I've been seeing Dr. Cowley for 3 -4 years now for my deteriorating left knee joint. His care has been consistently excellent. He excells in his knowledge of joints and joint degeneration, compassion and care, listening and responding in a way that I can understand without knowing the medical intricacies that he knows, and immediacy of care. I am proceeding now with a knee replacement with him because I trust that with him, I will receive an excellent replacement and recovery care. That with him, my replacement will be a success. Dr. Cowley is truly an excellent physician and surgeon. I recommend him to all my aging friends!

August 12, 2020
Dr. Cowley is outstanding. He did a right hip replacement for me two years ago, the outcome has been amazing! With the talent this doctor has, with the work he completed on me, I feel like a whole new person; he has given me a new lease on life. He is extremely kind and takes the time to help me understand the issue at hand. During my last surgery, his bedside manner was above reproach. When I began having problems with my left hip, my insurance company asked if I would accept treatment from any orthopedic surgeon. My answer was, "absolutely not." Dr. Cowley is the only doctor I will accept for any type of treatment for my hip. Dr. Cowley is extremely skilled and I am grateful when I first began this journey of hip problems, I was referred to him.

The people taking the Xrays were personable and professional.
March 26, 2020
I have been seeing Dr. Daniel Cowley for care for my arthritic left knee for over two years. I have found his care to be excellent. His staff responds to my emailed requests the same day that I send them, and I get an appointment date right away. Dr. Cowley's cortisone shots to my knee are expertly done. I feel relief from stiffness and pain right away and the effect of the shot lasts well beyond its "normal" effectiveness timeline. Dr. Cowley recently diagnosed a damaged tendon in my right knee. He listened to my questions and was empathetic with my situation. He immediately prescribed a brace which alleviated the pain and helped me remain mobile, and physical therapy which was critical to healing completely. I couldn't have been happier with my care from him. I have healed completely and am back to my daily walks and other exercise!
March 25, 2020
All the people I have been in contact with have been excellent.
March 25, 2020
Dr Cowley and Sam his assisant ( Sam is awesome ,she is very very helpful and knowledgeable , she always gets right back to me; usually within an hour ) i FEEL VERY BLESSED TO HAVE THESE TWO

March 11, 2020
Sam the M.A. Excellent service!!
March 11, 2020
It was my first and only visit with Dr. Crowley so far. I found him to be very concerned with the pain I was experiencing and felt he really had my best interest at heart. For two months, I was in pain 24/7. He recommended a cortisone shot and it has been instant relief. I'm now following up on his recommendation with physical therapy with the hope of not needing a knee replacement and to get my strength back.
March 11, 2020
Dr. Cowley is very good at communication. He obviously knew the situation, offered suggestions, advice, information, was clear in what he communicated.
March 04, 2020
March 03, 2020
Dr D Cowley has been a gift to me! I've dealt with increasing discomfort for over 15 years, becoming more and more unable to do the things I enjoy. He has eliminated the pain and given back my mobility and desire to engage in the things I once did. My family sees the difference and also feels very appreciative toward him. [ ], also involved in my care plan has always provided excellent care and guidance. I have always felt genuine concern from both of them and will be forever grateful for their care, knowledge and gifted expertise!
March 02, 2020
I appreciated the confidence that Dr. Cowley showed in being able to resolve my hip problems.
February 27, 2020
Everyone was great.
February 24, 2020
Yes. We recently moved from Ontario, Ore. Since 2004 I've had both knees and both hips replaced. Latest, right hip [date]. We relocated in [date] to Grants Pass. I needed a R shoulder replacement badly. I was referred to Dr. Nugent. Dr.Nugent is very skilled surgeon. I should know, I had plenty of major surgeries. He and his PA Jessica were so patient and kind before and post-surgery. I was scheduled for PT with Sara Haga. WOW, this young lady is very professional, and very thorough. Easiest recuperation I've experienced. Now, my R hip is bothering mostly when I walk on it. I was referred to Dr. Cowely. Only one visit so far, next tomorrow [date], to go over my bone density imaging results and the prognosis. I have the up most confidence in Dr. Cowely. Asante is equal or better than [ ]. where I had all 4 major surgeries.
February 21, 2020
Dr. Cowley and his staff are very caring, professional and I would recommend them highly to anyone who needed their services. I have always felt that I am in good hands and appreciate the care they have provided. [name]

Dr. Cowley is an amazing person as well as an excellent surgeon. He is committed to excellence and positive outcomes. He has replaced both my knees and has replaced a very bad hip joint and revised a knee replacement for my husband all in the last year.

We, my husband and I, are extremely happy with our surgical outcomes and look forward to a more active lifestyle thanks to the Dr. Cowley and all the Asante Team.

I chose Dr Cowley as my surgeon because he had been so kind with one of my residents who he was treating. Dr Cowley is kind and considerate and explains the procedures that he performs in a way that was easily understood by myself. He put me so at ease during the entire pre ops thru to my post op. I recommend Dr Cowley to everyone I talk to about my surgery. His assistant Sam is pretty awesome also. Whenever I called with a question or concern, she would always get back to me in a timely fashion. I didnt get any of the receptionist names, but the woman at the first was always friendly and has a beautiful smile.
