We were very lucky to meet Dr. Gow and he saved our son's life in 2007. He had great sense of humor. He was professional, very responsive, humble, and genuine. I was worried and scared as a mother of a sick 10 months old baby. We trusted Dr. Gow through these difficult moments. My child is a healthy and happy 1st grader now. Dr. Gow is a great surgeon! Thank you, Dr. Gow!

Dr. Gow is the greatest! When he was in Atlanta he saved my son's life. My son was born with a rare condition and Dr. Gow was there with me every step of the way. I cannot thank him enough for his kindness, caring, and professionalism. We will never forget you and can never thank you enough for giving him a chance at life. He is the best!
