Dr Jones spent adequate time with me explaining my surgery options. He answered my questions and I’m very comfortable with the procedure he will do on my shoulder .

Review for Dr. Bowser

I have been a patient of Dr. Jepson since 2010. He is very nice, courteous, and personable. He really takes his time in explaining things to you no matter if it’s your first visit or 11 years later. He makes sure to answer any and all questions. He does not rush in or out of the room.
