Rude man.

What an awful man. I have never had a healthcare provider be so openly rude to me. Appeared very narcissistic and downright rude. Appearance isn't everything, but it does play an important role in forming opinions and this man's scrubs appeared and smelt as though they had been worn for a week straight. Save yourself time and see any other doctor in that office. The only upside was the nice ladies in the office.

Rude!

After being asked to make sure I was at the appointment 15 minutes early (I was), I was left to wait, along with so many people in the waiting room there were no seats left, for 2 hours! I finally asked (1 1/2 hours in) what the hold up was only to be told, "They are surgeons"! At 4:55 I was called back. Dr. Towler came in and cut me off at every question I tried to ask, then just left the room to put an order in - never saw him again, nurse appeared to show me to the front. I immediately called my personal physician to get another referral - not going to be treated like I'm inferior!

AMAZING.

This Dr was called in for a consult from an ER doctor. My mom was having gall bladder pain. He came to the hospital in no time flat and stayed with her, pushing for them to do tests that they were reluctant to do. His persistence diagnosed a severely infected gallbladder that would have led to sepsis and some serious problems. Kudos to this guy, and I will never forget what priority he made my mom when other doctors were willing to dose her up with pain meds and take a "wait and see" approach. He did her surgery, which was complicated due to the advanced amount of inflammation, pus, and swelling. He did an AMAZING job. I feel like he saved her life. If this is your surgeon, you are in amazing hands.
