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.
