Specialties

Dr. Christopher P Dowd has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Three Stars

He is a nice guy. His diagnostic skills are average and his medical knowledge is average. If you want your cholesterol checked he will fine tune that to the nth degree. However if you have a real internal medicine illness he just does not have the experience managing it as he is a concierge physician and has too few patients to obtain the experience needed to be one of the best physicians. I come to a physician to find out what is wrong with me and get me the best advice that I need. You just cannot get that from a physician with too few patients in the practice.

Phenomenal Physician

The entire Cornerstone staff goes above and beyond every single time - no matter my issues. Dr. Dowd is the most attentive, respectful, and dedicated doctor I have ever seen. He is never too busy for me and I can always expect a phone call back from him or his staff the same day. I love being a patient.

in the past several years, we have been to doctors and hospitals in many states and in range from Johns Hopkins to Obici...Dr Dowd is thorough, reads your history before he sees you, spends plenty of time with you, and seems to genuinely care. while I was skeptical of the concienge concept, after having a close relative in both a hospital and nursing home, I would pay twice as much to insure the doc treating my family not only knows our name but reads reports, will order followup testing, follows our case, and pays attention.. it is a system that works. highly recommend!!!!

Physician Excellence!!

Without question, Chris Dowd is one of the sharpest and brighest doctors in this area and Hampton Roads is blessed to have a physician of his caliber and competence. He is not only my doctor but he has also become a genuine friend who cares about my total health scenario and who I totally trust. His staff is extremely competent, caring, compassionate, and this whole group is the "total package" in individual health care!!!!
