SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Dr. Lowe was wonderful. Kind, patient, caring - absolutely the best!

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Medication was not ordered had to email GP to get meds - Provider seemed to have diagnosis prior to seeing me -

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Dr. Lowe is an excellent physician and was complete in his explanations.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

dr Henry Lowe was amazing. 2 follow up calls to check on me. I was so impressed. he was worth the wait.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Thank you for your excellent professional and loving cares

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Great listener, answered all my questions! Dr. Lowe was very knowledgeable & made me feel better right away just by listening to my concerns.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Dr. Lowe is (and has been in general)an extremely fine general care doctor. He may be the best I've ever had.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

I have complete faith in any Stanford doctor over other physicians but Dr. Lowe walking in with an immediate diagnosis before even checking me himself (though the nurse did a great job and I'm sure he based this on nurses assessment) was not appreciated, even if he is correct. He was also rushed.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Dr. Lowe was very professional. He came in and apologized for the delay and attended me right away. He listened to my illness issue and assisted me with the questions I had. I was late to pick my daughters, Dr. Lowe put in the request for my test and told me that I can come in tomorrow and the orders will be ready for lab anytime. I was relaxed and felt better.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

got personal history wrong; overheard his comments about me with nursing Assistant before he came in to see me.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

To all the providers that I've seen Thank You!

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

He was not patient to try to listen to what I tried to say, looked at the watch then changed the subject. I followed up with him after my emergency visit,I have compression fracture spine, he sent me home with the pain medication that didn't help control my pain at all.
