Doctor Fowler himself seems to be a good Doctor. His staff are incompetent and inept. From telling the patient over the phone that the hernia results were not abnormal (when in fact it needed surgery) to giving us the wrong date for the MRI to neglecting to get PCP pre-auth for the surgical consult, resulting in a wasted morning. They didn't particularly care that they had made mistakes or that they could have advised us on what steps to take. They were very happy to take our money though.

was unable to get timely appts and did not get MRI or biopsy reports until 2 - 3 weeks after it was posted on hospital portal. Had my husband listen with me on speaker phone as all information was given over phone by his assistant and never actually talked to him except during initial appt. Was given misdiagnosis twice and MRI and biopsy info was read off the charts by his nurse. Was told I had nothing to worry about or no follow up needed after being told I had early non alcohplic cirrhosis.

I have seen a lot of doctors over the 20 years of having Crohn's disease, and Dr. Fowler is one of the best. He gives you his full attention, listens to all your concerns and try to help you get better. If you are looking for a GREAT Gastroenterology doctor then Dr.Fowler is the best. He always puts my worry's to rest, and find best way to help with way health issues. I have been with him over 7 years, and wouldn't choose another. Dr. Fowler is the BEST!!
