Specialties

Dr. Douglas L Blowey has the following 3 specialties

  • Pediatric Nephrology
  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

GREAT DOCTOR!

Dr Blowey cares about his patients. He takes time to listen fully before making a diagnosis. Follow up with his nurse is reliable even when an issue with my daughter has occurred. It is very hard to get an appointment with Doctor Blowey but so worth it! Plus the most important thing is my daughter really likes Blowey. Once due to an insurance issue we had to see another doctor and she begged me to find a way to go back to blowey. He is the best!
