Dr M. has saved my health. I was recovering from my 3rd time with pneumocystis within 4yrs while living in Tulsa. I moved to Tennessee still sick but fighting to find help. That was 14yrs ago. I have had my fare share of sickness but am finally undetectable. Cathy McGowan I thank you for caring.

Mr. McGowan proposed changing a current medication for a newer one that I would have to take less often. She listened and understood and respected my choice for not wanting to change.

I have been driving from the Jackson TN area , to see Dr McGowan , for about 15 years now. I think that speaks volumes about my regard for her as a provider . She has been there for me through many health problems , and as my primary care physician, coordinates my care with any other specialists .

Though her clinic is very busy I always feel like she has time to look at my chart and ask questions pertaining to medications and mental health/stressors.
