Dr. John Fowler is excellent. I brought my son to him last years when he broke his arm so 8 wanted the same quality of care for my daughter.

August 31, 2018

The Fellow for Dr Fowler explained things well to me, and Dr Fowler also did. I was happy with the care I received and the quick option for a remedy. They were both professional, relatable, and helpful.
