What People Say About Dr. Mary Bowles, MD

I love Dr. Bowles. I truly believe I would still be going from doctor to doctor for a diagnosis if I had not seen very early into my very rare illness. She is always warm, kind, compassionate, attentive and oh, so knowledgeable! She sent for test after test to reach her diagnosis. She did not tell me what she suspected but one of my other doctors read part of a letter she sent him. She sent me to UVA, I think for verification. I thank God for Dr. Bowles!

Dr. Bowles came highly recommended by my rheumatoid arthritis doctor. Sad to say, I cannot comment on Dr. Bowles' abilities because my appointment was cancelled three times - the morning of my appointment! The first time, I was told she was sick. I understand. I opted to wait a month to get into see her. The second time (a month later), same thiing. This morning, (another month later), same thing. As a patient, if you cancel after 24 hours of your appt. it's a $100 charge.

I went to Dr Bowles and was very glad I did. She is caring and concerned about me the patient. She is very good at listening and explaining everything. She wants to help find out what is causing the pain and help in anyway she can. I felt very comfortable with her and her knowledge of my condition. I would recommend her to anyone . The visit was more like visiting a friend instead of just another dr. Dr's like her are hard to find. I am happy to have finally have found a great neurologist.

Seven years ago, I started having serious memory issues, including getting lost in familiar places! She performed an extensive set of tests including the usual brain scans. But the memory tests were the most impressive. After what I remember as 6 months of testing, she sent me to the University of Virginia for another set of tests. Her professionalism bought me these 6 years of slow progress of my Lewy Body Dementia. Now, things are getting worse. But it has been good, thanks to her!

She did not demonstrate investigative neurological concern. Just offered potent meds w/ severe side effects, as a bandaid approach without knowing the underlying cause. I was looking for diagnosis, not pills.
