I love this doctor cause he took my pain away!!!! that I have had for over 15 years. Thank Dr. Kowlowitz very much for taken care of me!!!
in Carmel, Indiana |
Dr. Kowlowitz spent a lot of time listening to my lifelong history of lower back pain and all the treatments I've previously tried. He was very patient and asked really good questions about frequency of my pain, what's worked and what didn't and activities that make it worse. He made a very accurate diagnosis and his treatment recommendations really work. I wish I had met him years ago.

I really did not want to leave a review like this but it is necessary. First there is the office visits. Every office visit in Lafayette is so far is a two hour wait before you are seen. Then there was no comparison of MRI after I even called the office ahead of time to make sure it would be done. I had a procedure done which I was told I was going to be put under and I would feel no pain. I was given a local and the physician hit nerve which about sent me off the table.
in Nashville, Indiana |
I would highly recommend Dr. Kowlowitz to anyone I know. Not only is he very attentive to his patients, but his staff is wonderful as well.I finally have a doctor that wants to help me. He has created a plan for me. Procedures start soon and I couldn't be more thrilled. I have hope!! Thank you Dr. Kowlowitz from the bottom of my heart!
