So sweet & polite & compassionate. I get so nervous at the Dr but everyone at Dr Cowan's office made me feel so comfortable. I was called in right away, I didn't have to wait in the exam room for morethan 1-2min before the nurse practitioner came in & started my exam. She was beyond amazing. I would definitely recommend this Doctor & this office.

I really do enjoyed my visit to Mibella Wellness Center. Most of my interaction was with the nurse practitioner Santanna, she was very nice, professional, and knowledgeable. And once Dr. Cowan came in she was just the same! I would highlyrecommend this office and team to someone, just be prepared to wait a little bit, but hey when good work is being done it shouldn't be a surprise to have a lobby full of patients.
