What People Say About Dr. John Tower, DO
Reply
I feel so fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Tower a few years ago. As a young person dealing with a handful of scary health problems, Dr. Tower works hard to make my quality of life a lot better. I always feel like he takes the time to listen to my concerns, explain to me what is occurring when I am dealing with certain symptoms, and help me with the most appropriate treatment, even when I'm traveling and need help in a pinch with a flare. I'm so thankful for Dr. Tower and his staff.
