Review of Dr. Bowman

-Richmond, VA |

Dr. Bowman herself is a very average doctor. She is patient and kind but is very forgetful- she forgets to call in prescription, forgets why I am at her office for a follow up just a few days after the original appointment, forgets to check my chart to review my test results.... What really brings Dr Bowman's rating down, however, is her inept staff. It takes multiple repeated calls for several days to get someone to pick up the phone. I gave never received a return phone call despite messages

Review of Dr. Morales

- in Portsmouth, VA |

She delivered my baby 11/26/16 because my dr was out. And she tried to kill me instead of letting my placenta detach on its own or doing a d&c she ripped it out in shreds sending me into shock and I lost a lot of blood

Review of Dr. Lucas

- in Moyock NC |

Dr. Lucas is an amazing doctor!! He is gentle, kind, respectful, understanding and knowledgeable. He has taken his personal time on several instances to call me and answer questions and concerns I have had about treatments, medications and procedures. I needed a procedure done urgently and he fit me into his surgical schedule within days. It was a success and I had almost no pain. Again, he called me at home to check on me himself. I will recommend him to my own family and friends. He's an angel

Review of Dr. Bowman

- in Richmond |

Dr. Bowman seems very nice and knowledgable, however I have no confidence in the reception staff in her office. The main receptionist never smiles and never knows the answer to any questions I have about payment, insurance, etc. This is the first contact in the office! That being said, Cindy is great, the ultrasound lady is phenomenal, and the lady doing labs is great as well. I would recommend this office for routine care like birth control, but not if you are expecting.

Review of Dr. Bowman

- in Richmond, VA |

I never got to meet Dr Bowman. I had a 9:00am appt. I sat in her waiting room for 2 hrs. I arrived at 8:45, I waited 30 minutes before being spoken to. There were 4 office staff that would glance at me once in a while but no mention of her running behind. Finally I inquired as to why I hadn't been seen or if I was up next. Shrugs from the front office staff. In summation, I was never seen & with Dr Bowman having only average reviews online, I decided she wasn't a good fit for me & left.

Review of Dr. Bowman

- in Louisa, VA |

Dr. Bowman and team have been wonderful to work with throughout my pregnancy and delivery. They did everything to make sure that my baby and I were both healthy throughout the pregnancy and that I had the safest delivery possible to keep me and baby safe. All of the staff are wonderful to work with, caring, and helpful.

Review of Dr. Bowman

-Richmond, VA |

My first 2 appointments with Dr. Bowman were fine. She was very nice and understanding.... HOWEVER, I have been trying to contact her for the last THREE days.... I initially called on Wednesday evening and was connected to the after hours call service. I left a message for the doctor, stating I had an emergency and no one called me back. ALL DAY Thursday, I tried to contact the office during regular business hours. No one ever answer for ANY of the options available(appointments, nurse, recept

Review of Dr. Bowman

-Richmond, VA |

It has been my experience with OBGYN doctors that the personality has a lot to do with the way a patient responds or feels comfortable. I went through a number of other doctors feeling frustrated before Dr. Bowman. She is kind, listens, and is not pushy with her opinions. That is something that makes me feel at ease. While I have only been a patient for about 9 months, I am happy with her as my doctor. I prefer the one-on-one relationship to the group practices that I've dealt with in the past.

Review of Dr. Bowman

-Glen Allen, VA |

As a former hospital system VP of women's services, I recommended Dr. Bowman to my son and his wife for pregnancy. Dr. Bowman's style is very personable and flexible, and she beautifully balances sometimes conflicting influences and recommendations with the woman’s personal needs. There was an unusual, significant medical complication she handled beautifully, and the birth could not have been more personal. She has a nice, calm style that is particularly valuable when tensions are high.

Review of Dr. Bowman

- in Richmond, VA |

Worse bedside manner I have ever seen in my life. Would not recommend her to my worse enemy. Rude, non apologetic and an hour late. Probably paid to get into Richmond magazine Best Docs. Don't be fooled! A total joke!!!!
