Saw Dr. Cowan on a referral from my primary care after having hearing loss, tinnitus and several rounds of vertigo. Diagnosed with Meniere’s. Staff/Dr was helpful as long as you don’t need anything more than a quick office visit - don’t even think of asking for any type of paperwork to be completed! When asked, staff became rude and unhelpful. Don’t waste you time with this office.

Dr Cowens office helped my son tremendously! Ryker my son was 2years old at the time constantly had ear infection for 2years straight! Dr.Cowen put his tubs in the next day after we saw him because my little boy was in so much pain. Ryker is 3years old now and hasn't had a ear infection since! Dr. Cowen is the best ear specialist around in my opinion!

Dr. Cowan and his so called staff are a joke. Made an appointment, They called me and changed it. After I drove an hour to see this man he was not there, I was then told I needed a referral, and then to top it off they wanted $200.00 for a new patient fee ?? even though there was a sign up saying he would no longer be practicing in Longview. I will say that I was very upset and was not happy. In the mean time this so called Doctor sent word that he would not see me because of my attitude. WOW
