29/11/13 5 5 5 5 Was extremely impressed with my squamous cancer removal on face. Incisions explained in detail& results to expect. Thought only melanoma metastasized, Wrong! Took two excision , sent to Lab & finally , interior scaffolding& thirty running stitches to close oval excision. Procedure was 5 1/2 hrs. Although told to expect 8-10 hrs. Felt thoroughly comfortable the whole time. A great doctor, best in Canada!

27/06/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Cowan recently completed MOHS surgery for cancer on my face. It is difficult to see the scar, despite the fact that it is quite extensive. He is the most reassuring, capable surgeon I have encountered. As an added bonus, he has a great sense of humour, which makes the experience less intimidating and more relaxed. I 100% recommend him!  Respond

20/06/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Cowan is hands down, the best doctor I've ever seen by far. Such a great bedside manner, puts you at ease, and is incredibly knowledgable in what he's doing. I had MOH's surgery on my nose four years ago at 27 years old and I am very happy with the result... carcinoma free and minimal scarring. Thank you Dr. Cowan!!!  Respond

14/02/13 5 5 5 5 Certainly lived up to the excellent ratings given by all of the reviewers. Dr. Cowan carried out the Moh's surgery with great skill, and his manner instilled confidence. The resident who stitched the incision under Dr. C.'s supervision did such an excellent job that today, only 3 weeks later I can't see a scar.

11/12/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Cowan is one of the nicest, most helpful doctors I have had the pleasure to meet. He is extremely busy but makes time for all his patients and has done a wonderful job with my facial mole removal. He really puts the patient at ease and is very easy to talk to. Although more on the expensive side, he is really the go to person for any dermatology concerns.  Respond

03/05/11 5 5 5 5 I had a basal cell carcinoma near my left ear and Dr. Cowan treated it with MOHS technique. The results are amazing. Almost no scar is visible. The tumor penetrated under the earlobe but no one can tell by the way it looks now. He answered patiently all my questions and had a really good and positive attitude throughout the process. I didn't feel anything during the operation and no pain afterward. The stitches were done professionally so no scars are evident at all. Due to his expertise in the MOHS technique Dr. Cowan removed as little tissue as possible. It's noteworthy that the 1st plastic surgeon who saw me (Dr Lorne Brown) was the complete opposite. He wanted to perform a much larger operation and remove much more tissue. He was insensitive to the fact that the tumor is on my face and requires good cosmetic result. He was very impatient to my questions. So when I pursued a 2nd opinion and met Dr Cowan I was amazed at the stark difference. For this type of treatment he is the best!  Respond

09/01/11 5 5 5 5 Amazing surgeon and excellent person. I had squamous cell cancer on my forehead. The surgery removed about a 2-inch circle of skin from my forehead. He was able to close it without a skin graft and about 50 stitches leaving a 5-inch scar from the top of my head to my eyebrow. A week after the surgery there was no scar at all. Now 3 weeks later, you wouldn't know I had the surgery. He is the most pleasant, knowledgeable, and competent doctor I have ever met. Ray Nikiel.  Respond
