Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have been a longtime patient with Dr. Nowlin. My care has involved multiple surgeries and on-going care. He is amazing. He is at the top of his field, and well respected among peers. He has a conservative approach, and doesn't rush to surgery unless it is necessary. He explains conditions and treatments thoroughly, and will take all the time needed with family member, as well. He no longer does surgery himself, but during my time as his patient he has been a surgical wizard. When I needed to go elsewhere for surgery, he helped me select the doctors and facility. The man knows everything. I may be biased because he literally saved my life, but I cannot recommend him highly enough.

He's old school. Actually takes time with his patients and cares about getting things better. he doesnt use surgery as the answer to everything. He talk with you about different ways to work on things and help you pick the one that works best for you.
