Dr. Lowery was very professional and answered all my questions. He referred me to his colleague Dr. Gupta for a consult on surgery. Dr. Gupta was also kind, compassionate and very helpful. The X-ray technician is outstanding! Very sweet andcompassionate. The aids or nurses that support the doctors were also wonderful. BUT when it came the office staff in the reception are and the office manager - they were absolutely awful. I had prepared and look over my information the last time I was in the office and they either did not update things or lost my paperwork and tried to force me to do it all again this time. I said that nothing had changed and that I would be happy to sign any documents stating so, but I was not going to redo everything. The person who was giving me the papers would not show me where to sign I asked her 5 times and she ignored my request, then handed me off to another person and stormed off. The next person also refused to do as I requested after I asked her two times to show me where to sign. She also ignored me and went to the manager who spoke to me as if I was a little child and threatened to cancel my appointment if I did not do as she told me, to which I stated if she did so, then I would need to speak to the doctor. Her response was "Oh, yeah, YOU Will talk to the Doctor!" In private meeting I made her aware of the other reviews given about her office staff and her response was, "I don't give credence to things like that from people like you." Now I understand why the other staff act the way they do. If the manager is unprofessional, then her staff will be, too. I would not recommend this office to anyone even though the doctors are wonderful. I am not the only one who has complained about the office staff. There are several bad reviews online.

I saw Dr. Lowery for a consult for options on a worsening knee condition. He laid out options from status quo to total knee replacement in a professional manner and answered my many questions. He made me feel comfortable that Icould trust him if the final decision comes to surgery.

I really like Dr Lowery but he has so many patients now I just don't feel he can spend the time with each one he'd like to and I ended up feeling kind of rushed in my visit. He is very good though.

Due to a string of bad luck, I've now been a patient of Dr. Lowery for two and a half years. His approach with three injuries varied but we're perfectly correct. He pushed physical therapy rather than surgery on a brokenthumb. Tried injections and PT, before suggesting (then performing) surgery for tennis elbow. And when I aggravated a shoulder injury, I knew I'd go to Dr. Lowery. He offered injection quickly for pain and MRI done sooner than later showed the issue needed surgery. I'll have survey next week and am confident I'll have little scaring and full function-just like my previous experience with him. I highly recommend him.

What I like most about Dr. Lowery is his honesty and integrity. If he is not sure he states that he is not sure and what are the next steps for pin pointing the issue. He always takes the time toexplain the complex doctor terms using language that us non-doctors can understand.

Doctor acted rushed and not overly kid friendly as he acted bored and somewhat moody. I am someone who believes smiles go a long way, especially in the professional world and we did not see one. The rest of the staff was quite pleasant and helpful however.

Dr. Lowery is absolutely AMAZING. Easily the best and smartest doctor we have ever encountered for us, our kids, and my Mom. He is absolutely thorough, incredibly detailed, very accurate, and offers detailed options for treatment along withthe tradeoffs with each option - as well as his recommended approach. He is hands down the best doctor on the PLANET!

He is a very friendly doctor. I went in for my daughter and he did really well with her. He took the time to explain her condition, what all our options were and what would be the best place to starttreatment and why. I'm very pleased with this consultation. Highly recommend. Staff are really nice and friendly.. Although the front lady needs to smile a little more.
