Dr. Lowder is the best primary physician my wife and I have ever had. After moving from [location removed] we gladly travel across town so only because of Dr. Lowder.

Nurse listened to my concerns with my having some chest pain and did a EKG before the dr came. So he was ready to talk about my most pressing problem which was not why I made the appointment

What made my visit exceptional was the time Dr. Lowder spent with me. I feel this is vital to any appointment as only good care decisions can't be properly made in a short time frame set by most health care providers these days. Being under a time restricted appointment has been one of the many reasons I have avoided seeing a doctor.

This was an urgent visit due to a rotational injury to my ankle and knee in a fall. During the exam and x-ray the staff was very kind and supportive throughout the process. Dr. Lowder is a patient and attentive physician.

I was shocked that in the visit summary a complete assessment was documented. Things like my lungs were clear, ears okay, heart rate regular yet none of these things were done. In fact Dr Lowder did no physical assessment of me.

I am very pleased to have Dr. Lowder as my new Dr., this being my first experience with Legacy. My husband was seen by Dr. Lowder yesterday for first time. He was in severe back pain, and Dr. was very compassionate and efficient in getting us help. Upon this visit, I decided I wanted him to be my new Dr too. We feel blessed to have it work out this way, and relieved to have landed in the care of a good Dr who listens and cares.

Dr. Lowder always pays attention and makes me feel like he's giving me credit for my own feelings about any physical/emotional problem/situation. He has always been very good this way. That is saying a LOT for a doctor, in my experience.

This was my first visit, to establish care. One of my main concerns to address was difficulty breathing. I had just had a Covid test (negative) 5 days prior to my visit. I was astounded that there was NO physical exam. Dr. Lowder didn't even listen to my lungs. This is patient care 101. I will be finding a new provider. He's very nice, but I didn't leave my appointment feeling confident about my future care.

Friendly and professional receptionists and doctor - thank you. 2 other comments: 1. Prebrief for Regular Check-up stated that if i discuss any unusual health issues, I may receive extra charges. This effected almost the first question the doctor had for me, "any health issues you want to discuss", the answer was "no, I was told I could be charged more for doing so". I have several issues I want the doctor to be aware of, but nothing acute, so said nothing. Is this the effect you wanted by that disclosure? 2. Second time I have used the separate but associated lab. I can't say it was a seamless experience. Another check-in, another wait albeit short. Another waiver to sign. Couldn't get back to the main office without walking outside then back-in to ask if I was complete. And finally, second time in this office lab - both times felt rushed by staff demeanor. The first time a strong odor of smoking was present - I suspect from one of the office staff. Other than that, good experience overall. I like the myhealth portal and ease of connecting other health records and follow-up by staff in routing paperwork.
