Patient Comments (7)
Lafayette, LA |
I like Dr. Dowden very much. He spends time discussing any issues that may be pertinent and he always has time to answer questions.
in Abbeville, LA |
I would recommend Dr. Dowden to all my friends and family. He is very efficient and takes him time explaining things so that you will understand your medical issues.
in Youngsville, LA |
Dr. Dowden is, hands down, the greatest doctor my husband and I have ever seen. He is the very professional, and honest with his patients. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an internist!
in Kaplan, LA |
I am very happy I switched doctors to Dr Dowden. I feel like he actually cares about his patients and wants to see them do better. During my first visit with him, he said that he would like to work on getting me off cigarettes. I have not had a doctor that cared enough to straight up tell me that we will work on that. He also takes his time and is very thorough with his patients. I think this is going to be a positive experience. His nurse is also the best.
in Sulphur, Louisiana |
Dr. Dowden was very thorough with exam and information that was provided. He took the time to explain what I was going through and the possible treatments as well as referrals to other doctors that might be able to help me.
in Kaplan, LA |
I started visiting Dr Dowden recently. Dr Dowden and his nurses show concern for their patients and take their time in the exam room. I love his patient portal that they have online, as it is 2016, I can tell they are keeping up with the times and going electronic.
in Lafayette, LA |
Dr Dowden is very professional and friendly. He takes the time to listen to patients and consider all options for their care. He is really interested in how you feel. His staff is great. My husband also has him for his physican. Tony likes Dr Dowden and trusts in his care.
