Thomas R Dowd, MD

Obstetrics and Gynecology
Dr. Thomas Dowd, is a board-certified OB/GYN at Healthcare for Women Medical Group with offices in Independence and Blue Springs, Mo. and is affiliated with Centerpoint Medical Center.

I have been in women’s healthcare for more than 20 years, providing comprehensive care to teenagers through seniors. Throughout my career, I have also been privileged to serve in several leadership positions for the hospital. My practice is focused on offering comprehensive women’s healthcare including: contraception, tubal ligation, infertility, pelvic pain and heavy/painful periods. In addition, I have specialized experience in minimally invasive, laparoscopic and robotic GYN surgery.

It is my strong belief that promoting preventive healthcare should come first, which I try to model for my patients by living a healthy, active lifestyle. Outside of medicine, I am an avid woodworker, enjoy competing in 5K mud runs and love learning new things. I share my life with three incredible sons, a loving daughter-in-law and a super cute grandson!

When I started with the practice in 1996, Dr Morris gave me excellent advice, "Treat each patient as though they were your mother, sister, wife, or child". I do my best to embody the spirit of that care every day. I have honest conversations with my patients and I listen to their concerns. My patients trust me and I do not take that trust for granted. I provide facts, advice, options and this then allows each patient to make their own decision on what is best for them.
