Patient Comments (2)
in El Cajon, Ca |
Although there may be a wait to see the doctor, once you see him his time is solely dedicated to you and what ever reason you are there to see for. He is a doctor who spends time with his patiants to really try to find the source of the problem. Unlike HMO's who are quick to finish and dismiss you for the next patient. He is what doctors are supposed to be and not what they have become. Kudos to you Doctor Bower!!
Very disrespectful to my grandma He thinks his time is more important than everyone else
