Excellent! There is no sugar coating with Dr. Lowery. You come to him to have him provide you with a precise diagnosis and with what your options are in your best interest. If you come to him with an agenda and have been scouring google to see how many different opinions you can get to base your Orthopaedic decisions. Then maybe you already have your answers and need to schedule with someone who is not a professional and will base your prognosis on what you decide. If you decide to see him then keep an open mind and listen carefully to what a professional opinion is, weight your options and make a concise decision.

Dr. Lowery explained exactly what my problem was with my shoulder and explained all of my options for treatment. He showed me my X-RAY and pointed out what the problem was and showed me what my shoulder would look like if I had a completely healthy joint. He sat down and asked me if I had questions for him, answered all of my questions and made sure that I understood what he was telling me. He didn’t rush me, he was very professional, he showed concern for me and made sure that I was comfortable with all of what he was explaining to me. Dr. Lowery has replaced both of my knees in the past and made sure that I was not having any problems with my past surgeries. I have 100% confidence in Dr. Lowery. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lowery and his staff to anyone with any joint problems.

Some background. I had been experiencing pain in my right knee for time. I visited my primary care doctor, who examined it and ordered an MRI. The MRI results indicated I needed to see an Orthopedist. So, I did research on the internet, asked my doctor for recommendations and talked with people who had knee replacements. All of these led me to Dr. Lowery. I met with Dr. Lowery this week. X-Rays were performed at Orthopaedic Associates the day of my appointment. He reviewed my MRI and X-Ray results which revealed significant medial meniscus damage and some other abnormalities. We then discussed several treatment options. The good news, as it turns out, is that he did not recommend a knee replacement at this time. The chosen treatment is a knee brace to take stress off my knee for now. I was pleased with my overall experience at Orthopaedic Associates. Dr. Lowery took his time, listened to my concerns, and treated me with respect. I would recommend him based on my experience.

Dr. Lowery did my knee surgery a few years ago and did a great job. I was relieved when I found out he would be the one to fix my sons wrist and once again was very pleased with the outcome.

Dr Lowery missed damage to my femoral nerve . I finally had a EMG after I was forced to leave Evansville and lost over 90% of the function. It should have been found before I was banned for non compliance. Way to go!
