I would and I have recommended Dr. McCowen. I have been going to him for over 25 years. He sees my husband, my two children, my father, and my brother and his family! We love Dr. McCowen's kindness, patience, knowledge, advice, and his ability to take the time and LISTEN! He has the a heart of gold. In my family they know I am serious when I say I want to "clone" him! It would be wonderful if all doctors cared like he does and took the time to listen to patients.

Dr. McCowen was able to see me within a day or two of requesting my appointment. There was minimal wait time on the actual day of the appointment, and he was thorough in his assessment of the situation. Dr. McCowen always is able to bring a common sense and practical approach to the treatment of his patients.

Dr. McCowen is the perfect PCP for me. He always makes me feel like I have an active role in the management of my own health. He explains things in a way that I understand and is always sympathetic.
