Dr. John Fowler was outstanding. He squeezed me in after a scheduling mix-up, and was most gracious about it. He thoroughly explained my surgery in terms anyone could understand. If there was a 6-Star fating, he would get it from me. I have full confidence in him for my thumb surgery next week....more
