Dr. Robert Cowan’s childhood is one hound dog short of a country song. Dr. Cowan comes from Hillsboro—a small farming town 30 miles north of Waco. Wearing boots, working his family’s 100-year-old cattle ranch and playing football under Friday night lights made for an all-American, down-home upbringing. “I think growing up in a small town helped me in medicine more than I realize,” he says. “Small towns value relationships fiercely—and that’s what medicine, particularly OB/GYN, is all about.” Cowan’s easy manner and approachability is also something he attributes to his past. “Small towns have a slower pace of life, and I think that translates into my having a more laid-back demeanor, which my patients really connect to.”
