I was able to have my blood drawn during this visit, so I didn't have to go to Salmon Creek with separate appointment. This was very helpful. Thanks.

As a retired RN I am surprised that on both of my last annual wellness visits a physical assessment like lungs, heart, etc were not done only a verbal exam was done. This is basic stuff and the best practice. What if my heart rate was irregular for example??

The office help, nurses, and Dr. Lowder was prompt and professional. Yes, I have referred him to my son and grandson as their Primary care doctor. He was concerned, professional, and knowledgeable about my medical conditions.

Dr. Lowder is amazing! It is hard to get an appointment with him but worth waiting for. He knows me and my health history for over 20 years. Haven't found anyone more capable and with a understanding way to help make you feel better and to easy my anxiety.

Your phone system is very bad.You need to make significant changes in both phone answering and phone followup., Of all the shortcomings of your system the phone answering and followup is by far the worse I have ever experienced

The MA made a judgement Al remark based on her opinion not medical information. This was unprofessional and it took me by surprise. I didn't respond.

Nurse was rather rude and somewhat vague regarding blood pressure.

  Sep 11, 2023
I was being worked in and was able to get in before my actual time. I did not wait in the room long. I was listened to and the appropriate attention was given. My history is complicated and I love that Dr. Lowder knows my history and my family history. I woudn't go anywhere else.

  Sep 6, 2023
The staff and Dr. Lowder are outstanding!

  Sep 6, 2023
Front desk tied up on phones, which delayed check in. I quite certain the MA did my blood pressure wrong. My reading was very low, which is unusual for me, and the cuff was falling down my arm. She even agreed it seemed low but did not re-take. Also, she couldn't pronounce any of my meds, some of which are pretty common.

  Sep 5, 2023
Everything during my time in the clinic was perfect. I left feeling well informed and cared for.

  Aug 16, 2023
I so appreciate Dr. Lowder. He listens to my medical concerns and cares about my health.

  Aug 9, 2023
Very difficult to get into legacy health online services. Too many verification, code Etcwas needed to get into my my E chart lab report. So I finally gave up to try more. Is there any easier way to be able to get into E charts for me to review the results? At my old age, it's very difficult to do everything I am asked to even get to see my lab results or to communicate with my health care professionals!

  Aug 1, 2023
It doesn't matter if I recommend or not if you are not taking new patients and it literally takes months to get an appointment.

  Jul 20, 2023
Excellent as always

  Jul 18, 2023
Dr. Lowder and his team are always respectful, attentive, courteous, timely, caring, informative, and efficient. Keep up the great work!

  Jul 12, 2023
Dr. Lowder is friendly, professional, courteous and easy to talk to. I go ahead and wait months to see him because he truly makes you feel listened to and considered. I feel he gives great care and feel very comfortable with having him for a doctor.
