Not whst I was hoping for. Didn't do much to help my back pain. The last time that I was in to see him he just sat and stared at me while I was telling him about my pain. Will not go back to him.

I've been a patient of Dr. Dowdle's for 8 years with various back issues. He has always provided me with excellent care. His treatment plans have been effective and he has taken time to educate me on my issues. I would absolutely recommend him to friends and family.
