Patient Comments (1)
in Decatur, GA |
I love Dr. McDowell! He diagnosed a long standing problem I had with my tear duct a few years ago and recommended a surgeon. The surgery was successful and I have not had any problems since. He takes a no - nonsense approach to medicine. HIs recommendations are not for the "latest and greatest" medical treatment. He genuinely takes the needs and lifestyle of the patient to heart.
