This was my first appointment with Dr. Dowdle. I wanted a second opinion regarding surgery for a trigger finger issue. I did not have a clear expectation that I would ultimately choose him over the doctor I had previously seen. However,after my appointment with Dr. Dowdle, I did not hesitate to schedule my surgery with him and feel very confident in him. He took the time to explain exactly what my medical issue was and what the surgery would entail. He was patient, professional and friendly. I feel fortunate to have seen him on the recommendation of a friend who had had prior carpal tunnel surgery with him.
