Paso Robles, CA |
Absolutely horrible. I had X-rays done on Tuesday that showed a fracture in my elbow, someone recommended this office to me, so I called and they had me urgently drop my X-rays off. It's now been 2 days and I haven't heard a single thing from them. Why would you tell me I need to drop them off as soon as possible for him to look at when he won't even look at them for two days?! So disappointing. Picking up the X-rays and taking them elsewhere.

For a knee problem I was having, Dr Kowall presented the pluses and minuses of surgical intervention in a consultative manner, neither advocating or admonishing, leaving the decision to me. I had been inclined towards surgical intervention prior to the visit, but after the discussion, decided to forego a procedure -- a decision I remain satisfied with 1 year after the visit. I am an active cycler and swimmer and returned to full activity after a gradual approach of self-directed rehab.
