I would recommend Dr . Dowd to anyone suffering with RA. When I first came to see him I couldn't even put on my clothes without help. I do everything with my hands and every joint was inflamed and swollen. After treating with Dr. Dowd for two months I was back doing everything I could do before. I call him the Magic Man. Thank you Dr. Dowd
