  • Gynecologic Oncology

    Gynecologic oncologists specialize in cancers that occur in the female reproductive system. This includes ovarian cancer, cervical cancer and endometrial cancer, as well as the less commonly talked about female reproductive cancers like vulvar cancer, vaginal cancer and fallopian tube cancer.
    In addition to diagnosing the stage of your cancer and recommending treatment options, they’ll provide care throughout your treatment and help you manage your symptoms. They’ll often work closely with a pathologist and a radiologist to properly diagnose you and determine if your cancer is shrinking or spreading throughout treatment. They’re even trained to administer chemotherapy and to perform surgery to remove cancer when necessary.

A Fine Surgeon

I disagree with an earlier post about bedside manner. Just because Dr. Dowdy does not behave like a circus clown/politician/used-car salesman does not mean that he has no bedside manner. When my life was rocked by a devastating diagnosis, I appreciated Dr. Dowdy's composure and concern. He also has a cool wife, a nice family, and a cerebral interest in literature. He's a well-rounded individual who is more than capable of saving lives.

Surgery completed on daughter

Dr. Dowdy has NO bedside manner and doesn't know how to talk with his patients. He has no compassion. Our daughter was diagnosed with a rare cancer and he performed the surgery as we were told he was the expert. He is excellent with a knife but from there forward, he's worthless. Most of the battle is recovery and he basically indicated to her that she has one foot in the grave. She's 24 years old and has life ahead of her. After he talked with her, that is when he actually graced us with his presence, she didn't want to live. He had nothing positive to say about what her future held. I confronted him about his bedside manner later via a phone call and he indicated that "I won't lie to my patients". I stated, you don't need to lie, you need to utilize a different selection of words that don't leave your patients wanting to give up and die. I wouldn't recommend Dr. Sean Dowdy. There are other doctors that are better, less egotistical and definitely more compassionate. We've since found that doctor and our daughter is living life again with positive strides.
