Dr. Cowan and the entire staff at ENT Associates are awesome! Waiting time is minimal and they take the time necessary to listen and answer your questions. Dr. Cowan was comforting, understanding, and very knowledgeable. They even have a text line that gives you unbelievable access anytime, even after hours. A nurse friend recommended Dr. Cowan, and I couldn't be more pleased.

From the 1st visit last month to today's surgery, Dr. Cowan & staff have been amazing! My 5 yr old has had recurring ear infections for about a year now & with no resolve from his pediatrician, we switched doctor's & asked for a referral to an ENT. I'm so thankful we were referred to Dr. Cowan. We were able to find out that because of all the fluid in our son's ears, he was experiencing hearing loss which would clear up from placing tubes, he also needed to have his adenoids taken out.

I've only seen Dr. Cowen once but will be going back to him. He truly cares about his patients. Explained what was going on with me alot better than the previous specialist I seen, also didnt act like it was no big deal. I made another appointment with him for a totally different issue Im having immediately after. He also offered to not charge me for my next visit with him as he knew my insurance is not the best and Im tight on money. I love this guy. Definitely recommend him. Youll be glad!

Dr.Cowan performed a turbinate/sinus surgery on me in his office. This has been a life changing experience. No pain during or after surgery, amazing results. I did have some minor bleeding as expected. He has the best bedside manner I have ever seen among doctors. I would not think twice about selecting him to be my surgeon.
