I was told that i was going to lose my eye sight. This was after i had eye surgery at the golden jubilee hospital.After four days i was sent to the opticians who sent me back there.Then i was sent to Hairmyers who operated as soon as i arrived.i was then moved to Gartnaval where doctor McGowan operated.After the operation he explained to me how aggressive it had become.On examination one of his colleges had look and said if you throw a bunch of monkeys a piano they shall perform an orchestra.I would like to take this oppertunity to thank you Dr McGowan. your sincerely Ann Whyte
I was first seen by Dr McGowan in July 2018 when I was diagnosed with macular oedema in my left eye. In September 2018 he carried out a complex procedure which included corrective surgery to a previously mended retinal tear, retinal peel, removal of the oedema and replacement of the lens. Since then he has removed a cyst on the left eyelid and repaired three further retinal tears in my right eye. I now have the all clear with the proviso that because of the damage to the retina in my right eye I could possibly develop macular oedema in that eye. I hope I don"t but if it does happen I will do everything in my power to ensure that I am seen again by Dr McGowan and treated by him. I have complete faith in his abilities as a surgeon but he is also has a sense of humour and a great manner.
I recently had a consultation with Dr. McGowan regarding a cataract operation. He went through the procedure thoroughly and in language the lay person could understand. On the day of the operation he was reassuring and the operation was quick and painless. I had a second cataract removed some four weeks later with the same result. The improvement in my sight has been remarkable and I would thoroughly recommend Dr. McGowan, especially to people who may be nervous of this type of operation.
Mr McGowan performed 2 cataract operations on my 85 year old Mum. My Mum and I were naturally apprehensive about the procedures. From the first appointment Mr McGowan’s caring, engaging and professional manner put us both at ease. Mr McGowan showed great patience in taking his time to explain the procedure and answer any questions we had. Following her first operation my Mum could not believe how well the operation had gone and was actually looking forward to the second operation! My Mum now has 20/20 vision. I would highly recommend Mr McGowan. He is a first class consultant and surgeon who has an excellent ‘bed side manner’ showing great care and attention to his patients.
Mr McGowan performed 2 cataract operations on my 85 year old mother. His care was first class. He showed great patience in his dealings with my mother taking his time to explain the procedure to my Mum and myself. My mother had been really nervous but Mr McGowan’s engaging, caring & professional manner put her at ease and she was actually looking forward to her second operation!! Both operations were a complete success and she now has 20/20 vision! I would highly recommend Mr McGowan.
