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.

compassionate and crackerjack best doctor

Anybody who is fortunate enough to be treated by Dr. Dow in my opinion has to see him as the jewel in their crown and treasure such a compassionate and brilliant human being and brilliant doctor.Lois Titherington Yes, sometimes the wait is long because he is treating the most serious and needy patients first.His office is like Grand Central station!

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.

brilliant and compassionate

RARE COMBINATION OF A DOCTOR WHO REALLY CARES AND LISTENS. WAIT TIME COULD VARY BECAUSE HE HAS EMERGENCIES AND SOME VERY ILL PATIENTS. HOWEVER UNLIKE MANY IN THE MEDICAL FIELD, HIS KNOWLEDGE IS SO APPARENT NOT ONLY IN CARDIOLOGY BUT IN ALL FIELDS OF MEDICINE.HE IS A VERY SPECIAL INDIVIDUAL!
