Dr. Dowell has the sweetest bedside manner. She always makes me feel like I'm her only patient & she speaks softly & kindly.

It's very hard to get them to return messages and answer questions very phone and email. I've waited almost a week for medical advice that I sent through email on MyVanderbiltHealth.
