Patient Reviews

Dr. Gowen is beyond what anyone could expect. Over a week ago, (2/24/18) I took a very nasty fall in the Wynnewood Shopping center. There was a woman at The ATM and when she finished I called to her for help as I was unable to get up. Dr. Gowen came to my rescue, and told me I needed to go to the EMG, Room as I had a nasty gash on my nose. At first. all I want to do was to go home but she prevailed upon me to listen to her advise as she was a plastic surgeon. ( In Nov. 2017 Dr. Gowen had done some reconstruction work on my nose which turned out beautifully). As soon as she said she was a plastic surgeon , I ask, if she was Dr. Gowen, she said yes, and then I agreed to go to the Hosp., she drove my car to Bryn Mawr Hosp., and put my face back together. What are the chances of after falling, having a Dr. that you knew, come to your aid and be able to do the surgery -- a million in one! Dr. Laura Gowen was my special angel that night, and I will always be thankful for all that she did for me. YES, the quality of care was above and beyond any expectations I could have ever had. — Mary F.
Dr. Gowen is an excellent physician. She's friendly, listened to me, attentive, explained the procedure well and does outstanding work. I am very pleased with my results. — Nancy S.
Dr. Gowen is the absolute best! I have complete trust in her. I know that she will do exactly what I ask. — Helen H.
