Lacks Bedside Manner

I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. He's arrogant, can't take the time to talk to family and when I had some concerns about one leg being longer than the other his response was "Get a shoe lift" I've had hip pain for four years in spite of physical therapy and strengthening classes. I suspect upcoming knee problems and thinking that Dr. Dowd was the only one at Jordan Young who treats knees, I have been putting off calling for an appointment, but I have found that another doctor there treats knees, so that's who I'll be calling.

Excellent results after knee replacements

Dr. Dowd has, at different times, replaced both of my knees. In each case recovery and rehab time were less than expcted, pain was minimal, and I've ad little or no difficulty with either knee since. Both times I met with Dr. Dowd for examination and diagnosis and immediately before and after the surgeries. Follow-up office meetings have been conduced by his PA, who seems very capable. I have great confidence in Dr. Dowd's surgical skills.

EXCELLENT!

In 2011, I had an anterior hip replacement from Dr. Dowd. He was friendly and caring, as was his PA. After years of being in pain, I now have my life back. Thank you so much, Dr. Dowd! I am not sure why your reviews are not all 5 star!

Hip Bursitis Alleviation

Dr. Dowd offered me physical therapy for my hip bursitis, rather than do a repeat injection. He said he thought that might fix the problem "for good" -- and it DID. The stretching and exercises not only helped the affected hip, they helped a two-year-old knee replacement that was still painful. The therapist's evaluation noted the need for a heel lift which has also helped the pain and reduced my limping. I'm a fan.
