I was very lucky to get to know Dr. Bruce Bowers one year ago in mid 2019 and to be treated by him since then from my heart problems. He is immensely gifted, capable, competent, compassionate, and has the best demeanor. Also, the office staff members are to be commended, they are professional and cordial. I highly recommend heart patients to rely on Dr. Bowers and his team without any hesitation.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN! My last visit with Dr. Bruce Bowers was excellent as always. That's why I followed him to this new location. Moreover, it is great to know that he is now with this Heart Hospital. - The hospital and the Personnel are great. I will return as per Dr. Bower's request in December 2020. Hans Schnitzler.

We were very fortunate that Dr. Bowers was referred to our family during our "mini crisis." Always look forward to my visit with Dr. Bowers and his Staff. Treated so professionally and with genuine care and concern. Dr. Bowers always has something positive to say and inquires about what you have been up to and about your family. Very patient with answering my questions. I leave the appointment feeling very uplifted. So grateful and thankful that I am in the care of Dr. Bowers.

I travel over 300 miles one way to see Dr. Bowers because I feel he is the best cardiologist in my state of Texas. And he has a great bedside manner, he seems to actually care about me, as a patient not just a payment source.

Dr. Bowers is excellent, extremely knowledgeable, very professional and logical. He explained the situation and was in no rush to go into drastic testing but rather preferred to follow a step by step process to assess the situation without over stressing the body. Top notch medical knowledge and advice. Will definitely keep seeing Dr. Bowers and his clinic.
