Dr. Dowd replaced my left knee 9/6/2016, and recovery has been a breeze. After almost 7 months, I have full pain-free use of my knee, lost 20 pounds, and have resumed activities I could no longer do prior to surgery. I am 70 years old, active, and of healthy weight. I did all recommended exercises before surgery and still do many exercises the rehab therapist taught. Be sure to attend the pre-surgery class! Thank you, Dr. Dowd, for your incredible skills!!

Abrupt manner, didn't even look at the history I was required to complete. Within 5 min, he diagnosed my issue without asking questions about symptoms and said he saw "20" of these cases a day. Didn't offer any explanation of condition. Would not recommend this physician at all

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.
