Dr. / MAJ Bowsher is the best specialist I've been to in or out of the Army. He is one of the few doctors left in this world who really cares about people and takes pride in the quality of his work. We were recommended to him by a friend for our 2 year old son who had a congenital pediatric cataract. We flew all the way to DC from where we were stationed in Korea to have him perform the surgery. It was worth it! Dr. Bowsher exceeded our expectations.
