This was my first time meeting with Dr. Cowan. I thought he was a good listener, did a good job explaining medical issues (for example, bringing up my recent lab results on the large screen and talking through the numbers with me), and spent a good amount of time with me. He was listened to me concerns, was respectful, and suggested I could follow-up with him through the patient portal if I had other questions or concerns (since my last primary care provider is leaving Virginia Mason and I don't have another regular provider yet).

Dr Cowan is a very good doctor. I've heard many others talk about their doctors and it always is a bunch of complaints or issue related. It's as if their doctors don't care all that much. I am fortunate that I have a doctor that has genuine care and interest in my health and concerns. I do recommend him to others.

Dr. Cowan is an excellent doctor an is always looking out for my welfare. He constantly looks at my prescriptions and is aware of news relative to them. He often times recommends new ones to replace the current ones. I am highly satisfied with his care.
