Our Practice

Patients at Aurora Healthcare are encouraged to be active participants in their healthcare through open dialogue, a user-friendly patient portal, and choosing if they wish to be seen through traditional and non-traditional means. Our patients range in age from birth to 100, and we are proud to offer an equally wide range of flexible payment types including most health insurances and cash options for uninsured patients. As a private practice not affiliated with a particular hospital, we have the freedom to refer our patients to the specialists best suited for them regardless of the specialists' network affiliation. Complying by our mission statement; we not only give you time to discuss your concerns with your provider in a non-rushed setting, we offer old fashioned home visits and in-office visits while expanding with the everchanging future of healthcare by offering telehealth and virtual visits.

Christian McGowan, FNP-C

  • Provider

I started my career in the Army as a combat medic turned LPN, working at Walter Reed Hospital in Bethesda Maryland. I returned to Maine in 2014 after my service and worked as a LPN in nursing homes across the state while I finished my BSN in 2018 from University of Southern Maine. Afterwards I worked as an emergency room nurse and as a vascular access specialist and started my master’s degree during this time. I graduated from Walden University in 2023 with MSN-FNP and received my Board Certification shortly after from AANP. I grew up in Maine and you can find my wife and I hiking with our dogs in the summer and visiting the mountains of Maine in the winter. I am honored to work in healthcare and bring the modern knowledge of healthcare to patients of Aurora healthcare with a friendly and caring approach.
