      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Nowlin's Care Philosophy

      I could use some fancy words here but the take home point is THE PATIENT COMES FIRST. I have been taking care of people's colon & rectal problems for 26 years. I believe you treat people with respect, take them seriously and provide them with the facts. I have found that many colon & rectal problems can be treated medically and don't require surgery. Should surgery be necessary we will talk about options and help you make an informed decision. I am not currently performing hospital procedures.
