Davenport, FL |
I was a new patient with servere OA and pain. Was referred by HOFRMC ER Dept. Dr gave me a inj. of medro-depo in my knee straight on, without numbing the site. It was the most painful 2 min. experience. That wasn't the worst part. Hopped to check-out and was told that there was no follow-up need. For me to call them if I needed to come back. After 1 week, went to a different specialist (since I didn't seem valued at Dowdy), had an MRI shown torn meniscus. Dr drained off 40cc of fluid. WOW..

my husband went to see him since he could barely walk once we got here from Mass since he was messed up with Physical Therapy, Dr Dowdy gave him some leg exercises to do and then to ride a stationary bike everyday and when we left the office my husband said no way was this going to work. Well it has and he is doing so much better and is improving every day. Thanks Dr Dowdy for all the help.

I have Carpal Tunnel and was referred to Dr Dowdy, I got X-rays done and no lead cover was given to me. When I asked for an extension of my time off I was told "As a workers comp doctor I will always send you back to work immediately." When I explained there is no light duty at my work and by doing my job I will injure my hand further he said "As a workers comp doctor I will always send you back to work". I've not even had a nerve test yet or PT, but I'm going back to work to injure my hand more
