Dr.Fowler was very complimentary of my latest A1C before we began the exam. He made us feel like we were the most important patient we would see that day and left us feeling like he had all the time in the world for our questions and concerns. I have recommended Dr. Fowler to a number of people and will happily continue to do so in the future.
