What People Say About Dr. Gwendolyn Sowa, MD
Reply
I have been a patient of Dr. Sowa since 2009 and she is absolutely fantastic. My first visit to her office I was first checked out by a resident (how else are they going to learn). Then Dr. Gwen Sowa herself spent another full hour with me analyzing the various conditions I came to her about. Her bedside manor is amazing. She was and still is involved in improving my quality of life as best possible. Her being a researcher is a wonderful bonus!!!
