r. McDowell is the best doctor out of top 3) I Have had in my 65 years of life. He explains all medical issues in a way that one understands, yet helps makes me feel death is not tomorrow as some MD's make one feel. Look forward to my visits as I feel better just chatting with him. Have recommended him to many. My son is going to him soon. He is the #1 MD IMHO!
