Patient Comments (2)
in St. Albans, Vt. |
Extremely short time to get an appointment. Staff is very friendly & helpful. Dr. Dowhan is the best! Explained everything that was going to happen with my exam, surgery & follow up. He asked if I had any questions several times, so if I had thought of something after the initial conversation had taken place. I found him very calming & experienced. Also, he is very easy on the eyes (even after the surgery).
