Dr. Lowers is ok for colds and minor illness, however it seems he is always off or going home. Cannot be depended upon for good follow up.

I like Dr. Lowers, but his nurses are problematic. I woke up with a case of shingles--a painful rash all over one side of my face and in my eye. I phoned to see if he could prescribe antivirals, which apparently reduce the length and severity of shingles. The first time I called, I got shunted to an answering system that wasn't working properly. When I called back, I was finally able to get connected to one of his nurses, who kept interrupting me in order to repeat that I'd have to drive in. Did I mention this is IN MY EYE? I can't drive in. I'm 40 minutes away. She sounded miffed that I'd bother her with such an outrageous request: a prescription for medicine because I'm sick and could possibly be blinded if this gets severe. Did she think I was seeking painkillers? If she had looked at my chart, she would have seen that I can't tolerate painkillers. Not ibuprofen, much less anything stronger. I was calling for one of the three antivirals they recommend for shingles. She treated me like an annoyance rather than a person. Shameful. I hope I don't lose vision in this eye.
