She listened to me about my problem and knew who to send me to work on the issue. When that issue was cleared up but another one developed she again knew who to send me to for evaluation. She is a very caring person and has compassion for her patients.

The time spent with my wife seemed to be more than adequate to map out procedure, answer questions, and to get to the cause of her condition.

In May 2018 I began experiencing debilitating vertigo and migraines. Many many doctors later I finally found Dr. Dowell and found help. I cannot say enough good things. Rather than just passing me off down the endless loop of referrals or just telling me well it could be a lot of things, she actually tried to help me and has. The problem is still not resolved, but we are working on it and things are slowly but surely getting better. I also feel like she takes a more holistic approach than others
