  • “I was impressed with his punctuality. Dr. Dowdle was straightforward, transparent, and compassionate. He did not sugarcoat anything. He provided me with options for pain. If that doesn't work, then surgery is needed.”

  • “Knowledgeable, kind, and friendly. Dr. Bear explained very clearly the issue with my shoulder. He then laid out four options. Three did not include surgery, even though my shoulder cannot be just repaired. Thank you, Dr. Bear.”
