Dr. Cowan and his staff were very friendly and timely. They were very understanding when I arrived late to my appointment. They did not keep me waiting long. He took the time to get to know me and gave me recommendationsfor other doctors, since I was new to Austin. He made me feel welcomed as a new patient and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Even though I was late to my appointment, I was seen quickly after checking in. The receptionists, nurses, and Dr. Cowan were all very friendly and comforting. The actual appointment was fast--almost too fast for my liking since I barely gotto ask my most important question before the doctor slipped out of the room. But I did get all of my questions more or less answered and made a follow-up appointment before leaving.

He is a wonderful doctor, very patient, answered all my questions and did not make it seem like he was in a hurry and did not have time for me. My friend was here when he came in to talk withme and she is ready to switch doctors right now, he impressed her that much.
