I had a great experience with Dr. Cowden. I find him to be very caring and professional. I have never felt like he didn’t have time for all my questions. Yes, I had to wait for a couple of months for my surgery BUT that is because of the pandemic. I don’t understand complaints about waiting.

Good luck getting a surgery scheduled and them sticking to it! Living with knee pain for months waiting for something to be done. Perfect example of “just ok”.

I have seen Dr. Cowden a few times for a sports injury and have not been impressed with my care. Since I'm a medical student living off loans, paying for the x-rays after the first visit meant I didn't have the money to see another doctor in town. I have been unimpressed with Dr. Cowden's practice. I only briefly see him during visits and always end up waiting upwards of an hour talking with multiple nurses before even seeing him. When we do interact it's like I'm an inconvenience.
