Dr Sowa is an excellent back doctor.

I have consistently gotten excellent care from this provider - she and her staff are "feathers in the UPMC cap."

April 26, 2016

Dr. Sowa is excellent. She listens to what you have to say and doesn't push pills on you. I like a doctor that gives you other options than just take a pill. I would definitely would recommend her to others.

Great care, it was my first visit and I am happy I found this doctor .

February 25, 2016

This team was excellent. It was very clear they were all on the same page as far as how to treat a patient. The flow was very organized. The only area of improvement could be the waiting time in the exam room. That felt a little too long.

February 11, 2016

I was very impressed with the entire office staff, physical therapist, and Dr. Sowa. A very thorough visit.
