I always enjoy seeing Dr Lowder, he's a very nice and polite man and a pleasure to talk with. Even when I'm not feeling my best! Really couldn't ask for a better Doctor nor have I ever had a better doctor either! I would hate to ever need to switch doctors on a permanent basis! With that being said though, any doctor I have had any contact with at Legacy has always been the very best
