Dr McGovern has been incredible to work with through my child's CHD & heterotaxy condition. I have full confidence in the decisions he suggests when deciding if it's time for the next surgery. He takes the time not only to listen to me but also my child, he is patient & takes his time to explain things that are out of my comprehension.
