About Me

Care Philosophy

Once I walk into the room I feel it is my responsibility to ensure that patient gets the best possible care.  Sometimes that means simply listening, other times it means being at the top of my game technically and knowledge wise, and sometimes i...

Dr. Bowers has treated me for cardiac arrhythmia and has monitored my progress for several years. I trust him and believe that he is most qualified to correct this condition. He has told me that there isn't a cure but that symptoms can be controlled, and I appreciate his candor. I recommend him highly and am thankful that I had the good fortune to be referred to him myself.

I consistently refer anyone that I meet and/or know who is in need of an electrophysiologist. Dr. Bowers and the clinic have taken care of my heart and my health since 2016. He treated me for atrial fibrillation. I have been in normal rhythm since then. My wait time in the clinic is short. He answer all my questions and oversee my hearts continued healthy function.

I don't know yet; but my first encounter with his staff was fruitful and encouraging. I was medically retired from law enforcement due to a broken back and heart attack. I learned that Dr. Bowers will take me as a WC patient and based on what I've learned about him, I am looking forward to have him care for my medical needs. Ken Y Carson City NV - Nov. 16, 2018

I went to Dr. Bowers because I know several people in my town who had seen him and they all raved about him and heard he was the best in the area for atrial fibrillation. I was quite young to have atrial fibrillation and struggled to keep working because of it. Dr. Bowers helped me keep my job while I struggled through it. We held off on an ablation for a long time due to my age but eventually had a procedure that cured my problem. I can't thank him enough for his expertise.

He was entirely uninterested and bored throughout the appt. He prescribed a class c drug and ignored me completely when I said that I am trying to conceive. Dismissed my question about having raynauds and taking the med, He reluctantly agreed to schedule an echo but insisted I would find nothing wrong. However I found out by calling that appointment does not exist and is actually a consult with his assistant, and I am still waiting on a call back. The most inconsiderate doctor I have ever met

I had one appointment with Dr. Bowers, and needed him to write me a note to allow me to return to work. He wrote me that note but it had untrue information on it which nearly led to me being fired. I called immediately to have the error corrected. It's been a week and a half since and not a peep from Dr. Bowers or his medical assistant.

I have been treated like I should already know what to expect. Answers to my concerns and questions sounded like he was bored--which is pretty much the tone that has been set starting at the front office staff.

Found him dismissive with lack of empathy. Answers were put downs. When asked about my arythmia... Very common, lots of people have this. When asked about medicine amount.. Lots of people take more. Hello...I am not lots of people and have had some serious cardiac electrical issues in the past... Prior surgery also lightly treated.
