  • Dr. Baucom assessed my situation and was very thorough in his evaluation and plan for my surgery. It was reassuring to hear the details of what the surgery entailed, and what the recovery process would be like. He is forthcoming and honest, and my wife and I are grateful that he was the one to take care of me.

    ~ B Nielsen ~
  • One and a half years later my finger still hurts, and hard to even sign my name! Had a sliver in my knukle so Dr. Gowski ripped off 1/2 my fingernail and tried to squeeze it out. Then he sliced the top of my skin off and found part of it and left Preston to sew me up. Preston then texted me for months about how to take sticthes out and not use polysporin for infection. My no.1 finger is a little better but still swollen a year and a half later with some nubmness and due to covid regs they get 2 stars instead of 1.
    My name is Ryan, and I will never go there again.
    ~ Rybo Inc ~
  • Thank you Dr. Gowski and Preston for an outstanding job for my thumb. The care I received from you and your staff should be done by all doctors. Pain was gone the first day after my procedure and I can now do the activities that couldn't before.
    ~ Belly Dancer ~
  • Explained everything he was doing on my ulnar nerve release. Made me feel at ease
    ~ Erin Chamberlain ~
  • Brought my teenage son in for pain in his wrist. The day he was there they thought they knew what it was but couldn't pinpoint it due to lack of swelling. They left my phone numbers to call as soon as it happened again which it did 3 days later. They were great to work us into the schedule same day to get him treated and taken care of. The staff is super friendly and explained everything along the way to make sure my son was at ease with the procedure being done. The follow-up care was fantastic and I really appreciated them including him.
    ~ Jessica Benson ~

  • Dr. Gowski was thorough with my arthroscopic surgery. I saw him on Monday to see what needed to be done and had surgery thursday.. the whole process was very quick, and I cam already feel the difference in my wrist even though I just started my recovery. His staff was awesome and made me feel comfortable and ready for the surgery. Only a few days out and everything is already getting better.
    ~ B Guymon ~
  • Dr. Gowski and his assistant, Preston, are amazing!!! I’ve had several trigger finger procedures done in their office. Their knowledge and expertise are top notch and they truly care about their patients. Any questions or concerns have been promptly answered by Preston. I would highly recommend Dr. Gowski and staff to anyone. Thanks for the great experiences!
    ~ Brenda Greenwell ~
  • Just called to get some more information on possibly seeing a Doctor with your clinic, and the person I spoke to was rude and uninformative. Couldn't answer any questions I had and told me to do my own research before trying to call back...... very turned off by this conversation. May want to look into some customer service training for your front desk staff.
    ~ Tanya Converse ~
  • As much as I wasn’t looking forward to surgery, Dr. Gowski’s staff is incredible. They checked up on me days prior to the surgery and after. I only had to wait a few minutes from the time I checked in & they took me for the numbing shots. Dr. Gowski & his staff are so friendly and they made the process quick and easy. Now I’m not nervous about my next surgery. THANK YOU !!
    ~ Boom ~
  • The office is in building 3 South Entrance. Appointments are easy to get. Dr. Gowski is very helpful and competent. He clearly discusses what the problem is and what treatment options are available.
    ~ Debra Bowman ~
  • This whole staff is amazing. Well trained in compassion, humor and skill. I’m very happy to have found the solution and a skilled team to facilitate the good outcome. Thank you Dr. Gowski for ending my ER visits.
    ~ Mona Claybaugh ~
  • Great experience- very professional with a great staff
    ~ Christina Jones ~
  • Dr. Gowski recently did a trigger thumb release surgery on my right thumb. As a musician, I was incredibly nervous for this procedure. Dr. Gowski and his medical assistant, Preston, went above and beyond to ease my worries. Everything about the entire process was smooth and efficient. I've appreciated how easy it is to get in touch with Preston when I have questions. I haven't felt hurried or shoved aside in my interactions with them. Dr. Gowski came highly recommended to me by other musician colleagues. He's excellent.
    ~ Emily Day-Shumway ~
  • Had my carpal tunnel fixed here. They were awesome. They kept me super informed throughout the whole thing and answered all of my questions and concerns. Plus my recovery was so smooth and my hand feels brand new.
    ~ Karolina Jimenez ~
  • Definitely the best hand doctor. Love how he does surgery under local. Helps save patients lots of money and he gets you numb super fast! Highly recommend him and his wonderful staff!
    ~ Susan Joppien ~
  • I was grateful for the small wait to be able to see Dr. Gowski, but I was amazed at his being able to do my surgery in his office the following day at a 1/4 of the cost I was expecting at the hospital. Dr. Gowski was professional, caring, and upbeat through the entire experience. I recommend him to anyone. I was also impressed with his office staff. My only wish is that I would have found this doctor sooner!
    ~ Patra Hepworth ~
  • The staff were all so nice and coordinated. They were very friendly and willing to chat to help keep me calm during the procedure. Everyone was knowledgeable and made sure I knew what was happening and what the outcome would be. It was quick and easy, but they didn't make me feel like "just another procedure" It was great!
    ~ Jen Elle ~
  • Dr. Gowski was great during Surgery. Answered all my questions and was very helpful with the problems I was having with cubital tunnel syndrome. Very friendly staff.
    ~ Kanna Meeks ~
  • I had ulnar nerve release on left elbow under local anesthesia only. Procedure was quick, efficient, and mostly painless other than a few zings up the nerve that Dr. Gowski communicated about each time. The healing process was so fast. I was wrapped for three days and when it came off and I was able to move more freely the soreness cleared up in about one day. After that only the incision area has been sore. Swelling and bruising was minimal. I love that this is local anesthesia because it saves money and avoiding all risks of anesthesia. I am booking my other elbow right away without any hesitation!
    ~ Jenny Lynn ~
  • I had an atypical ganglion cyst removed from my wrist by Dr. Gowski. He was professional, kind and competent. His office staff was so awesome as well. I would definitely go back to him and would recommend him to anyone looking for a good Ortho who specializes in hand

