great. She's thorough, she exhibits patience and she's concerned about her patients and her thoughts. I live in the Hyde Park area and I travel about 30-40 minutes to see Dr. McGowan because I love the card she provides and I trust her as my healthcare provider.

January 4, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. McGowan answered all my questions professionally and with compassion.

January 1, 2018 6:00 PM

fantastic provider. Very informative.

January 1, 2018 6:00 PM
