Dr. Bowlin was great to us. My wife had plantar The doctor guided her through a non-invasive course of action that resulted in immediate pain relief, and no surgery. He was professional, courteous, and happy to answer all our questions. We are very happy with him!

after my second appointment with him I saw another doctor who ordered the appropriate test and found out I had a stress fracture. Dr Bowlin missed it and didn't even mention it as a possibility. im glad I didn't get an injection as that would have made the situation worse. see another doctor. he is not a good one

Dr. Bowlin is amazing. He had to do surgery on my foot a couple of yrs ago. And I had to do physical therapy. And every thing turned out just fine. He's very nice and sweet. Also, very professional. He listens and answers every question. I highly recommend going to him. My husband even sees him. Only foot doctor I will go to. I don't want some other doctor messing with my foot.

Very Professional and personable. I did have to wait a little while in the waiting room but he's obviously a popular Doctor. Some reviews bashed him for being "arrogant" but I didn't get that impression at all. I would call it confidence and that's what you want in a Physician. I've been to a number of Podiatrists in the area and he is Top notch.

Great experience for a doctors office... He was thorough in examination of a foot issue, addressed issue, and was concise about followup care. I would definitely recommend Dr Bowlin as a Podiatrist

My husband had charcot and had to have surgery twice. He did a horrible job. We went to other drs. and the only way they can fix this mess is to amputate all or part of his foot. We would not recommend him to anyone. We would fill charges if we could. He was more interested in sports than doctoring.

I Waited over an hour for my appointment. When I finally got called back he came into room & was extremely short and very arrogant. He seems to be that way with patients and staff. Will not return!
