What People Say About Dr. Courtney Cowden III, MD
Reply
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.

About Me

I went into orthopedics because I like making people better. A lot of medicine is delaying things or putting off the inevitable. We can help people who cannot do something and give them ability to do that again.
