Not good at all !! I had left knee replacement done in April 2015 and still suffering from pain. Been back numerous times I was told the pain was all in my head. Dr Dowd did not do any testing to even try to find out my problem. He never had a answer for me. You might said he just left me hanging. Bedside manner stinks ! Just rude !!!! Found out I have a stress fracture and all I was ever told it takes time and had to except the fact I had a knee replacement !!

Since my surgery this year. I have been in constant pain. I have not had a restful night. Every time I have been seen, he don't know why I am in pain. I will never recommend him to anyone. Now I have to find someone who can help me. Every since my surgery I have been walking with a cane.
