Dr Sowa is one of the few best doctors and this clinic one of the best practices I have ever been fortunate enough to visit!

I have had osteoarthritis for at least 7 years. I shudder to think how crippled up and what grocery bag full of pain medications that I would be swallowing if it wasn't for Dr. Sowa. For me, she has been a very real game-changer in the treatment of my osteoarthritis. Moreover, her office staff is simply the best. They are not only professional, but friendly, cheerful, and extremely efficient. When an appointment has to be rescheduled, or a report needs to be tracked down, they are on top of it. Two thumbs way up!
