Patient Experiences

March 29, 2021
Where do I start.... Dr. Cowley, Heidi, and the entire staff were beyond any expectations that I had. My experience with the staff and Dr. Cowley was so relaxed and efficient. After my 1st consultation with Dr. Cowley I was sent downstairs to have my blood work, EKG, chest x-ray and to give a urine sample and that went as smoothly as glass on a table. 2 days later I was scheduled for surgery. It was a great experience from start to finish, THANK YOU EVERYONE
March 29, 2021
Happy with the care I had.
March 27, 2021
Dr. Cowley and the entire team at Asante who cared for me pre and post surgery were top notch. His nurse Heidi is amazing and I feel so comfortable and confident with her. If she says she's going to do something, she does it and she responds to questions through the portal quickly. He has a great team.
March 26, 2021

Dr, Cowley was great. I heard from a friend that he was the best.When I meet him i understood what my friend was saying.He first had me tell him what was my problem because i had been seen by a few doctors before him.He then did a few motion tests, then off to x-ray and back to him for review.He explained the x-ray and why i needed a total hip. He was very, very nice and polite. I will come back tohim again and tell everyone to go to him for Orthopedic Surgery. Love you Doc.

February 26, 2021
Dr. Cowley was the one who did the surgery for my husband when he fell and broke his hip. I was so impressed with him, his willingness to answer all our questions and the compassion he showed my husband. I determined then he would be the doctor I would want if we had a need for orthopedic surgery in the future.
February 25, 2021
Everybody with one exception were excellent . They appeared capable, Professional and friendly. I would certainly will not feel anxious about any future appointments at this clinic.The one exception was the check in clerical staff member who was unsmiling and seemed curt in her Responses.

Heidi, in Dr. Cowley's office, was extremely helpful with details, surgery information, and encouragement about the procedure. She is extremely knowledgeable, sensitive to personal issues, and positive in her approach with each patient. Dr. Cowley provides a straightforward approach to the hip replacement surgery, with concise details and high expectations for the patient and himself. He is obviously very savvy about the latest techniques and technologies for successful surgical procedures. I attended the joint replacement seminar today and found Dr. Cowley and his team to be well prepared and relatable. Impressive!

Heidi always got back to me immediately when I had a question about ANYTHING regarding my surgery including pre op and post op.I have had 6 knee surgeries in the past 10 years.

Doctor Cowley and the whole team associated with him.
January 14, 2021
Dr. Cowley's personal attention to both my total knee replacements. His staff's encouragement and friendly, easy conversations. From the check in person, assistants, xray techs, nurses. The hospital staff for both surgeries, August and December were incredible. Very attentive. Encouraging. Friendly. Responsive. The best two surgical experiences I've ever had (and I've had plenty)!
January 14, 2021
Dr. Cowley is an excellent surgeon and has an awesome recovery program. He gave me a total knee replacement. The drugs he prescribed controlled my pain comfortably those first two weeks. His physical therapy program is terrific with the Asante HomeCare group, starting my exercise therapy program in the comfort of my home and answering my recovery questions right away. After HomeCare, Siskyou Physical Therapy provided excellent care and supervision of my exercise/recovery program. I actually looked forward to going to PT! Dr. Cowley is compassionate, knowledgeable, very responsive and professional.I must mention Dr. Cowley's nurse assistant, Heidi. She is amazing!! She responded to my questions the very same day; seeking immediate approval from Dr. Cowley to refill my pain meds for my comfort; and, empathetically reminded me of the extent of knee replacement surgery ... that healing takes time, patience, and "ice and exercise!" Thank you, Heidi!! It was a pleasure working with you!!

I am most grateful to Dr. Cowley, who is the only Orthopedic surgeon at Asante willing to take on high risk patients. I owe my drastically improved quality of life to him. His care was flawless, and his required joint replacement seminar for patients should be a best practice standard in my opinion. All of the health care professionals involved in my care were outstanding. I'd like to give a special thanks to Heidi, MA at the clinic.

She was patient, compassionate and helpful during these highly stressful times in the face of the pandemic's impact on the entire health care delivery system.

He does not `experiment' with other surgical implant companies. He also provided the total implant class for patients needing surgical intervention.

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 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.
August 07, 2020
The doctors and staff at Asante have been outstanding in my opinion. They are always right there for me.

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

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
