It is not a Federal mandate to wear masks. It should be an option for individuals to wear or not when visiting. Stop the mandate!

I consider Dr. Lowder to be very knowledgeable & friendly. My concerns are his. He's a good listener & takes action when needed. My only concern is, other people must feel the same way because it's hard to get an appt. with him.

Dr. Lowder was knowledgeable, attentive, and had good humor, but was very serious about the current condition that brought me into his care. He identified what may be an underlining condition, e.g. A-fib, and recommend I follow up with a Heart doctor. Overall very good office visit.

Dr Lowder is an exceptional doctor. He always provides the best care I can get. His MA Robin was on her toes and payed attention to simple concerns I mentioned to her. She acted on my concerns and provided care beyond my expectations. Should I enjoy being seen at that facility this much? I can't help that I do. It's a thing others can only hope for!!!

I have been under the care of a general surgeon for the past six months. That said, Dr. Lowder has been my PCP for a number of years. He listens to me and I believe he respects me and knows me well. I have chronic pain and he understands my attitude concerning medication for pain. I appreciate his medical advice and believe him to be a genuine man of medicine. This visit was a review of medication and included a request for fasting labs.
