Dr. Bowden is wonderful. I have been going to her for years and I will never go to another GI! She is always available to her patients and she has a wonderful staff around her as well. Very knowledgeable!

Dr. Bowden was the most caring doctor I've seen in a long time. Other doctors dismissed my problems. But she listened and asked me more questions. She was thoughtful and explained to me all the possible diagnoses and how she would figure which one was correct. I am thankful I found her.

I met Dr. Bowden and will never go back. She was not personal, no empathy, yelled at her coworkers and I saw her less than the attending. I would highly advise seeing anybody else. Medicine should be about the patient. Will be reporting to State Boards.
