“In practicing as a fellowship-trained sports medicine surgeon, I’ve devoted myself to helping restore form and function after injury for athletes and active people from all walks of life. My approach to treatment is patient-centered and compassionate care with shared decision-making between patient and surgeon while providing patients with the most recent and leading-edge evidence-based medicine currently available.

I enjoy relationship-building with my patients and providing them with both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options to return them to the activities they love and enjoy. I also enjoy the responsibility of being a physician both inside and outside of the hospital and helping those in that capacity wherever and whenever I can.”

Patient Testimonials

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.

Excellent communication and interest in my issues. Dr. Dowdle is a very good physician.

I had a great interaction with the staff and Dr. Dowdle.

Dr. Dowdle was remarkable. Jim, in imaging, and the nurse, Mary, were also fantastic. The front desk was excellent as well. Thank you.

My problem was thoroughly explained, options presented, and great support throughout the decision process—excellent conversation with Dr. Dowdle.
