There has never been a time when my health care was not Dr. McCowan's highest interest. He always takes time to explain the whys and hows that will address my needs. In a pinch, I can always count on him to be available. John Cameron

Dr. McCowen is a fantastic doctor. He is very easy to talk to and ask good questions to get to root cause of your problems. He seems to be very up on modern medicine and procedures. He will not over prescribe but works with you to determine the best course of action. I would highly recommend.
