Verified Patient Reviews
She listens and cares. She is thorough and wants her patients to understand what’s going on with their bodies.
Dr. G was so friendly and really listened to my needs. Her tech was very professional. The location is near my office which was a plus. The touch screen kiosks had great health tips to read while you wait.
Dr. Gouvenia has an excellent bedside manner. She always gives the patient undivided attention and makes sure you understand exactly what she is talking about. She apologies if there is ever any delay and this particular day there was none. She even called the next day to check up on me and see how I was doing. It is hard to find Doctors that care as much as she does.
Dr. G was interested in me and my questions. She didn't make me feel rushed nor did I feel that she was wasting my time. I highly recommend her.

I brought my 90 year old father to see Dr. G. Dad has not seen or want to see a physician on 25+ years. We both loved the staff. They were so patient, kind and understanding of his needs. Dr. G. Has a very personable style. She was very through. Made great recommendations, got my dad to willing submit for test she felt were needed. Answered all my questions and was knowledgeable regarding about home health services he is eligible for. I appreciated her patience and the time she spent with us.
