Dr Dowd himself is not the problem with this practice. His problem is his unprofessional staff especially his nurse, Jennifer. She is rude, unwilling to help and has no empathy toward the needs of the patient going so far as to tell me today that my need for prescription refill is not a priority since I am not in office. Been out of meds almost a week. She is not concerned .

Dr. Dowd became my neurologist as the result of a head injury. His staff was cold-hearted and distant. I only saw him when he had to tell me I had to have surgery on my brain. I had to follow up a week later to have the staples removed, and they would not schedule a follow up appointment because I had obtained an attorney to take care of the medical bills. After months of recovery, they never-ever even bothered to pick up the phone to see how I was doing.
