What People Say About Dr. Jacob Dowden, MD
Reply
Dr. Dowden sved my life with an emergency surgery on mid-March after my colon perforated. He was extremely attentive to my and my family during my near-death experience and recovery. He performed a colostomy at the time and 2 weeks ago was able to reverse the procedure. HE IS THE BEST! I would trust my family and friends to him without reservation. He went above and beyond for me.

I met with Dr. Dowden about removing my gallbladder. He suggested that it be removed after having other procedures done in the ER from other doctors. Surgery was very easy and went great! He is very friendly and will answer any questions that you may have! I would definitely recommend him for your surgery!!
