Unfortunately, Dr. Dowling missed my husbands warning signs over a period of months, diagnosing him with GERD and prescribing pain killers and antacid's despite repeated phone calls and visits by my husband, who was worsening. On one such visit months into this issue, my husband was seen by Dr. Dowling's covering physician who ordered an ultra sound. We got no results or feedback from Dr. Dowling, so assumed it came back normal...that was in May. We finally called a GI specialist directly. Dr. Richard Curtis spoke to my husband, listened to his symptoms, and squeezed him in for an endoscopy the next morning. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer and died 10 months later. When I reviewed his medical records from Dr. Dowling, the ultrasound showed questionable marks in the liver and recommended further testing to clarify. Sadly, Dr. Dowling did not so so. I can only imagine what might be different had he listened to my 35 year old, previously healthy husband's repeated requests for assistance. Rather, six crucial months passed with an aggressive cancer spreading unbeknownst to us. I am thankful for the physician covering for Dr. Dowling that one day, Rosemary Corderi, and for Dr. Richard Curtis for recognizing immediately what was likely happening, and addressing it.

You will never find a more competent doctor than Dr. Dowling. Easy to talk to, shows diagrams to help you understand and is not afraid to spend with you. When you an appointment you may need to wait, but it is worth the wait because you realize he will spend time with you as well. I would travel for hours to see Dr. Dowling. The office staff is somewhat cold, disconnected to patients and truly seems uncaring. Fix you office workers and you will be perfect!!!! Dr. Dowling thank you for being such a great doctor.

Very nice but waited for a long time, doctor was knowledgeable but just wanted to be treated and go home. Staff could have been nicer, seemed frazzled..
