Dr. Mia Cowan was kind, gentle and professional. Best combination for an OBGYN. Going to the lady doctor always makes me nervous but she made me feel completely at ease and suggested the best course of action with logical reasoning. Highly, highly recommend.
Dr.Cowen has the most amazing staff. Friendly, patient & extremely helpful. Dr.Cowen herself was a gem, patient, compassionate & really quick in making the exam "less awkward." She's open to listening and makes you feel as if you're speaking with an older friend. I definitely reccommend her.

Dr. Cowan is very friendly and addressed all of my questions. I was nervous because I had a less than stellar experience with another gynecologist in the past, so Dr. Cowan explained everything that was going on to ease my concerns. And the appointment was incredibly fast! I was out in an hour, including 30 minutes of new patient paperwork.

Love going here! Cowan is down to earth and very nice! She is very quick with provides painless Pap smears ( sorry if tmi just being honest) . What more could you ask for?
Dr. Cowan is phenomenal and so warm . The only compliant is how long I waited in exam room before I was seen. Will definitely be back to see her.
LOVE Dr. Cowan and her staff. Everyone is so sweet, everything is nice and clean, and the doctor is very knowledgeable. She genuinely cares about you. The only complaint I have is the wait time. I generally wait anywhere from 30-60 minutes past my appointment time before I actually see the doctor.
It was a great visit...usually is. I recommended in a previous visit that purse hangers be provided in the restroom and no slip socks be provided in the exam rooms as a courtesy. Hopefully they will consider the recommendations from here on out. Thanks, AS
Every visit is comforting. I am always nervous and uneasy about my yearly visit. The staff is always patient and soft spoken. I never feel like just another patient. I feel like an individual. Dr. Cowan's professionalism and leadership is reflective in her staff, as well. It's worth driving on HWY 280!
Very efficient and informative.
My visit was fantastic and far exceeded my expectations. This is what I've been looking for!
Love Dr. Cowan, but the staff not so much.
She is excellent, I was really comfortable.
Very personable. Friendly and willing to listen.
Dr. Cowan believes in educating her clients, she also participates in educating her staff and allowing interns to grow. I love her blog about health issues for women. She has a very busy practice, however, the wait time is reasonable. I am very satisfied with her and have referred two clients to her. They also feel the same. Sincerely, Lynell

Dr. Cowan is an excellent physician and worth the wait.
The visit and Dr. Cowan was wonderful. Dr. Cowan is good at what she does! I never feel rushed and she has great bedside manners. I only have a few suggestions. 1. Please have a purse hanger on the back of the restroom doors as well as the examination rooms. Since there isn't one in the restroom, I always have to place my purse on top of the paper towel dispenser which is always dusty. 2. It would be nice to have some socks provided for the patients for the stirrups so if we don't come to the office with socks on, we can put them on before the exam. 3. Both restrooms should have urine cups, markers, wipes, and an area to place the urine just in case the main patient restroom is in use. 4. If Dr. Cowan recommends something like a procedure, vitamins, etc., I wish the personnel that comes in with Dr. Cowan would write the information down and give it to the patient so we don't have to try to remember everything.
Dr. Cowan and her staff are the best. They are extremely efficient, professional, and friendly. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
I have been a patient of Dr. Cowan's for about 6 months now. I am a menopausal lady who was experiencing magnified symptoms. I had hot flashes so severe, I doubt very many could relate to. I was beyond miserable, burning from the inside out; and it was very embarrassing, breaking out in a sweat mid-conversation, and having sweat drip from my nose!! Dr.Cowan checked a long list of bloodwork, and treated me accordingly. She truly, has changed my daily life.
Dr. Cowan is an amazing physician. She and her staff always make me feel welcome and comfortable. I've recommended Dr. Cowan to friends, and she has been just as wonderful to them as well.
Wish I had her expertise when I was having female issues. My daughter is in good hands. Dr. Cowan explains everything and calms any concerns I may have regarding my daughter's healthcare.
I felt immediately at ease and listened to. I wish I had found Dr. Cowan sooner.
Very knowledgeable and helpful. Took the time to discuss all concerns. Very professional and kind.
As a new patient I was pleased to be in and out in 1 hour 45 minutes. I am hopeful about treatment to help me feel better. Staff was friendly and professional.

When I arrived at the office the lady that checked me and was very friendly. She had a very warm smile and explained everything to me upfront, as there was a slight difference in my insurance that I wasn't aware of. When I was called to the back everyone that I encountered had smiles on their faces and being a new patient that put me at ease. Dr. Cowan was WONDERFUL! She listened to everything I said and answered all of my questions.
I love it!!
I loved my visit..staff is so nice
OMG! The staff were exceptionally nice. From the moment I was called to the back until the moment I walked out, everyone smiled and appeared to enjoy their job. Dr. Cowan was extremely pleasant and her demeanor was very homey. From the moment she walked in the room, I felt comfortable talking with her. She made me feel like this was a start of a new relationship rather than just a doctor's visit. It was my first visit and I am confident I will want her to continue my care, especially once I decide to have my next child.
This was a first visit for me and I have already recommended her to a co-worker. Awesome bedside manner and made an uncomfortable appointment, not near as stressful as they usually are for me. Kept the conversation going but not so much that it was weird, lol.
Wonderful, great doctor...she is a caring doctor.

Great visit as usual. I got lost on the way so I would recommend a some sort of sign nearby.
Loved her!! She was super sweet!!
Every time I see Dr. Cowan I always have to wait at least an hour before I am seen by anyone.
Dr. Mia is extremely friendly and down to earth. I felt like I was talking with a friend rather than my gynecologist. I have NEVER felt this comfortable in a doctors office. I will recommend her to every woman I know. Dr. Mia is amazing!!!
