Conway , AR |
Would not recommend her to anyone! I have lupus, fibromyalgia, def disc disease and arthritis in neck shoulders hip and back. She treated me like a drug seeking junky! Took me off the meds that worked and put me down to a low dose of meds I had told her didn’t work. All she wanted to do is injections that I’ve had many times before with no relief and said she could cure me. Really?! There is no cure for lupus and the pain it causes! I fired her!

Find a different doctor. I waited over a month for my follow up appt. and she wasn't even there. Nurse said I'd have to wait another month to see the doctor and nothing they could do. They do not listen and do not care. Staff is rude. It's like going to a parole hearing for your health
Benton, AR |
I've been down in my back since monday. I got to see you Tuesday. I never got the shot I'm in severa pain . It fells like my back is stuck. I'm not complaining but I've had enough of the pain. Also can not reach you at 246 number
Sherwood, AR |
After undergoing THREE spinal steroid injections with still NO relief from degenerative disk disease, she still wanted to do another in my neck. NOPE!! She refused to write any more meds even though the meds at least help me get through the day. Don't go to this doctor. She has an agenda of making money from your insurance, and will not listen to what you have to say.

I've had 2 major spinal fusions done which has left me with chronic pain. Dr Cowan has helped me considerably, but as we all should know they can not cure pain. It's treatable to get to point where we can function. She does this. She is a good doctor and GOOD PERSON. My wife and I are both very thankful for her help in our treatment.
in Little Rock, AR |
Does not care about listening to what your pain is in the slightest, only pushes her agenda onto you and what 'SHE' thinks is appropriate, under medicated me causing me to develop more painful issues until i finally cancelled her contract and went to Dr. Mocek, do yourself and your insurance a favor and stay away from this woman.

Dr. Cowan has helped me and I like her just fine. The office staff however is RUDE.
in Brinkley,Arkansas |
Doc is a kind person who really is concerned about my health. She has done excellent with getting my back straightened out. I would recommend her to anyone.. She's a special lady..
in Jacksonville, Ar |
Glad I didn't read these reviews before my visit. I actually felt the opposite. She took the time to explain other avenues of treating my chronic pain rather than with pills. I am now more active than I have been in a long time. Cheers to improving my quality of life!
North Little Rock, AR |
will not listen to you as a patient and is very unwilling to consider you knowing what is best for you. she actually demanded i see a surgeon and accept steroids as the only treatment.

Give -50..I have been with Dr Covey in LR,AR for years,living in North AR driving 3+hours one-way to see him and his COMPASSIONATE staff. Then with Ron Tilley another COMPASSIONATE professional Physician & Staff in MtiHomeAr for yrsNow in the LR, Ar area seeing Dr Cowan I have gone from the stronger narcotic opioid's, down to the Tramadol rx, and trying to maintain on that rather than stronger/ r/t age,etc. ALL OWN my Own pref.Pain ruined my life&30yr Marriage. Cowan is RUDE& inattentive.
in Dermott, AR |
I had my first visit with Dr.Cowen the other day and left the office more terrified about procedures she wants to do. She didn't listen to me and told me that I didn't need the current treatment that I was on. It has worked well for 7 years. She was boastful about the procedure she has planned foir me. I would not recommend her to anybody
Would not recommend her to anyone, walked out of my last appointment due to hurting so bad and her not doing anything for me, was headed for ER but decided to go see Dr. Covey instead!
in Benton, Ar |
Dr. Cowan is rude, condescending, and worst of all, incompetent. She can't make an independent decision. She responds abruptly to her patients due to her professional insecurities.
in Beebe, Arkansas |
Excellent! Took time to explain everything. Very considerate.
in Little Rock, AR |
When I was referred to Dr. Cowan, I was concerned about going to see her because of some of the other reviews on this site. Those reviews couldn't be more wrong. She listened to everything I said, figured out my problem, and has done several procedures on me that have definitely helped. She focuses on treating the underlying problem though, and instead of giving out a lot of medication - maybe those other people just want pills.
in North Little Rock, AR |
There is no way I would recommend Dr. Cowan to anyone. She is condescending and insulting. She belittled my intelligence and insinuated that I was lying to her because her nurse had written down my response to her treatment incorrectly. I do not believe she has her patients' best interest at heart.
She did not listen to what I had to say. Wants to do procedurs that didn't work with other pain management doctors
in Hot Springs, AR |
Abrupt demeanor, doesn't listen intently. Seems like she just needs to listen more to her patients.
