About Me

Care Philosophy

I treat every patient as if they were a close friend or family member. If there are decisions to be made I let the patient know my preferences in the evaluation and treatment of their issues. I let them make the final decision unless they choose a medication or controlled substance that I do not feel is appropriate for their condition.

I was visiting Rolla from out of town for a few days. I woke up with an emergent medical issue that would most probably not allowed me to fly back on my scheduled flight at 8 pm. Dr Bowers saw me early in his walk in clinic and after lab work was able to diagnose and treat. I did make my flight. He has a kind quiet demeanor and his nurse Gina was friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this physician.
