Having spent much more time in the company of doctors than I would have preferred, these last few years, I'd particularly like to thank Dr Cowen for her patience, her consideration and her dedication. She has acted as a single point of contact for my family, when we needed it, and follows up with me regularly - often by phone - to make sure hospital appointments, tests, treatment plans etc are being carried out as they should.
This was a very frustrating and disappointing appointment. This is not the first time they have not listened to me or taken me seriously. I am so disappointed in GP's, this was not the first time that an issue that I have had, that has had a serious negative impact on my life has not been taken seriously.
Dr Cowen has looked after me and my family for a long time, but particularly helped me when I was diagnosed Diabetic and showed me how to control and improve my condition. I cannot recommend and thank Dr Cowen highly enough.
Dr Cowen put me forward for special programmes which needed funding and I was successful. After a 3 year battle with my health, I am now ready to go back to work and I am very grateful for all the help and special care she gave me. She was always very helpful and understanding and was very clear and practical in her direction and advice.
