What People Say About Dr. Karl Bowman Jr, MD

If you are thinking about shoulder surgery, look no further. Dr. Bowman performed shoulder surgery on both my wife and me. My wife recovered nicely, and less than 2 years later is 100%; my surgery was more extensive, including torn rotator cuff, and 7 months later I am in the final stages of rehabilitation. I began physical therapy within 2 wks of surgery, twice/week, with terrific staff. At 59 yrs old, I was a bit concerned, now at 60, I am 100% satisfied and excited to share my story!

Dr. Bowman seems to be a fine doctor. However, I'm not thrilled with the office staff. I had a complication with an injury but because I aggravated an old injury they refused to see me today saying it is a new injury and that I have to see Dr. Bowman. Even the scheduling receptionist thought it was crazy (Dr. Bowman is in surgery all day. So instead of seeing another available doctor I have to suffer another day. Time to find a new practice.
