Review of Dr. Dowd

-

I see Dr. Dowd for treatment of my Ankylosing spondylitis. First I have to say that after years of trouble I finally got a diagnosis from Dr. Dowd. I have continually begun to feel better during the 2 years that I have been seeing him for care. I like the fact that he encourages a healthy lifestyle. I think it's a welcome change from doctors that push pain medications that are addictive and sometimes more harmful. You must be willing to put some work in to help yourself.

Review of Dr. Dowd

- in MI |

I don't understand people who go to a doctor for advice and then complain about the advice. Dr. Dowd suggested the pailo diet and I have lost 20 lbs. I am able to walk down the stairs in the morning without having to grab the rail as well as having the other hand on the opposite wall. I still have stiffness, more comfortable than before as it is reduced as I become more active. The doctor may seem reserved to some people (and this is my take) as so not to upset some. Great seance of humor.

I, like many of the other patients that left reviews, experienced the same type of behavior from Dr. Dowd. He spent the time with me lecturing on the Paleo diet and also that I needed to read this book and I would be cured. If diet and reading books would cure people, wow, why isn't that happening more often? I am not overweight but he wanted me to only eat 1 or 2 times a day, which goes against what my GI doctor wants me to do. Don't waste your time or $.

What a jerk. Focused the entire appointment on my weight and neglected what the blood work. Compared me to a rat. Yes dumb rats overeat and so do dumb humans. Smart rats can learn to eat healthy and so can smart humans. The smart patient found an intelligent physician who ordered the proper tests and discovered the real medical issue. One week into treatmenf-lost 10lbs. Learn your patients, their true diagnosis and not just their physical appearance. Complete waste of time and money.

Arrogant, wants to sell his book and vitamin he endorses. Completely focuses on the wrong things and loves to hear himself talk. He does not listen to the patient and seeing him is a waste of money and time.

I came to Dr Dowd on the recommendation of my PC. I found him to be arrogant and disinterested. I came with complaints of joint pain. That was not the focus of my appointment with him. He chose to focus on my weight, which he mention a dozen times, He insisted on the Paleo diet instead of what would reduce my daily pain. I knew it was possible I was diabetic and he dropped the info without care. I will not keep my follow up appt. as far as I’m concerned I wasted $156. I will go to my own Dr.

I would recommend Dr . Dowd to anyone suffering with RA. When I first came to see him I couldn't even put on my clothes without help. I do everything with my hands and every joint was inflamed and swollen. After treating with Dr. Dowd for two months I was back doing everything I could do before. I call him the Magic Man. Thank you Dr. Dowd
