Patient Comments (2)
in Magnolia, AR |
Dr. Lower is my doctor as I struggle with Meniere's disease. She took the time to listen to me and cared about the struggles that this disease brings. She is also the ENT for two of my three kids. She has put in 4 sets of tubes for them in all, and has been excellent with each one. She takes the time to talk to the parents and obviously cares about our kids. Her audiologist Jody Seals is also fantastic with them, and my oldest enjoys his hearing tests with her!
in Hughes Springs, Tx |
Dr. Lower makes her own phone calls! She called me the day after my appointment to explain what had been found in a CT scan that was done for an injury a couple of weeks ago. Dr. Lower took the extra step to look at that rather than have me pay for another one. She listens and asks substantial questions as opposed to the normal doctor who makes assumptions. I'm confident in her skill set.
