When I moved back to CO in 2010 I was seeing a GI doctor close to me and he only wanted to give me steroids to help the conditions I have along with humira and neither worked. I did some research and found Dr Dowgin in 2011. I have been with him since and have had no problems. He is a very good, patient doctor and answered all of my questions for procedures. He made sure I understood everything. I am still with his office today. He retired in March 2019 so I will now see someone in his office. I highly recommend his office for all of your GI needs.

A simple colonoscopy that almost cost me my life. DO NOT USE THIS DOCTOR. Think seriously about the institution that has him on staff also.

I can't think of a single negative thing about Dr Dowgin. He is the best doctor I've ever found. After seeing 3 other Gastroenterologists whom either downplayed my extensive problems or misdiagnosed my disease, this gentleman has been a life saver. I understand now why he has such high reviews. He is not only an excellent doctor, but he is kind, thorough and attentive. I hope he never retires!

I first saw Dr Dowgin 2-1/2 years ago. My first impression was that he’s very intelligent and caring. I saw him again yesterday with a complicated issue. He answered my many questions very patiently, and explained his answers completely. I like and trust him.

There’s no option to leave zero stars. My husband almost didn’t live through Dr Dowgin’s colonoscopy. The procedure took 2 1/2 hours and they sent him home bleeding after Dr Dowgin told me he couldn’t get get it stopped. When we called to ask about his symptoms once he was home, neither he nor his assistant called us back. Ever. We ended up in the emergency room with two blood transfusions two bags of plasma, and an emergency colonoscopy to repair the botched work.

He asked a few questions to which I attempted to answer, I lose my words a lot so I pause trying to figure out what I was trying to say. He rudely cut me off then re-phrased the question requiring a shorter answer. I offered up the fact that I felt better after changing my diet to foods that don't upset the gallbladder, minus the fatigue, fever and headache. I at least feel a little more human. He stated he thinks it's, Cannabinoid hyperemesis. My symptoms are worse then that doc. Shame on you.
