After seeing Dr. Towle for a broken finger I left the office with about $0.50 worth of medical tape. No splint, no additional instructions. Just a taped finger. As a result of that medical ineptitude I had to see a competent medical professional that did address the broken finger but unfortunately the time between that visit and the one with Towle left my finger locked which resulted in me having to have physical therapy. Save your time and money and do not seek medical care from this doctor

Did not even touch or look at my hands only the referral report. Promised follow up in 24 hours and got none in a week. No personality, no explaining, just terrible bedside manor. Sad. So Sad
