I was very pleased with doctor Fowell and her staff. They explained everything as they went along and answered my questions. I felt at ease the entire time i was there.
in Rockford, IL |
Doctor Fowell's staff and Dr Fowell herself were very good examples of the best in medicine. From the first contact I was treated with compassion and respect and my concerns were addressed and answered unlike my previous visits with another area practice. Dr Fowell has a warm and friendly manner who gives me a feeling that I am in the best hands for my condition and I am so thankful that I found her and her staff. In my book, she's a 10 ! Her staff love her and she them and it shows.??

She has taken care of my Macular Degeneration for a number of years and done a wonderful job. I still have vision. I have friends who are now blind. I would recommend her any day.
