in Oak Park, MI |
I had a cornea transplant with Cowden @ Kresge. He's an awful Dr with no compassion. I was allergic to the preseratives in drops & was in constant pain. Every time I took a drop it felt like I was dropping pins in my eye. I went back to him several times & he acted like it was in my head He did nothing 4 me. I finally contacted the pharmaceutical co. It wasn't until the company contacted Cowden that he finally took it serious. It's awful going to a Dr 4 help and he wants nothing to do with u.
