One Star

Spinal fusion, attempted to straighten a spine on a senior citizen, now much pain in muscles. Before surgery I could do anything physically, now extremely limited due to pain except when sitting. He ruined & shortened my life.

Four Stars

Fused lower back. Never discussed trying to straighten lower spine for full length scoliosis. Screwed up spine, can't bend, walk, vacuum, exercise etc without being in much pain!! Ruined my life. Do NOT go to this Doctor!!!

Five Stars

Dr. McCowin was my surgeon for an ACL reconstruction surgery. He was excellent to work with and very responsive. He counseled against surgery until it was absolutely needed. I highly recommend him.
