HAD TO VISIT DR. MCKOWAN REGARDING HAVING SURGERY. HE EXPLAINED THE SURGERY AND WENT AS FAR AS DRAWING ME A PICTURE OF THE KIND OF SURGERY I WAS IN NEED OF. AFTER SURGERY IN WEE HOURS DR. MCKOWAN WENT TO ICU TO CHECK ON ME THEN AGAIN IN THE AFTERNOON. THEREAFTER I WENT TO THE FLOOR AND THERE HE WAS FOR ME AGAIN. I NEVER HAD SO MUCH ATTENTION DUE TO I NEVER HAD TO HAVE SUCH A SURGERY. HE WAS AMAZING JOB WELL DONE.
