TESTIMONIALS

Five Stars

★★★★★
5 5 1
Appointments are a little tricky but I attribute this to the volume of patients he needs to fit into his schedule. Sometimes there is a wait in his office which cannot be helped due to seriousness of patient's needs. We all understand this and know if it were ourselves we would want this extra time given us. His staff is extremely pleasant. Holly does her very best in accommodating our appointments. Dr. Lowell (who this is all about) is a perfectionist and is gifted with some sort of 'inner sense' in recognizing problems which may take others several tests, scans, etc. t o find. His friendliness and humor are appreciated which makes a heavy heart so much lighter. He is an excellent example for what healing is all about. Dr. Lowell is also very easy to recognize by oneof two distinctions. He either wears long red socks or none at all! Check it out. Awesome!
