I'm impressed with the way the doctor. He was most helpful in his knowledge and explanation of my disease.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 28, 2019

Dr Cowley went above and beyond expectations in explaining my diagnosis, treatment, and winning my trust and confidence.

While I was at my appointment, my car was backed into in the parking garage of the OU physicians building causing major damage to my bumper. Who ever did this hit and ran, leaving no contact information. I contacted the parking garage and OU police and found there are NO surveillance cameras anywhere that might show who did this damage and so I can get the damage repaired. Surveillance cameras are cheap and easy to maintain. I am very disappointed that OU physicians does not have surveillance to protect their patents. I am very disappointed at this! I do not feel safe on your property.

Dr. Cowley is a really good guy and an outstanding physician. He is always extremely busy, I know, but he never rushes our appointment in any way and answers all the questions I pepper him with.

I love, love, love Dr. Cowley. Suffering from PKD he is on the of the top providers who specializes and studies my disease and he always has new treatment and information regarding this disease. I wouldn't trust my "Kidneys" to any other provider.
