Dr. Fowler is the most knowledgeable and caring provider I have ever had.
Patient | December 12, 2017

Dr. Fowler is unique in his ability to make you feel like you are the MIP, "most important patient". Even though I know there are patients with much greater needs than mine, once he gets in the room, he is totally focused directly on you, the person in front of him. He is certainly worth the wait to see him, (limited appts due to the fact that he is teaching more than seeing patients these days).
