Patient Reviews (2)
in Nebo, NC |
I was a patient of his years ago but switched due to insurance requirements and working out of town. Recently my insurance and job changed, so I decided to return to McDowell Medical Associates. Now you have to get approval to be seen, and I was declined and refused services. When I asked why, I was told that they didn't provide reasons.
The only negative I have to relate is in getting an appointment with him. It takes a month or more and they just tell you to go to their walk-in clinic. Seeing a PA is the norm.
