Great Experience..And Good to be back under Carolina Digestive Health's Care w/ Dr. Fred Fowler.


Andrew L.

I was a Previous Patient W/ Carolina Digestive being seen by Dr. Fred Fowler.I moved to Asheville NC. Upon returning to the Concord Area I was Hospitalized @ Atrium Northeast due to a GI Bleed and Low Hemoglobin Count of 3.7 level. I was placed back under care if Dr.Fred Fowler and Carolina Digestive and Colonoscopy was done by Dr. Fowler. The Carolina Digestive Team and Dr. Fowler were Great. They went to Work immediately like I had not left practice. Problem was found and Blood Transfusion was admitted and Done, and All is back to Normal now, minus a Little Inflammation in Colon due to Crohn's Disease. Thank You To Carolina Digestive Health and Dr. Fowler and The Team there..It's Great to be back in Your Care!
