I am extremely pleased with my initial, established visit with Dr. Towers. She is a very empathetic, and caring physician. She is very knowledgeable and proactive in her thinking to help me accomplish good health in my golden years. I have never had a physician at UPMC who actually listened to my concerns about my health... As a seasoned nurse I have always treated my patient like I would be like to be treated. Dr. Tower practices what I have been looking for in a physician... One that cares and does Not rush to get you out of the office. I really appreciated the time she spent with me which was recorded as 75 minutes. I feel it is so important to take a thorough history from a patient so you can better accomplish a healthier, compliance patient. Dr. Tower has accomplished this feat. Thank you Dr. Towers... An excellent, knowledgeable, caring physician is what Dr. Towers exhibited..
