My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My passion for taking care of the whole patient has become even stronger as I watch healthcare in the United States become more depersonalized. I have heard, and personally witnessed, stories of patients suffering because they do not have a knowledgeable advocate in their corner and this has moved me to the point of action. By partnering with MDVIP, I will provide a personalized healthcare experience where you are the center of attention. Not only will your needs be addressed as they arise through unhurried, longer appointments, but we will be able to focus on preventive medicine and begin to prepare for issues before they arise.

My father has been a practicing family physician for over 43 years, and I have witnessed first-hand the power of a strong doctor-patient relationship. I remember the days when he made house calls and was able to walk into a patient’s room and know something was wrong before the patient even began to speak. This is the relationship I strive to create with my patients. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice the doctor-patient relationship is the focus. By combining this sacred relationship with strong evidence based medicine, as well as modern technology, we will create an atmosphere of teamwork. My patients are not just a number but an active partner in their healthcare. Together, I hope to enable you to achieve and exceed healthcare goals you may never have thought possible.

As our healthcare system becomes more fragmented and complicated, I look forward to partnering with you and your family as your personal physician. As a team we will champion your health and provide you an experience with healthcare the way it was always intended to be.

from Yvonne in AR March 16, 2018 for W. Blake McGowan, MD

We are so grateful to have Dr. McGowan as our Doctor. We feel as if he is a part of our family----just a phone call away when we need him. He is a Christian man that lives out his faith walk as he compassionately cares for his patients. He exhibits a wealth of experience and knowledge in making a diagnosis and answers any questions I have with honesty and clarity in terms easily understood… See more

Mine is a pretty long story that I will try to keep short. My first visit with Dr McGowan was on a Wednesday. I had not been feeling well. He and his nurse performed a number of test to try to determine the problem. On Friday morning I was in the ER. Dr McGowan was there by my side. Unheard of in these days of modern medicine. He spent over and hour with ER physicians and my family. The ER… See more

I am so grateful that you opened the MDVIP office. Melinda and I find it very convenient and comforting as we enter our golden years. I am glad that Cynthia E. joined you. She speaks highly of you. Oh, and I am losing weight like a madman.

The physical that Dr. McGowan and staff performed was very in-depth and I felt that my health was very important to them. During my exam it was found that I had hearing problems in my right ear. I now wear a hearing aid and it has been years since I've been able to hear this good. To be able to get ahold of Dr. McGowan or his nurse anytime, through email, text, phone call is very… See more

Dr. McGowan puts the care in healthcare.

from Valencia in AR March 1, 2018 for W. Blake McGowan, MD

During the consultation following my yearly 2017 exam, Dr. Blake McGowen was candid with me about getting healthy through routine exercise and watching what I eat as I grow older. He explained the factors that would go against me if I continued the path I was taking. I trusted what he said and put my new routine into motion in June 2017. During my February 2018 yearly exam, Im down 20 lbs due… See more

from Melinda in AR February 28, 2018 for W. Blake McGowan, MD

Dr. McGowan was easily reached twice after hours in May, 2017, when I had abdominal pain. He discussed what could be causing it, gave me directions, and I got to stay home in the comfort of my bed instead of driving to the emergency room. It was so much less stressful for me.

from Susan in AR February 28, 2018 for W. Blake McGowan, MD

My family has loved being a part of MDVIP. Dr. McGowan has been wonderful. He and Misty are there when any problem arises. It is so nice being able to call and the people on the other end know who you are. Their office is very appealing and comfortable. Thanks for doing such a great job!!

from Page in DE February 28, 2018 for W. Blake McGowan, MD

Dr. McGowan makes me feel safe with the knowledge of my medical conditions. He listens and has made good decisions about my healthcare that have helped me. It is easy getting appointments when I need them and I know I can always call with questions. I appreciate you!!!

from Bill in AR February 28, 2018 for W. Blake McGowan, MD

Dr. McGowan,....I feel so blessed to have you as my physician. You have always treated me with Courtesy, Promptness, and Professionalism. It is comforting to
be approaching 72 years of age with a health partner who never belittles the
attendant aches and slowness of aging and who is pro active in dealing with
possible problems. Have a wonderful knowing that you are making a… See more
