Patient Comments (1)
Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Bowns walks into the examining room and does not have the courtesy to introduce himself to you.. Most doctors look you in the eye and shake your head. He did neither. His mannerisms are bizarre and did not install confidence. He asked my if my eye ball was swollen. How would I know? Isn' t that his job. My eye lid was swollen and inflamed and I never got the impression that he saw it. He seemed to be doubting me. Other doctors at this practice are fabulous. Steer away from Dr Bowns.
