The following are reviews from patients of Dr. McDowell.
“Dr. McDowell is very professional and courteous. He does not make you feel rushed by breezing in and out. The doctor listens to you and lets you know your options. He allows you to decide and answers any questions he has. He makes you feel like your feeling and concerns matter to him. I like his input and makes you feel like you matter. I appreciate this above all.”

“Very well pleased before/hospital and after surgery visits. Surgery was a great success.”
– Vanda F.
“I had a badly broken wrist that Dr. McDowell repaired for me. I was 59 at the time. I had a plate and seven screws put in my wrist and thumb area, and I have been pleased with my recovery, and approx 6-inch incision/scar has healed very well. Because of my satisfaction, I referred my husband to Dr. McDowell for his rotator cuff repair. Surgery went very well although we are still only five weeks post surgery and my husband has a long six-month physical therapy program to get him to full use again of his arm/shoulder. Would recommend Dr. McDowell not only for his surgery experience but his personality and bedside manner makes for an enjoyable experience.”

“I have only praise for Dr. McDowell and his staff. They all do a super job of caring for me . I’ve been a patient for over ten years. His nurse Michelle is very caring and thoughtful ( the best). I've always had complete confidence in Dr. Mcdowell. I highly recommend him.”

“A considerate and relatable physician. With his encouragement, the rehab phase went better than planned, and I was back on the golf course within four weeks of a quadriceps tendon repair.”

“I had problems with my left shoulder for months and went to my primary care doctor, and he had no idea what the problem was. So my brother suggested Dr. McDowell. I saw him, and he had me do simple movements and then asked me if I ever had of frozen shoulder? That's what I had. I suffered for months until I found Dr. McDowell. He suggested physical therapy, and it helped some. I did that for several months and had more movement, but it still wasn't 100 percent. So I would see Dr. McDowell, and he said I wouldn't get any better, so he suggested surgery. I had surgery, and I could tell the difference in a week. Now I can raise my shoulder and put my hand behind my back without any problems. I liked Dr. McDowell because he didn't rush into surgery it was the last option. I would highly recommend him to anyone with orthopedic issues. He was caring and had the best bedside manners!”
