Do not recommend-use one of his partners
I had two, back to back minimally invasive surgeries with him in 2021. He came highly recommended and I feel this was the worst mistake I could have ever made. Not only am I not better, I never felt any relief after either surgeries from the get go. He wanted to do a 3rd, but that would be a no go for me. I've worked with many neurosurgeons before, but his patient care skills are terrible. He's very dismissive and doesn't seem to care. You will see his nurse and PA more than you will ever see him. His office staff isn't any better. I had so many issues getting information lined up because I'm from out of town. Getting them to be on the same page was like pulling teeth. They were rude. I did more crying during my 14 week recovery due to mental frustration with him and his staff. I work in healthcare and this was by far my worst experience. Remember, your staff is a direct representation of you and your business. I give 3 stars because Nicole (RN) and Valerie (PA) were nice...

Dr. Bowie performed surgery on my lower back having to insert 2 rods and 8 screws to allow for less pain and greater mobility. The surgery was successful and I am now recovering. Although the recovery has taken quiet a while, it is progressing well. I would definitely recommend Dr. Bowie for anyone experiencing back issues. The Spine Hospital of Louisiana provided excellent, professional care. I would also highly recommend it.

Dr. Bowie performed a Spinal Fusion Surgery on my lower back in March 2021. I had not been able to walk properly and without great pain for 2 1/2 Years. My Cousin recommended Dr. Bowie to me. DR. Bowie listened to my concerns, and encouraged me to ask questions. I was treated with kindness and Compassion by Dr. Bowie and his Staff. The Surgery was a great success. I can walk again without pain. Dr. Bowie gave me my life back, and I am so grateful for that. He explained the Surgery to me, and after the surgery, I received great support whenever I called his office. I could not have asked for a better Doctor!

I came in the ER with neck pain and loss of strength in the left side of my body. Dr Bowie, after seeing the MRI, ordered me into surgery for a Spinal fusion Immediately. Totally took care of me and did not hesitate to make the decision to do what needed to be done! The recovery has been amazing considering what was done. I was back on my feet in 3 days since the surgery starting my path to what has been a steady progressing recovery towards unlimited potential. Everything was just perfect!! Thanks so much Dr Bowie for your expertise and prompt response. Trey B

After many hours of research on doctors, I selected Dr. Bowie - a gifted surgeon who performed a "miracle" on my lower back. He is talented, intense, and a perfectionist. I waited 3 months to do this review and I am happy to share that I continue to be "pain free" - no burning sensations, no pain so intense I could not stand, and no numbness in my back, legs, and feet. I was in the hospital three days and truly a mess at home for three days; but wow, recovery after that was fast.

Had some more back problems due to a military injury. I was referred thru the Veterans Choice Program. On my first visit he knew what I needed and scheduled the surgery. After the surgery I was relieved all of my pain. I want to thank Dr. Bowie for taking care of me and the Veterans.

Dr. Bowie is very professional and knowledgeable. He is direct and to the point which is something my wife and I like. He spends time explaining the problem and how it needs to be repaired. We travel almost 2 and a half hours one way for each appointment and it has been worth every visit. My surgery went well and recovery has been just as Dr. Bowie said it would. He is supported by a kind and courteous staff.
