      Dr Cowin was easy to talk to and easily identified my neck and left shoulder problem. Within a few weeks he was able to clear up my problem. I am very happy with his care and his medical solutions for healing my neck and shoulder.

      Dr. Cowin is a good doctor to discuss healthcare issues with. He listens and explains his diagnosis clearly. He immediately focuses on the problem. His prescription program provided relief for my shoulder. I consider him to be my orthopedic doctor in case of future issues and have recommended him to friends with similar issues.

      I've seen Dr. Cowin 3 times and the 1st time he gave me a shot in my shoulder and it didn't really take away the pain, then he sent me to physical therapy and now I'm being told I have to have surgery because I still have no range of motion in my right arm. I'm feeling skeptical and maybe like I should get a second opinion. The doctor was very nice and spent time talking to me but not sure if I feel comfortable going to his colleague who has several bad reviews for my surgery.

      Dr. John Cowin has been my doctor for 12 or more years. He listens and takes time to explain things and lets you know what your options are to correct the problem. I am well satisfied with him as my doctor and have recommended him to others who are havin simuliar problems. I trust him to do what needs to be done.

      I have visited with Dr Cowin several times over several months now. Each and every time he spent as much time with me as I needed. I found him friendly and caring and I have respect for the way he explains treatment and long term expectations.

      Dr. Cowin did my hip replacement in 2006. He has been there for me with all my problems I have had afterward. I had knee problems and after checking my hips said I needed inserts for my shoes to level the hips because it is hard to judge what will happen with the leveling of hips after surgery. The fact that the office seems to have whatever type of doctor and help you need is right there for you. He is a VERY caring doctor.

      A great doctor: thorough, human, great conversationist, fabulous sense of humor, genuinely interested in patient care. Dr. Cowin never "Phones it in;" he spends as much time as necessary to solve the problem.

      Dr. Cowin listens to you and then gives you honest answers about treatments, alternatives and expectations. He takes the time to get it right and sometimes there is a wait because of this. I trust his very experienced judgment.
