Dr. Govekar is a physician who combines extraordinary intellect with superb intuition. As a patient, you never feel rushed nor talked down to. And his skill as a surgeon and his willingness to advocate for his patients is inspiring. I cannot imagine being in better care than I receive from Dr. Govekar.
