Dr. Cowan is a highly skilled surgeon and a wonderfully compassionate gentleman in whom I have full confidence. His attractive and well equipped office and friendly support staff reflect the professionalism of Dr. Cowan.

Was told he couldn't look at additional moles, as we only made an appointment for a specific mole?!? After waiting 9 months for that next appointment, we needed to adjust the appointment by a day or two due to another conflict. That new appointment? Nine more months. No thank you. Beautiful, over the top office paid for by working the system on appointments.

I have seen Dr Cowan multiple times. Each time he is in a rush, will not listen to my concerns, and halfway performs the treatments he applies. I will not be returning nor would I recommend him.

I would not recommend this doctor or office. My husband I were seen in 2013, the experience was mediocre. I called to make an appointment today and was told that our Tricare insurance would no longer be accepted. Upon retirement, after 20 years of military service, we were told that we could see any provider. If doctor was out of network, we would be responsible for charges not covered by Tricare. I was shocked to learn that Dr. Cowan would no longer accept Tricare period! Way to treat veterans.
