The office staff was VERY friendly and helpful. Whoever is the office manager should get a raise. As soon as I stepped into the office, I knew this doctor's office had a culture of care and concern for each and every patient.

Dr. Gouivia is one of a kind. If her office moved 100 miles away, I would still see her. She is genuinely concerned with how I am doing and explains things in a precise and orderly manner. She never seems to be in a hurry.

My wife and I have already recommended our doctor to several people. We know of two who have made her they PCP. Dr. Gouvia is always very caring and concerned about my health. And I've been very impressed by her memory. When my wife is not with me, she always asks about her by name.

As I indicated earlier, we have already recommended St. Francis Medical Partners and Dr. Gouveia to friends.
