James McDowell

"I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Dr. McDowell. I first met him at a LapBand seminar that I attended in January 2007 and immediately liked him. He was very approachable and easy to talk to. I waited until January 2008 before making the decision to go ahead with the surgery. It had been a year since I saw Dr. McDowell and I was slightly nervous that perhaps I should have looked into another surgeon -- that is until he came into the room and I was able to talk to him. I instantly remembered why I liked him so much and I was completely at ease. He has such a great bedside manner. He's very caring and he is extremely thorough, especially when it comes to answering your questions. I had my surgery in February and there were no complications at all. Everything went very smoothly and I knew I was in good hands. I definitely feel I made the right choice by choosing Dr. McDowell. He's always very positive and encouraging when I see him during my monthly fills as well. The only thing I wish is that he saw patients more than one day a week. He currently is only at the Metabolic Surgery Center on Fridays so if Friday is a bad day for you, that could be a problem. Otherwise, you can't go wrong by choosing Dr. McDowell. I am very happy with my decision and have no regrets whatsoever. He's great!"
