I saw him to have a revision to my knee replacement. I ended up an above knee amputee because of an artery being accidentally and unknowingly cut, my leg was sewn shut with the artery still bleeding. I almost died. I am learning to walk again. Wouldn't recommend him to cut grass!

Zero stars were no a choice or I'd have chosen zero Left my 90 year old mother crippled after first surgery failed, then revision surgery failure. This person should not be allowed to practice orthopedic surgery or any other kind of surgery. First "surgery" in June. She has still not recovered due to the extensive work necessary to correct his surgeries. Obsolete parts were used in the second surgery. The new doctor didn't know that these parts still existed. A rod was inserted in her hip that is well known to dry out, causing complications. Now with all the trauma and anesthesia from two failed surgeries and on revision surgery by a competent surgeon, my mother is in a nursing home for the rest of her life. She was vivacious and independent until she had the misfortune of being treated by Dr. Bowman. Pretty obvious he didn't much care and didn't administer a thorough treatment...because she was 90. Thanks Dr. Bowman. For nothing.

Dr. Bowman has operated on both of my knees. He was very clear in his explanation as to what needed to be done to fix them. I had a scope performed on both for cartilage tears and lateral releases. Dr. Bowman also removed arthritis and pieces of floating bone. I trusted him completely throughout the entire process. My only complaint is the wait time in the lobby prior to an appointment. Be prepared to wait a long time. I chalk it up to him being a quality doctor with many patients.

Found out I would need a full hip replacement in November 2017 and scheduled the surgery with Dr. Bowman in February 2018. He and his office staff were nothing short of professional and concerning of my surgery. The surgery went perfect and I started rehab immediately upon release. It's been 5 months since the surgery, the hip feels better each day! The full recovery will certainly take a few more months but I am glad I had it done and especially locally. I definitely recommend Dr Bowman!

Not sure where the good reviews came from. (Relatives, himself ???). No doctor this uncaring and incompetent good get a good review from any one that has had the misfortune of being on the other side of a knife with this clown. Horrible, horrible man. I refuse to use the term doctor to describe him. Knowing his handy work I wouldn't let him cut my sandwich !

Dr. Bowman performed a Total Hip Replacement on my right hip on October 23, 2017. I had Avascular Necrosis of The Femoral Head. I had an office visit and felt right away that this doctor was the one I was going to let do the procedure. People were telling me to go to a Boston doctor and a Boston Hospital. Dr. Bowman was better than going to a Boston doctor. Dr. Bowman never pressured me to operate, it had to be done. I asked him to do the procedure. Outstanding Surgeon!! Simply the best!

My mother broke her hip. This um...surgeon put a plate and screw that came apart shortly after surgery. Four weeks later he had to repair his mistake. 4 more weeks later her pain was unbearable. We had to take her to a qualified surgeon elsewhere who noticed advanced arthritis and bone on bone. Where did this docor get his licence? Fingerhut ? Incompetent.

I have had two surgeries done by Dr. Bowman, a right knee arthroscopy and right rotator cuff with labrum repair.In both cases Dr. Bowman was very thorough with examination, requested X-rays,prescribed physical therapy,requested MRI before doing surgery.He has the most pleasant and. Ompassionate personality and truly cares about your well being. .

First time seeing Dr. Bowman for Frozen Shoulder. He was highly recommend to me by my husband & I can see why! He was very good listener & I needed a cortisone shot which was not a big deal at all (I was nervous to get the shot & he assured me it wasn't bad at all). He also explained my xrays in detail and was training a med student. I was very impressed at his detailed explanations to the student and to me. Only downfall was appointment availability, took a couple of weeks to see me.

He was professional, but the wait times in the office are long, and he seems to be in a rush to get out every time I've had to see him. He didn't explain my brake and my treatment as thoroughly as I wanted. He was in and out and I had to ask a lot of questions and he was still pretty short with me. Again he was nice and professional, just seemed to be in a rush every time.
