After over 50 surgeries since "84", I have been treated by the best MD'S in Chicago. I found Dr. Bowers' care to to be Exceptional!! I've only been to my 1st appt. However, I found her office to be very professional & thorough. I've never been to an opthamologist before. I felt 100% satisfied. I had a surgeon for 35 yrs( 1 of 10 best in nation), Dr Bowers & staff made me feel that same level of care, that I had. I would recommend her to anyone, w/out a 2nd thought! She is one of the BEST!!
