I had to have a four level cervical fusion (ACDF). Dr. Fowler explained the situation and procedure thoroughly and proceeded with a 10 hour surgery with excellent results. I'm thankful to have found this neurosurgeon.

This past week Dr. Fowler and his did a 5hr surgery to remove an intradural tumor. He, his team, and surgical team at Mission Hospital did an outstanding job of discussing the the procedure, the risks, the follow up and the prognosis. Dr. Fowler did an excellent job surgically, and handled a complication with outstanding professionalism (called in another Neurosurgeon for a second opinion then called my wife, explained the situation, agreement on the action).

This Dr. and the team at Mission Hospital in Asheville NC saved my life two years ago. He conducted surgery for a ruptured aneurysm. I am blessed to have had his services that day.

5 weeks for an appointment, 2 hours wait time for at least 3 out of 6 visits. Confusing discussion over how to proceed. An abrupt cancellation of an appointment following my 3rd MRI which was to determine whether to have surgery. I was advised to have surgery several times by his assistant and would expect to schedule a time with him to proceed time after time. Imagine my frustration when I last saw him and spent my time being scolded for missing an appointment which I did not miss. I canceled.
