Dr. Lowney is compassionate and easy to talk to about your health issues. He has a great pleasant manner and can even ask the hard questions of the not so great patients like me. He makes me want to care for myself better.

Excellent doctor and current in all conditions and treatments. He is empathetic and takes the time to address concerns. I saw the comment that Dr. Lowney is passive aggressive. He is far from that. He jokes with his patients but is compassionate and informative and easily accessible. His staff are just as kind. I wish more doctors were as so honest and caring.
