One of the best medical experienceds I have ever had . This Harvard trained surgeon with 25 years of experience spent an hour explaining to my mother her heart condition, did her stent procedure himself, and saw her in the hospital every day. He then saw us in his private office right in the hospital.

Dr. Dow as a medical professional is very good at what he does. His office staff, or lack there of, is a different story. He has only 1 Office Manager/Secretary and she is not very efficient, calls back to patients do not get done, her lack of multi-tasking is comical at best. When waiting in the office to see the Dr. there will be a room full of patients and all she will do is complain out loud about everthing little thing. She has even yelled at the Dr. on many occassions. She is not very polite and seems to be very unhappy. Not the kind of impression I would want for my patients.
