Fantastic doctor. Her focus on prevention drew me to her, but she actually diagnosed me with an illness that others had missed. Feeling the healthiest I have in years.

Dr. Sowa is a well trained, caring physician who diagnosed my problem when no one else could. She is very smart and tells it like it is. I accepted her recommendations and got better. Now I can get on with the rest of my life.

Dr. Sowa is incredible. She is the first doctor who didn't just tell me how to lose weight, but how to do it. She's incredibly encouraging and treats me like a person, not just a patient. Very thorough and smart.

Very personable dr, but misdiagnosed condition, didn't follow up with promised referral and too busy to reply to email when that is how she said to contact her.
