This guy is a complete joke!!! Just trying to pad his pocket before retirement. He'll tell you stories about his "Hollywood son" more than he'll examine you or care about you. THIS GUY IS ABSOLUTE COMPLETE GARBAGE!!!

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.