He and his team are kind, knowledgeable, and caring professionals who calmed my mind, answered my questions, and let me know what to expect every step of the way. I would highly recommend them to those people who are considering carpal tunnel surgery.

Very good experience I will definitely share my experience with others that are looking for this kind of help.
    ~ Gary Zane ~
  • Dr. Gowski performed a Left Carpal Tunnel Release surgery on me. The appointment was quick, easy & almost painless (Numbing medication provided via injection caused very minimal pain for me). His staff are Beautiful & Warm. Everything is explained in great detail & I even had the ability to watch the procedure (I know that's not for everyone but I enjoyed it). Highly recommend visiting his practice!
    ~ Nelle Versluis ~

    ~ Elsie Langi ~
  • Dr. Gowski is great. I've seen him for two different surgeries and had excellent experiences with both. His outpatient carpal tunnel surgery is fast and my insurance covered everything but the copay. I had both hands fixed for a total of $40 and about 2 hours of my total time.
    ~ Erik Grim ~
  • Best experience ever! I came in for a minimally invasive Carpal Tunnel sugery and was in and out in under an hour. The procedure itself only took about 5 minutes (at most) and I was able to drive myself home. The staff in this office are absolutely amazing, I felt comfortable and well cared for the entire time I was there and Dr. Gowski was very personable, straight forward, and honest. I will definitely be recommending him to any of my close family and friends who need a hand specialist!
    ~ Kena ~
  • It is always a pleasure for the doctor to see you at your appointment time. The staff was pleasant and friendly. The facility was clean and organized. Dr. Gowski has great bedside manner, was very informative and efficient, and showed interest and care. I highly recommend Dr. Gowski.
    ~ Bob Kupfer ~
  • Had minor surgery and everything went without a hitch. Everyone I came in contact with was very personable and set me at ease. Both visits were very timely to the point I was out of there almost before the time of my appointment. I would definitely use Dr. Gowski and his team for any needs in the future.
    ~ Dori Bergdorf ~
  • After three different doctors, two MRI's, two x-rays over several years of pain without a diagnosis, Dr. Gowski was able diagnose my forearm pain during my very first visit with him. After a short 20 minute surgery, my forearm is now painfree for the first time in over four years. I can't thank him and his staff enough for helping me. From my first phone call to his office, they have been nothing but professional. I have never given a review for a physician, but I have never been more excited to do so. I chose to consult with Dr. Gowski after reading his fantastic reviews, so I figured I should give him and his staff my review.
    ~ Bryce Davies ~
  • He removed a cyst from my wrist. My visit was fast and he and his staff were very professional and helpful in answering of my questions.

    ~ Jackie Phillips ~
  • After visiting several hand specialists for various surgeries related to a table saw incident I decided that I needed the best care possible. Ultimately, I chose Dr. Gowski and wish I would have known about him earlier. He is passionate about his work and goes the extra mile to make sure his clients receive appropriate care.

