Dr. Lowry was my surgeon at Providence Medical Center for my cholecystectomy. His care was excellent, I felt that he truly listened to my concerns both prior to and after the surgery. I had a quick recovery and felt that he and his staff were with me on this journey. Excellent care, very kind and professional bedside manner, and I would highly recommend him.

There's no words to say how good Dr. Lowry is! He's done so many good things for me, he has the best bedside manners...I would never hesitate to go under his care at any time. And honestly I don't want anybody else working on me! His nurse Amy is amazing also, Amy gets things done in a timely manner and she's very kind! Dr. Lowry and Amy make a very good team and I would never hesitate to recommend Dr. Lowry!

I was diagnosed with gastroparesis in 2013 and was referred to Dr. Lowry to do a pyloroplasty and two feeding tubes. He is an excellent doctor and surgeon. He treats you like you truly care. I am still his patient today and considering a gastrectomy. I put all my trust in him to do what is best for me and to take great care of me during surgery. If I ever have questions he is more than happy to answer them and take his time to fully explain everything.

Excellent surgeon with a great office staff. I was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2015 Dr Lowry was able to remove all the cancer and get me back on my feet in a timely manner. Not to mention he has a great bedside manner.
