A very positive and helpful visit. She understood the nature of my concerns and provided a helpful plan for treatment. Excellent.

She is one of the best doctors at UPMC.

March 17, 2015

Stellar clinician, knowledgeable and compassionate.

February 05, 2015

I had a good experience with Dr. Sowa...she explained all my concerns that I'm dealing with right now.

December 18, 2014

I have voiced the same concern to another provider, who did not address my concern, or touch the part of my body that was causing my concern. Dr. Sowa asked specifically where I was experiencing a problem, touched the area, and had a diagnosis in minutes. After 3 previous appointments with other providers, I had a diagnosis which made sense to me, and a plan to solve the problem.

November 04, 2014

I have never experience any bad experiences associated with Dr.Sowa, she has been a real miracle worker for me when no other physician could relieve me of the excruciating pain that was crippling my physical self and causing me a depression because no-one could give me the proper medication.