    ~ Bob Shimmon ~
  • I am very pleased with the experience I had with Dr Gowski! I had a bi-lateral carpal tunnel procedure done in office, it was quick and painless and I could tell he knows his stuff. His staff is friendly and helpful and put my mind at ease prior to the procedure. I would not trust my hands to anyone other than Gowski and his team!
    ~ Roland Thompson ~

    ~ Emily Stewart ~
  • Can't get better than Dr. Vernon Cooley and his exceptional crew. Takes the time, listens well, works hard to understand what's happening and find the route toward best outcome. Highly recommended.
    ~ Greg Whisenant ~
  • Just had my meniscus cleaned up and feeling great!
    ~ William P ~
  • I wouldn't choose any other place to have an ACL surgery!! Very professional, and amazing to work with.
    ~ Berrett Brady ~
  • I have gone to Dr Cooley for almost 20yrs. I have had numerous surgeries, almost every 2 yrs. He has always treated me as an equal. I have never had so much confidence going to any one doctor as I do when I go to him. I know all the staff by a first name basis, they treat you like family. I would highly recommend this office to anyone, as a matter of fact I have numerous times! I found him 19 years ago after getting 3 other opinions and have never needed other opinions after. I trust him and so should you!
    ~ Paul Avner ~
  • I can't say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Cooley, his assistant Steve, and the entire staff at their clinic at Intermountain. I was originally mis diagnosed by a doctor at Redstone, and when my knee blew up and I could barely walk to started calling knee doctors. Dr. Cooley was able to identify several problems that others missed and scheduled me for surgery. Dr. Cooley spent the time to explain everything to me so I felt comfortable about the whole process. He has an awesome bedside manner. My surgery was in October and December I was hitting the slopes!! If you need surgery, you are in great hands with Dr. Cooley!
    ~ Nadia Axakowsky ~
  • Can't get better than Dr. Vernon Cooley and his exceptional crew. Takes the time, listens well, works hard to understand what's happening and find the route toward best outcome. Highly recommended.
    ~ Greg Whisenant ~
  • Go straight to Dr Cooley! I had another surgeon perform knee surgery a year prior and within 2 minutes of the exam Dr Cooley knew what the other surgeon had done wrong. He performed an additional surgery and I’m almost completely healed!
    ~ Scott Heninger ~
  • Very happy with Dr. Metcalf. He did an excellent job on my shoulder and the post surgery care has been excellent. He was recommended to me as one of the best doctors to work on my shoulder and he did not disappoint. I would recommend him to anyone.
    ~ Kent Brown ~
  • Surgery on my shoulder today. I was very impressed with Dr. Metcalf's quality of care, bedside manner and patient needs. Personality plus with NO sign of "Doctor ego"..You can't go wrong by choosing this doc to work on you. Here is a bonus I have NEVER experienced. He personally call my wife while I was in recovery. to inform her, in detail how things went. Trust factor 5-stars. Same for the "Tosh" nursing staff. Over the top helpful with my needs.
    ~ Dirk Pitt ~
  • Dr Metcalf took plenty of time with me, listened to my needs and opinions and provided excellent treatment.
    ~ Cory King ~
  • Dr. Metcalf has repaired my shoulder twice. I believe he is the best there is for shoulders. He is highly skilled as my rotator tears have been large and especially my last tear was tricky to fix. He was upfront with me. He spent the time with me and answered my questions and concerns. I had to see him monthly for six months and at my year mark. His bedside manner is good. He was patient with me and he was also stern with me in a good way as I wanted to be progressed faster than he was doing. His sternness was what I needed to understand my precarious situation. His PA Woody, is amazing as well. He was available to talk with me on the phone, these two are a great pair. I was well taken care of and two years out and doing great! You can’t go wrong with Dr. Metcalf!
    ~ Marci Owen ~
  • He did surgery on my right shoulder. He removed a bone spur that was causing me problems. I was back to work faster than I expected.
    ~ Joyce Hair ~
  • I"ve had shoulder surgery by Dr. Metcalf. The surgery was well over 8 years ago. I'm at 99% movement and no pain, no lasting pain, etc. He is wonderful!
    ~ Tiffany Manwaring ~
  • Dr. Metcalf is a really nice guy who is to the point and professional. He’s extremely knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions you have. I really enjoy him and am grateful I put my shoulder surgery in his hands.
    ~ Zane Delucia ~
  • Dr. Metcalf is not arrogant nor does he act like he is a God. He knows his stuff, treats his patients with care and respect. I have never felt rushed or ignored. He is not a big talker but if I asked he will answer. Sorry those few had a bad experience. Listen to the rest of them he is a Great shoulder Doctor!
