Of all my doctors Dr Dowell is at the top of the list. She is extremely knowledgeable about what is going on and has the ability to impart that knowledge back to me. It has helped tremendously and cut down the anxiety I have of what the future holds. Can't say enough good things about her.

I take my mother to see Dr. Dowell. She is patient with my mother, offers to turn on a heater if she is cold, and has a calm and friendly demeanor. She explains procedures and answers questions so I can understand. She is experienced and knowledgeable. We are comfortable with her and trust her judgement. I highly recommend Dr. Dowell.

My husband has been treated by Dr. Dowell since she joined the practice for symptoms related to a traumatic brain injury. He has persistent headaches as a result. Dr. Dowell is empathetic, down to earth, and is aware of new treatment options. She explains the pros and cons of those options and lets us choose. I really appreciate her family centered approach! Also, her Assistant, Charlene, is wonderful! Charlene is so pleasant and efficient. She has been so helpful in getting new treatments approved with our insurance company.

I was very impressed with Dr. Dowell. She took quite a bit of time with me and explained, in detail, what she saw and what she thought was happening with me. Together we decided the course of action we would take at this time. She was pleasant, spoke with my husband and myself as equals, and was a joy to engage with. I highly recommend her.

I have never spent such a long time with a physician nor had a more though examination. Dr. Dowell spent well over an hour evaluating my condition, asked lots of questions and very systematically reviewed my symptoms. She is a very pleasant person with great bed side manners. I was originally referred to St. Lukes but due to a snafu on St. Lukes part, I ended up with Dr. Dowell for which I feel very fortunate!
