Patient Comments (6)
The staff and surgeons are nice. They are owned by the hospital they do the surgery at in Decatur. If your insurance will pay for your band removal but not your revision they will offer you a "discounted" rate for the revision and make 5x as much off of you when your insurance pays for the lapband removal. They did not offer to assist in getting my insurance to pay for the revision. Their billing policies make me not trust them.
in Ringling, ok |
Very good surgeon his staff is also very good would highly recommend this doctor
Fort Worth |
Customer service complete fail. You will only meet Dr. Stowers once through the entire process. Staff is friendly but they do not take care of the patients. Would not recommend him to my worst enemy.
in Edmond, OK |
I work in the medical field and after first consulting with a physician in Oklahoma, I chose Dr. Stowers. From the front desk staff, nursing, nutritionist, billing, and then Dr. Stowers, I was totally satisfied with their professionalism. He is an amazing surgeon with a God-given talent. He made a difference in my life, and I would recommend him to anyone with a weight problem.
